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…
- 1 1/3 cups frozen mixed berries (or any blend of berries you prefer)
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 tbs. lemon juice
- 1 tbs. butter
- 2 cups plain reduced-fat Greek yogurt
- Combine the berries, sugar, water, and lemon juice in a small sauce pan. Bring the mixture to a boil and then reduce the heat to a gentle boil. Let the mixture boil for about 10 minutes or until the sauce begins to thicken. Stir in the butter.
- Fill serving bowls with the yogurt. Spoon the sauce evenly over the yogurt.
