Ingredients

  • 2 cups blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream

Instructions

  1. Combine the blueberries, water, and honey to a small saucepan. Warm over low heat, then simmer until just starting to soften and burst, about three to five minutes. Crush the berries roughly with a fork, leaving some whole, and allow to cool.
  2. When the blueberry mixture has cooled, combine it with the Greek yogurt in a bowl.
  3. Beat the cream with an electric mixer until peaks form. Gently fold the whipped cream into the berry and yogurt mixture, leaving noticeable swirls. Separate into four single-serve dishes. Serve immediately or allow to set in the refrigerator for 1 hour before eating.

Recipe Notes

Feel free to substitute other fresh berries as available, or to combine the blueberries with strawberries, raspberries, or blackberries to taste.

Fresh berries not in season?  Substitute frozen berries in equal amounts, but omit the added water in the first step.
