Quick and Easy Greek Yogurt Topping

posted by on September 05th, 2014

Lately I’ve been obsessed with Greek yogurt. I love the minimal ingredients in it, the creaminess, and the high protein content. But I think I’m not alone in needing a little bit of sweetness to cut the tart flavor. There are plenty of choices of Greek yogurts that come with fruit already in them, or a little cup of fruity jelly on the side. That’s lovely I’m sure, but the problem I have is with the high sugar content in most of them. So I’ve come up with a solution that helps keep me in control of my sugar intake.

Homemade fruit topping! It’s fresh and delicious and so easy to make! All you need is a pint of your favorite fruit diced up, 2-3 tablespoons of sugar (depending on how sweet you want it), and a splash of vanilla extract. Simmer together in a sauce pan on medium until some of the liquid from the fruit has reduced. Then I let it cool for about 5 minutes, and mash up some of the bigger chunks with a fork. It keeps in the fridge for about a week, and ugh it’s so so delicious!
