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.

Save Money on Event Planning

Whether we like it or not, we will all at one point have to wear the event planning cap. Why is that?
