Fruit compote a la mode

Turn dried fruit into a tasty topping for frozen yogurt.

Half a cup of this fruit compote provides 2 servings of fruit.

To make this plant based, use vegan frozen yogurt.

Ingredients (Serves 8)

  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened orange juice
  • 1 12-ounce package mixed dried fruit (dice larger pieces of fruit)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 4 cups fat-free vanilla frozen yogurt


Combine water, orange juice, dried fruit, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger in a saucepan and place over medium heat. Gently stir and simmer for 10 minutes, covered.

Remove the cover and continue to simmer over very low heat for an additional 10 minutes or until the fruit is soft.

Serve warm or cold in bowls with vanilla frozen yogurt.
