Blueberry Mornings

My delicious breakfast. Steel Cut Oatmeal topped with warm Blueberry & Almond Compote and a splash of Vanilla Soy Milk. Whole grains, antioxidants, fiber and nutrients. This breakfast is not only yummy but it's a powerhouse of good stuff for your body. LOL See I eat carbs. Mmmmm....


Shelly's Blueberry Almond Compote

1 cup Blueberries
2 Tablespoons Sugar Free Torani or Davinci Syrup (I used Davinci SF Blueberry)
1 Tablespoon Sugar Free Jello Vanilla Pudding Mix, dry
1/4 cup Sliced Almonds

Wash blueberries and place in a glass microwave safe bowl. Add syrup. Microwave for 3 minutes. Using a fork smoosh (a very technical cooking term) any remaining whole berries. Spoon 3 tablespoons on the expelled berry juice into a measuring cup add pudding mix. Stir till well blended and then add that mixture back to the berries. Add almonds. Stir till combined.

Great on top of oatmeal, yogurt, ricotta or cottage cheese.

Here's another quick & protein packed breakfast idea using this compote...


Shelly's Lemon Blueberry Yogurt Parfait

3 oz. Fage Greek Yogurt
1 Tablespoon Sugar Free Jello Pudding Mix, dry (I used SF Lemon)
1 Tablespoon Sugar Free Torani Syrup (I used SF Vanilla)
1/4 cup of Shelly's Blueberry Almond Compote
a few more Sliced Almonds for the top

Mix yogurt, pudding mix and syrup together till well combined. Spoon into parfait glass. Spoon compote over yogurt. Sprinkle with additional almonds.

If anyone lives near a Smart and Final they may have a marvelous selection of the Torani SF syrups. I've only been to one store and their selection was great. My neighbor said she went to a different store and there were no SF syrups available at all. So it maybe be a hit or miss. But they are only $4 and some change so if you can track them down it's a big score. I'm madly in love with 'Brown Sugar Cinnamon' but it's really hard to find anywhere, I'm discovering.

Perfect timing! I'm up in Alaska and spent the weekend picking blueberries. Definitely making some muffins, but now I have a new recipe to try. It sounds delicious! Thanks for all of your great ideas. Got anything for fresh Alaska raspberries now?

THANK YOU....not all carbs are created equal! I love Irish Oatmeal for lots of reasons. I usually do a bit o' margarine and sf syrup, but this looks MUCH yummier!
