Easy and delicious This recipe is quick and easy, especially since the main ingredient is frozen berries. The result is a sauce that is not too sweet and is a great topping for my cream cheese pound cake. Everyone thought I went to a lot more trouble than I did. Pros: Not too sweet

This is an easy and delicious compote, everyone in my family loved it! Very lovely breakfast addition instead of using high calorie syrups. I paired it with Eating Well Whole Grain Buttermilk Pancakes, it was delicious! My fussy 3 year old gobbled it up. Definitely give this a go, you will not be disappointed. Pros: Easy, simple ingredients, quick Cons: none
