Fruit Compote with Splenda #Sweetswaps #IC AD

“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for the SPLENDA® Brand. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation. All opinions and reviews are my own.”

Summer is here! I know I am really excited about that. More food, friends, and fun activities. Around here we have been doing things differently. More exercising and smarter food choices. That means I have to find a way to decrease our sugar consumption. SPLENDA®Sweetener helps me to reduce my families sugar intake by swapping out full sugar in recipes for SPLENDA®Sweetener.

This recipie is one that I recently shared with my friends and family. I found this recipe on the SWEET SWAPS™ recipe website. There you will find many more tips and great recipes that aid in living a smarter more balanced lifestyle.

I will be honest, I have never made or tasted fruit compote before. It was an experience for all of us, albeit a great one. I have since made this recipe 4 times.

For this recipe you need lots of fruit. Check out the exact amount at the SWEET SWAPS™ recipe website.

I added water and SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener Granulated to my pan and waited till it began to boil. Did you know that swapping just one cup of sugar with one cup of SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated can save more than 600 calories? As the water boiled I added all my fruit I had chopped to the boiling solution. After the fruit cooked I added layers of fruit compote and yogurt to small cups for each of my guests. This was the easiest recipe I have done myself and it got rave reviews from my guests!

I used these smaller cups to create several single portion servings for the guests.

I then invited  some family friends to take a nice hike and enjoy some nature and afterward the fruit compote with yogurt. I’m not sure who had more fun, me or the kids. We are all a huge fan of nature and being outside. The kids ended up getting in the creek and getting all wet while the adults all enjoyed the exercise and sights. The kids had a blast splashing and playing in the water but gave out on us hiking up the mountain. We ended up carrying 2 very tired cranky toddlers back down the mountain trail.
