Today’s recipe is very simple and takes hardly any time at all to prepare. I love to have yogurt for breakfast in the morning, but I like to buy plain yogurt (instead of vanilla or flavored) since it doesn’t have all the sugars in it. However, plain yogurt is pretty sour and I need something tasty to mix in it.
Enter easy berry sauce. It jazzes up plain ‘ol yogurt and makes it tasty and flavored! I used fresh blueberries to make this particular berry sauce, but you can use whatever berries you have on hand. If you don’t have any fresh, frozen berries work just fine.
Yogurt makes a wonderful breakfast, and in addition to this berry sauce, I love to add my homemade granola and sliced bananas/strawberries/whatever other fruit I have on hand.
