Warm Fruit Compote

If you are bored with a basic fruit cup, try this version, with a twist!

1½ cups organic apple juice

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 tablespoons water

2 tablespoons arrowroot powder

1 banana, peeled and sliced into ½-inch thick slices

1 cup strawberries, green tops removed and cut in half

1 cup blueberries, rinsed with stems removed

1 cup diced golden pineapple

1. Place the apple juice, cinnamon and vanilla into a sauce pot and bring to a boil.

2. In a small bowl, dissolve the water and arrowroot.

3.  When the apple juice comes to a boil, whip in the arrowroot solution to thicken. Lower the flame to simmer and continue to stir. The sauce should be medium to heavy in texture. If need be add more arrowroot.         

4. Stir the fruit (banana, strawberries, blueberries and pineapple) into the hot sauce. Simmer until the fruit is hot.
