Ingredients:

  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest, plus more for garnish
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • Sprig of mint, for garnish

Directions:

Begin by making the blueberry jam. Place the blueberries in a small sauce pan with the two tablespoons of water. Heat the blueberries over medium-high heat until bubbly. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook the berries for another 5 minutes, or until the blueberries have all burst open and are soft. Place the blueberry jam in a bowl and let it cool completely in the refrigerator.

Next, make the honeyed Greek yogurt. Add the Grek yogurt to a mixing bowl and add the lemon zest and honey. Mix everything together to combine. Scoop 1/2 cup of the yogurt mixture into a glass or a small bowl and place in the refrigerator with the blueberry jam.

Once the blueberry jam has cooled, scoop 1/4 cup of the jam on top of the yogurt and garnish with lemon zest and a sprig of mint. Serve immediately.

Enjoy!
