I have grown my children up on those tiny Danone Yogurts while I was enjoying the larger tubs of Parmalat Yogurt. I remember my favorite was their new range at the time - Fabulite, fat free, lower calories and fat content. So much has changed in terms of what we consume and is still changing and there is so much information on the internet it's completely overwhelming.

HOW TO MAKE THIS YOGURT BOWL
Fresh Stewed Strawberries
The reason I decided to add the strawberries to as a saucepan and heat them is because I was having memories of stewed fruit and how my mother would always like to stew prunes for us. That was more for medicinal use than it was for dessert though but this morning that's what I was thinking.
I added the strawberries into a saucepan to heat, added a dash of fresh organic juice and a sprinkle of coconut sugar. This was the same as stewed prunes just a healthier version and yes in combination with coconut yogurt, fresh blueberries and some extra toppings, a whole other recipe 🙂
Cooking The Strawberries
The stewed strawberries took minutes to make. In the time that you have added the coconut yogurt to the bowl, decided on what fruit you are going to add, and some other coco nibs, coconut shavings etc and made yourself a cup of coffee the strawberries are ready!
You don't want them over cooked you want them just softened enough to have released flavor and juices. Once they have softened, remove them from the stove and add to the yogurt because if you let them sit in the pot too long you won't get the texture and half enough juice from the stewing process. If they don't have enough juice, simply leave them on the heat for a more seconds with a drop more juice. That's it!
As you can see that you don't need a pot full of fresh strawberries, if you want a small amount make just enough. Less ingredients, less waste.
