I happen to love yogurt, especially the thick and tangy Greek kind, but I’m not a big fan of the pre-flavored fruity varieties. Something about the fruit components taste kind of stale and old to me, if you know what I mean.

If you opened up my fridge right now you’d see tubs of plain yogurt, and I’ll add fruits, spiced and infused honeys, and nuts to them myself. Oh, and homemade granola! I think plain yogurt is so fun to jazz up, and this quick blueberry sauce is an example of something I’d stir into it:

The thing I love about fruit sauces is they feel so special and gourmet, but they’re ridiculously easy to make. While I’m doing blueberries and orange here, this same method can be applied to a whole lot of other fruits. You can do raspberries and fresh lemon juice, with a little splash of framboise. Or you could do strawberries with a splash of aged balsamic. The method remains really simple but you can get really creative with it, especially with the help of a book like The Flavor Bible. Let me show you how to make the blueberry sauce!

To get started, you want to juice some fresh clementines (or tangerines, oranges, etc):

Add the clementine juice to a saucepan filled with blueberries, sugar, and clementine zest:

Bring to a simmer over medium heat:

Then keep cooking for 15 minutes until the liquid reduces down and the sauce darkens:

The sauce is now ready!  You can serve it warm over ice cream, pancakes, waffles, etc, or you can chill it in the fridge and stir it into yogurt.

Clementine Blueberry Sauce

This Clementine Blueberry Sauce is great served over ice cream, stirred into yogurt, spooned over pancakes, and much more! It’s incredibly easy to make and has a lovely citrus berry flavor.

Ingredients:

  • 12 oz blueberries (I used frozen)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup fresh squeezed clementine juice (about 5 clementines)
  • 1 tsp clementine zest (zest of 1 clementine)

Directions:

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a heavy-bottomed saucepan, and place over medium heat. Bring to a simmer, then cook for 15 minutes until the blueberries start to burst and the liquid thickens slightly.
  2. Serve warm, over ice cream or other desired dessert, or chilled, stirred into yogurt or other desired dish.

This will keep in the refrigerator for up to a week, and in the freezer for two months.
