- In a medium saucepan, add blueberries, lemon juice and enough water to cover 1/4 inch of pot. Allow blueberries to simmer on medium heat for 3-5 minutes; add honey.
- Continue simmering blueberries, stirring frequently and mashing the blueberries with a fork or the back of a spoon until almost all of the water has evaporated (approximately 20-30 minutes). The more the water evaporates, the more frequently you will need to stir. When blueberries are completely mashed and have reached a syrupy consistency, remove from heat.
- Place compote in a container or jar, allow to cool completely (about 2-3 hours) and store in the fridge for later use!
- Mix 2 tablespoons of blueberry compote with 1 cup of plain yogurt. Top with granola or fresh berries and serve.
