This compote uses frozen fruit, which is as nutritious as fresh and readily available in winter. The honeyed yogurt offers a sweet balance for the tangy compote, which can be made ahead and refrigerated for up to one week. While Greek yogurt offers a thicker base for the topping, plain low-fat yogurt can be substituted, if desired.
Raspberries add bright color and several good-for-you nutrients like fiber, antioxidants, and vitamin C. Almonds are a good source of vitamin E and monounsaturated fats. Chives, members of the onion family, add phenols and flavonoids.
