Thick Greek yogurt with quick berry compote by Katie Caldesi makes a super simple breakfast that's filling and low in carbs. Add a few tablespoons of high protein nuts or seeds like almonds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, or hemp seeds to make it more satiating. You could also have a hard-boiled egg on the side.





  • 4 oz.
    mixed berries
  • 1 tsp
    vanilla extract, to taste
  • 2 tbsp
    orange juice
  • 2 tbsp
    powdered erythritol (optional)


  • 2 cups
    Greek yogurt (0% fat)


Microwave method

  1. To make this in an instant, put all the compote ingredients in a microwave-proof bowl and heat on full power for about 3 minutes or until the berries are soft and begin to collapse. Then stir into the Greek yogurt.

Pan method

  1. Put all the compote ingredients into a saucepan with a splash of water and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently.

  2. When the berries are soft, they are done. This should take about 5-7 minutes.

  3. Mix into the Greek yogurt and serve straight away or chill in the fridge until you are ready to eat.



Make a simple version of this delicious treat by mashing fresh berries into Greek yogurt. It will bring out the flavors of berries!
