If you’ve never made fruit compote before, you’re in for a treat!

Fruit compote is an easy way to change up how you make use of frozen fruit by serving it warm like a sauce, perfect for enjoying fruit in the cooler months.

Whether you freeze some of your favorite seasonal produce to enjoy in the off-season or purchase frozen fruit from the store, this easy fruit compote is a fun way to bring a little flavor and sweetness to whatever you add it to.

You can use this fruit compote on top of oatmeal, desserts, pancakes, ice cream or anything you’d like!

Make This Fruit Compote as Part of  Balanced Meal Using the Foundational Five Nourish Meal Template

A Foundational Five Nourish Meal contains all five elements of a balanced meal: non-starchy carbohydrates, starchy carbohydrates, healthy fat, protein, and the flavor factor.

To make this a complete meal, make sure you have all five elements on your plate!
