For a sweet, fruity treat that won't cost you a days-worth of calories, this simple yogurt bowl is the perfect solution. When making this Greek Yogurt with Warm Black and Blueberry Sauce in the summer, substitute fresh berries for frozen. This sauce also pairs well with biscuits or as a stand-in for syrup on pancakes.
2/3 cup frozen blueberries
2/3 cup frozen blackberries
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon butter
2 cups plain 2% reduced-fat Greek yogurt
How to Make It
Combine first 5 ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; gently boil 10 minutes or until sauce thickens. Stir in butter.
Spoon 1/2 cup yogurt into each of 4 bowls; top each serving with about 1/4 cup sauce. Serve immediately.
Very very delicious. When I made it, I didn't use butter though, and I boiled the mixture for about half hour instead. When it cooled down, it became very thick, jam-like, so I put it on a toast the next day.

I actually prefer this as a breakfast but it worked well as a dessert as well. I substituted a frozen bag of mixed berries because I already had that in my freezer.

This was delicious when we made it for Father's Day dessert this year. I believe I added some corn starch to get the sauce to thicken better. Also, because plain Greek yogurt is soooo tart, we prefer to add a teaspoon of Tupelo honey to each parfait to sweeten it some. Wonderful recipe!
I thought this made a perfect sauce. It didn't really thicken, but was still delicious. Also, I like that there's not too much added sugar. Also, I used orange juice instead of lemon juice b/c I didn't have any lemons on hand. I poured it over pancakes, but know it would be good in yogurt too. I would definitely make this again.
I tried this recipe using fresh berries. It took quite awhile for the sauce to thicken. The sweetness of the warm sauce blended fairly well with the tart yogurt. But be forewarned: this recipe should not be assembled in advance. I had one parfait that had chilled overnight and the berries were totally lost under the flavor of the yogurt. Next time I will reheat the remaining sauce before serving over the yogurt. This really isn't a bad recipe, but because I prefer to make my desserts in advance, I won't be making this again.
