For the blueberry compote:

  • 16 ounces blueberries fresh or frozen
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup or your favorite sweetener
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch

For the peach compote:

  • 1 lb. fresh peaches peeled, pitted, and cut into small chunks
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup or your favorite sweetener
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch

For assembling the yogurt cups

  • 8 4 - 6 ounce jars
  • 1 batch peach or blueberry compote
  • Large container plain Greek or regular yogurt*
  • Almond Coconut Chia Seed Granola or your favorite store bought variety for serving (optional)


Prepare the peach or blueberry compote (or both if desired!):

  • Place the fruit in a small sauce pan. Add the maple syrup, water, and cornstarch and stir until combined. Cook over medium heat until the fruit has softened slightly and the sauce has thickened, about 5-10 minutes. Cool completely.

Assemble the yogurt cups:

  • Place 2 tablespoons of the fruit compote in the bottom of each jar. Top with about 4 ounces of plain yogurt and place the lids on each one. Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. Top with granola when ready to eat, if desired, and enjoy!


  • *It's important to use plain yogurt to minimize the amount of sugar since the compote is sweetened. If you like a sweeter compote, simply add another tablespoon or so of sweetener.
  • You should have some extra compote leftover, which is great for oatmeal, pancakes, waffles, or ice cream!
