Sugar-free Blueberry Lemon Compote

Sugar-free Blueberry Lemon Compote- all you need is just 3 ingredients to make this simple antioxidant-packed treat. Perfect for topping oatmeal, toast, pancakes or waffles!

Have you ever tried making your own compote?

I typically prefer to eat fresh fruit but in the winter months I find myself craving berries like crazy. Rather than spend a ridiculous amount of the imported fresh berries, I just buy them frozen and make compote.

It’s so easy and especially delicious with all the warm breakfast foods we tend to eat more of this time of year. Oatmeal, pancakes, waffles, toast…it really is the perfect topping!

Of course you can make compote with any kind of fruit you like, but this blueberry lemon combination is my personal favorite for a few reasons:

  • Blueberries don’t have any seeds so you don’t have to worry about anything getting stuck in your teeth.
  • Lemons are relatively low in sugar but provide a contrast with the natural sweetness of the blueberries.

To make it all you have to do is dump a bag of frozen berries in a saucepan, squeeze in fresh lemon juice and a splash of vanilla extract then bring to boil. After about 15 minutes, remove it from the heat and it will thicken as it cools. That’s all there is to it!

Also, feel free to change it up with your favorite fruit or citrus juice. It’s completely customizable and you really can’t go wrong. Enjoy!
