Strawberry Raspberry Chia Compote

By | April 01, 2015


Place fruit, juice, and sweetener of choice in a small saucepan and bring to medium heat. Bring to a low boil, and then reduce heat slightly to simmer. Using a spoon, gently mash the fruit. Continue cooking over medium-low heat for 7-8 minutes while stirring frequently.

Meanwhile, dissolve arrowroot starch in a small bowl with 2 tablespoons of water and whisk together to form a slurry. Once dissolved, stir arrowroot slurry into compote and continue to simmer for 4-5 minutes to allow thickening to occur.

Remove from heat and stir in chia seeds. Transfer to a clean jar or container to cool thoroughly in the fridge - compote will continue to thicken as it cools.

Once cooled, serve over Honey Lemon Pudding, your morning oatmeal, pancakes, or yogurt.
