Greek Yogurt with Warm Berry Sauce

Greek Yogurt with Warm Berry Sauce

You know what I love?

Recipes that can be eaten for breakfast AND dessert.

I can’t even begin to tell you how wonderful this Greek yogurt with warm berry sauce is. It is super easy to prepare and does not contain very much sugar which makes it a great option for breakfast or dessert. I could just eat it with a spoon as is. Also, look how pretty it is!! It’s happiness in a bowl!

In fact, it’s very possible I did eat it with a spoon right out of the pan. It’s also possible that I burned the s*&# out of my tongue…I really have no patience whatsoever.

The sauce is just perfect to balance out the tanginess of the Greek yogurt. You could also serve this sauce over ice cream or even oatmeal. It would also be awesome over pancakes or waffles! It’s all good! But maybe take my advice and don’t eat it out of the pan when scalding hot…

    Berry sauce does have a myriad of tasty uses. Using it as a topping over yogurt is probably the healthiest move and a pretty delicious one. I sometimes crave these parfait type things for breakfast. Sorry your taste test was a little too soon on the sauce and you burned your tongue-hopefully it will be back to normal in a few days.

    You make such a delicious treat look so simple! I love warm sauces to go on desserts…your recipe looks so sweet and tangy and satisfying! I like that you use Greek yogurt instead of ice cream – great for nutrition and guilt free!

    This look so good. Especially since it’s berry sauce. Lots os tastes to be enjoyed and even mixes of different berries. I bet it would be fantastic for breakfast with a scattering of granola on the top too… heaven!

    How interesting – I love Greek yogurt, as a snack and to cook with, but I never though to combine it with a warm sauce. Sounds fantastic!

    Love this. I am always looking for ways to eat and dress up my greek yogurt. I would probably do this for breakfast because I like to eat breakfast and make myself think I am having a dessert:-)

    This looks so easy yet so delectable! I can’t wait to slather this all over ice cream!

    Anna @ hiddenponies — May 3, 2012 at 1:13 am

    This looks like a perfect last-minute sauce to throw on pretty much anything – I’m thinking angel food cake and ice cream for dessert, but your yogurt combo looks PERFECT for breakfast!

    I eat Greek yogurt every day and a little berry sauce on top would be a good thing!

    I love making my own berry sauce and I have burned my tongue so many times I lost count, but it seems I never learn. Eating straight form the pan is oh so good!

    Vicki @ WITK — May 3, 2012 at 4:23 pm

    Noted, do not eat boiling hot berry sauce, no matter how tasty it looks! :)

    I never thought of putting warm berry sauce over yogurt, but I’m loving this idea. Beautiful parfaits :)

    mmm… love the idea of this warm berry sauce with Greek yogurt… looks beautiful too. Minus the sugar, I think I could eat it for breakfast as well! (maybe just a splash of agave at that hour ;-)).

    This makes me want to say “berries, berries and WHAT ELSE?” Like that commercial with the little lad? Starbursts? Am I losing tons of cool points here?

    Either way, looks delicious!

    Love this…yogurt for the breakfast version, ice cream for dessert. You know a recipe is good that you would rather burn the crap out of your mouth rather than wait for it to cool to eat!
