GLUTEN-FREE, GRAIN-FREE, REFINED SUGAR-FREE, SPECIFIC CARBOHYDRATE DIET (SCD)
I am currently loving yoghurt and berry compotes and eat them regularly for breakfast. After my recent Crohn’s flare, I still haven’t been able to re-introduce raw foods. This is a great way to still get my daily fruit quota without hurting my tummy. All of this, and they look so pretty! This is also a great recipe if you have bought too much fruit and you’re not sure what to do with it. You can made a big batch of compote, allow it to cool and keep it in the fridge in an airtight container for a few days. When you fancy some, just add a few tablespoons to some SCD yoghurt. Voila! You have yourself a healthy and nutritious snack. To see how I make my SCD yoghurt, click here.
Berry compotes are such a handy thing to learn how to make. They are so easy and you’re essentially making your own quick and healthy jam. I don’t add any honey while making this because it can tend to burn on the stove but feel free to add a drizzle of honey when serving. The flavour possibilities are endless – use whatever is in season. I love raspberry, strawberry or blueberry in particular. Or you could try mixing berries for a delightful twist. My daughter loves this as an after dinner snack and it is so much healthier than store-bought yoghurts which are sugar-laden. If serving to small children, simply omit the whole nuts.
This yoghurt and berry compote recipe is a great one to add to your repertoire. I usually make a batch on a Sunday evening for busy work morning breakfasts. The perfect, healthy breakfast for when you’re on the go!
