Greek Yogurt with Warm Berry Sauce

Are you one of those people who doesn’t like a really sweet dessert?  Or are you someone like me who loves sweet dessert but doesn’t want to feel guilty after eating it?  And are you also someone like me who keeps frozen fruit on hand for smoothies?  If so, Greek Yogurt with Warm Berry Sauce is just for you.

Frozen blueberries and blackberries are simmered with sugar, water, and lemon juice to create a rich and vibrant berry sauce that is spooned over plain Greek yogurt for a slightly tart yet slighty sweet and overall delicious dessert treat.  The smell of cooking berries permeates the kitchen so beautifully that you wonder why you ever bought a berry-scented candle before.  This berry sauce is beautiful and would be delicious over ice cream, pancakes, waffles, or anything else you can think of.  Use any mixture of berries you like as I think strawberries or raspberries would be delicious too. 

The ingredients:

Combine blueberries, blackberries, water, lemon juice, and sugar in a small saucepan.  Bring mixture to a boil and reduce heat to medium-low, simmering for 10 minutes

Stir in butter until melted.

Spoon 1/2 cup yogurt into each of 4 bowls and top each serving with about 1/4 cup sauce.
