Apple and Date Compote with Greek Yogurt

For someone who doesn't have much of an appreciation for dates, I have to say that this recipe may have converted me! I don't know what inspired me to try this combo, but whatever it was, I am SO thankful (and my son is too!). When the compote was just about done I snuck a taste and realized that it was VERY sweet (almost too sweet for ME, if that's possible!) I personally though that it needed something tart to balance out the sweetness. Though the lemon zest is "optional" in this recipe I do suggest you add some as it really balances out the flavours of the compote.

(Makes about 3/4 with the yogurt)
1 lg. apple (any type apple that is not too sweet!)
8 pitted dates
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup water
zest of 1/2 lemon (optional)
1-2 tbsp. greek yogurt (optional)

Add peeled and chopped apples (into 2 inch pieces), pitted dates, cinnamon, and lemon zest to a small saucepan. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to medium-low.

Cook on medium-low for about 12-15 minutes, or until most of the water has evaporated and the fruit is tender. *Do not cook until all the water is evaporated as you can use it to thin out the fruit puree while blending.

Puree fruit (and leftover water) with a hand mixer then add 1-2 tbsp. of yogurt and mix.

Sprinkle with cinnamon, or add flax or baby cereal to thicken the puree before serving.
