This sweet and juicy blueberry compote is the perfect topping for everything from a Paleo cheesecake to some baked brie for a quick and yummy appetizer. I love to keep a jar on hand to stir into my favorite yogurt or to add it to a quick and delicious chia pudding!
Why Blueberries are So Good For You!
Blueberries are a staple in my house whether it is fresh plump summer berries, or frozen in the winter, these gorgeous little gems are a must. Why do I prefer frozen blueberries in the winter? Well, it’s all about nutrient density.
Blueberries are in season March-May which means the fresh berries you buy in the stores during these months are the most nutrient dense. But, I love blueberries all year long, so I buy frozen in the off season months because these berries were picked at the peak of the blueberry season and frozen, guaranteeing a nutritious berry all year long! The beauty of this recipe is that you can use fresh or frozen depending on the season!
