Homemade fruit on the bottom yogurt cups made with blueberries, maple syrup and Greek yogurt.


  • 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen berries
  • 3 Tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • Plain greek yogurt -OR- {Homemade Yogurt|}


  1. In a small sauce pan add the berries and the maple syrup. Heat the mixture over medium heat. Let the mixture simmer, stirring often, until the liquid reduces by about half. This should take 10-12 minutes.
  2. If you are using fresh berries mash them a bit in the beginning so that they release their juice and don’t burn.
  3. Divide the berry mixture evenly into 6 1-cup (half pint) wide mouth mason jars. Add yogurt to the jars so that it is on top of the berries (I put on 3/4 of a cup of yogurt in each jar – you could add between 1/2 cup and 1 cup depending on what you want for a serving size and how fruity you like your yogurt). Place on a lid (the flat and the ring), and store in the fridge.
  4. When you are ready to eat just stir the fruit and yogurt together and enjoy it right out of the jar.


These travel and store well if the lid is put on tight.

Give these a try with the amount of maple syrup recommended, but if it isn’t sweet enough for your tastes try adding a bit more. You could always add a swirl to the top if it isn’t sweet enough too. I also like to add chia seeds before I eat it.
