3 sweet breakfast recipes to try at home
Compote and fruit yogurt
A perfect choice for one of your sweet breakfast recipes.
- Frozen fruit puree (use any combination of berries, currants or stone fruit).
- Sugar (the amount of sugar you use depends on the type of fruit you use and personal preference).
Place the frozen fruit puree in a large saucepan, add the sugar and cook over medium heat for 8 minutes. Stir often. The fruit will release lots of juice. Bring to the boil and cook for a couple of minutes. Let it cool.
Spoon the compote into the jars and top with fruit yogurt – 1-part puree to 2-parts yogurt. Sprinkle with granola.
