Cherry Compote and Vanilla Alpro

Easy and delicious!


  1. 2lbs ripe black cherries
  2. 3 tbsp caster sugar
  3. 1 tsp vanilla extract


Stone and halve the cherries, place in a heavy bottomed pan and stir in the sugar.

Leave for half an hour to let the sugar draw the juices.

Add the vanilla extract and place the pan on a medium heat, stir from time to time.  When the fruit has softened take off the heat and leave to cool before storing in the fridge.

Perfect with plenty of vanilla soya yogurt as a quick pudding, or with chocolate overnight oats as a decadent breakfast.
