A fruit topping made with fresh blueberries, perfect over ice cream, rice pudding, or mousse, just use your imagination.
This morning I made homemade crepes topped with blueberry compote and it was delicious! I love to make compote with fresh berries like blueberries, blackberries or raspberries to serve over crepes, whole wheat pancakes, waffles, or oatmeal.
Yield: 4 servings
Serving Size: 2 Tbsp
- 2 cups fresh blueberries
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 3 tbsp water
- In a blender, pulse the blueberries, water and sugar.

This is delicious. I like using it over pancakes.
I pulsed the ingredients as recommended, ended up cooking twice as long but still ended up with a cup instead of 1/2 cup. I don’t see how I could’ve reduced it any more. Since it said to pulse the blender, I did leave the berries kind of choppy. Should I have blended until smooth? It has a really good taste to it but just wondering how my measurements could be so off.
Blueberries vary in size and volume so if your berries were smaller they may have had more and that equals more liquid(juice.z). They can be pea sized and get as big as a nickel so it’s quite a variation.
This recipe sounds amazing! I would like to make this to put on to Greek yogurt for a tasty treat. How long will the compote keep for? Thanks!!
Can I use frozen blueberries and if I make a triple batch, can I freeze the leftovers?
Luv all your recipes…thank you!!
Frozen berries would work, not sure how it would freeze
if i use Truvia instead of sugar what will the calorie count be?
P.S. I got your cookbook for Christmas and I LOVE IT!
Yummy! I used this to top the Lemon Cheesecake Yogurt Cups since I had blueberries and no blackberries. Per my husband (a chef), both recipes were great, but I used too much of the compote on the cheesecakes. His suggestion was to maybe double or triple the cheesecake recipe and then spread the compote among them. Of course, that may be because he wants to eat all of them.
Could I use Liquid Stevia instead? I am trying to reduce my sugar intake…
Sure I think it would be fine if you like the taste
My mom made your Whole Wheat Blueberry pancakes topped with this compote for my dad for Father's Day brunch and they were a HUGE hit! I've tried a couple of your recipes and they earn rave reviews each and every time! Thanks for the wonderful recipes!
I wonder if you could make this with agave nectar and eliminate the water and sugar?
This made for a *wonderful* pancake breakfast!!! I did use splenda…and it was perfect. Thanks!
I used blackberries and strawberries instead of the blueberries and added some lemon zest. It's amazing! I put it on non fat greek yogurt and add a sprinkle of low fat granola for a super good breakfast. Yum!
I have to admit, I panicked a bit while making it. I realized while cooking it that I didn't understand what "becomes thick and sticks to the spoon" truly meant. 30 minutes later on the stove, my compote was clumpy (should I have pureed it instead of using the chop feature on the blender?) and somewhat thick, but still liquidy.
Anyway, I don't think any of that mattered because regardless it tasted FABULOUS! In fact, I froze it and reheated it this morning smothered it all over your recipe for the Whole Wheat Pancakes.
Love it, love it – thank you for sharing!
This was absolutely delicious on your whole wheat pancakes (the new and improved version)! I made a double batch and froze half of it. I can't wait to try it with raspberries and blackberries too… I see a trip to the fruit market in my near future!
Made these this morning for my hubby…what a hit! I did the blueberry compote with the 1pt (prob 2pt on pts+??) crespelles. I had plenty left over from last nights dinner of your manicotti- which was also fabulous! Had to make 2 batches of the crespelles till I got the hang of it. You are awesome, Gina! Please keep these great recipes coming! 🙂 Andi
Thanks for noticing! I just checked again, it's 0 points if you make it with Splenda, 1 point with sugar.
How is it 1/2 point for a tbsp if using splenda? Aren't fresh blueberries only 1 point a cup or something???
It's a half point with splenda
how many points is the blueberry compote if you use splenda?
It's great of pancakes! Thanks for sharing!
I made whole wheat pancakes today & topped it with this. It was heavenly! My kids gobbled it up! I can't wait to try it with other dishes & with different fruits!
I made this for Breakfast this morning with your crepe recipe, and WOW!!!! Would never have guessed it was not laden with fat and calories, everyone LOVED it!! 🙂
Oh that looks delish! I love 1 pts! I love 0 pts better, but 1 pts is a close second! 😉
Oh YUM!! I love crepes and I've been yearning to do more with all the fruit that's coming into season. I can't wait to try this!!
Thanks for sharing.
