Fruit on the Bottom Yogurt

26 Jun

Or on Top (twss)

I eat greek yogurt every morning for breakfast. And as much as I love those with fruits or flavorings, they always seem to be packed with sugar and god knows what else. Don’t get me wrong– i still buy these sometimes because i’m lazy– but DIY toppings are just tastier. One of my favorites– is plain greek yogurt with maple syrup and bananas (oooh and mangoes, f yea). But summer time comes and things get a little fruity. I love buying all this fresh fruit- but either I eat it all in one sitting- or it sits in my fridge and I forget about it. So when it starts to turn a bit, or isn’t quite as sweet as you want to be, or you want to just turn up the notch on the  flavor– and make it last for the week. I throw it in a pan for a hot minute. And presto.

Works with any fruit. for example

1 pint blueberries
1 tablespoon sugar (can increase if you want sweeter)
1 tablespoon water
zest and juice of half a lemon

put blueberries, sugar and water in a skillet. Cook for a few minutes on medium heat- will start to cook down (in maybe 3-5 minutes). smashed half with back of the spoon. finished with lemon.

same idea for peaches (for which i’d minus the zest) or any other fruit.

      i should! gotta say i tried it once in andorra– justin has a super cool yogurt maker thing. but perhaps it was because i had just found the greatest yogurt ever in the andorran supermarket— but somehow the one we made…. needed some tweaking to say the least haha.
