BLUEBERRY AND BLACKBERRY SAUCE WITH YOGURT

RECIPES

So, guess what? Our blender broke! It just wouldn’t start one morning. It was a wedding gift, which was five years ago now, but I have no idea what happened. I had all of my smoothie goodies piled in and ready to get blended and… nothing. Secretly, I was thrilled and I’ll tell you why in a second. In the meantime, I had this Blueberry and Blackberry Sauce with Yogurt recipe (no blender required) from Cooking Light.

In the midst of shopping for the recipe ingredients, I happened to discover So Delicious Dairy Free Yogurt. I didn’t even know this existed! I picked up a couple of containers of their plain, dairy-free yogurt along with the other few ingredients that I needed and headed home to make this easy fruit and yogurt combination.

Isn’t it pretty? The colors and swirls made me want to do a photo shoot immediately.

Time For An Upgrade

So, getting back to why I was happy that our blender broke… Mike has been wanting to get a Vitamix for a while. But, since we already had a blender, I couldn’t justify making the purchase… until now. I can’t wait!

Do you own a Vitamix? Which kind should I get?

BLUEBERRY AND BLACKBERRY SAUCE WITH YOGURT

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup blueberries
  • 2/3 cup blackberries
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon butter 2 cups plain reduced-fat Greek yogurt

Instructions

  1. Add the first five ingredients to a small saucepan and bring mixture to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat to medium-low and gently boil until sauce thickens, about 10-15 minutes.
  3. Stir in the butter.
  4. Spoon yogurt into bowls and top each with about 1/4 cup of the sauce or more, if desired.
  5. Top with additional blueberries or blackberries.

Notes

I used dairy free plain coconut milk yogurt by SO Delicious ®. Use their vanilla flavor for more sweetness, if desired.
