Fruit is nature’s candy. And when you’re dying for something sweet, it’s what your body is really asking you for- so having it for dessert is only logical!
I anticipate cherry season all year, because there is nothing quite like sitting in the sunshine with a bowl of the little red gems to work on. But thanks to freezers, I enjoy this dessert year round. Sweet enough to satisfy a dessert craving, and wholesome enough to have for breakfast.
Makes 2 servings
- 2 cups of sweet cherries, pitted (fresh or frozen)
- 1/3 cup water
- juice of half an orange, plus zest
- 2 tsp coconut oil
- 1.5 tsp butter
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- dash of cloves
- dash of salt
Add all ingredients to a small saucepan. Bring to medium-high heat and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. You know you’re done when the majority of the liquid has been reduced and you are left with a thick sauce. Serve with a dollop of crème fraiche or yogurt, or use to top your morning oatmeal.
Added Bonus: your house will smell amazing for the rest of the evening. Enjoy!
