  • 3 organic apples, peeled, cored and cut into small wedges
  • 3 cups fresh mixed organic berries (blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, strawberries - whatever is in season, or frozen if not in season)
  • 1 cup thick, natural organic yoghurt (use milk, soy, coconut or other)
  • 1/2 cup raw sugar
  • 1/4 cup pistachio nuts
  • 1/4 cup pecan nuts (can use walnuts)
  • 1/3 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • Water
  • Raw honey to drizzle


  1. Put the sugar, orange juice, cinnamon sticks and 1/2 cup water in a medium saucepan.
  2. Cook this mixture over a medium heat, stirring regularly.
  3. Once the sugar has completely dissolved, bring the mixture to the boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 3-5 minutes, or when mixture is slightly reduced.
  4. Add apples and gently simmer for a further 7 minutes.
  5. Add mixed berries and stir to combine into the mixture. Simmer for a further 5 minutes.
  6. Set aside the mixture to cool.
  7. Transfer to a freeze-proof dish, cover and refridgerate.
  8. When ready to serve, spoon some of the apple and berry into 4 serving glasses.
  9. Top with the yoghurt, sprinkle with the nuts and drizzle with the honey and serve.

Any leftover compote can be kept in the refridgerator for 3-4 day.

Dried berries, dried apricots, dried nectarines - can also be used, but the simmer time needs to be longer.
