Simple summer fruit compote

24 May 2011

To me, summer means short shorts.  It means prancing around in a one-piece bathing suit with a fanny pack around my waist while yelling at unruly children.  It means hitting spin class every day.

Summer is almost here, and I am not prepared.

I’ve spent the month of May straying from my healthy eating intentions and enjoying round-the-clock access to a fully-stocked kitchen.  Oops.

Cue this compote.  It is a simple assortment of summer fruits drizzled with a little bit of honey.  It is good for topping pancakes with, topping with almond butter for a snack, and just sweet enough to work as a dessert.

Stick the fruit mixture into the fridge to let the flavors marinate for a wonderful rich taste worthy of any hot summer day.

And dessert every day?  Yes, please.

Simple Summer Fruit Compote

  • 1/2 banana, sliced thinly
  • 4-5 ripe strawberries, sliced width-wise
  • 1/2 c. black berries
  • 1/2 c. blueberries
  • drizzle of honey
  1. Combine first 4 ingredients in a medium bowl.
  2. Drizzle honey on fruit and toss.
  3. Stick the compote in the fridge and let the flavors marinate.

**Lasts for 1-2 days, so make this compote in relatively small batches.
