How to customize this paleo blueberry compote
You can keep this compote paleo and leave the sweetener out if you want, if the berries are really sweet you don’t really need it. Otherwise, I’ve added some optional add ins that will take this sweetness to the next level and really develop the flavors.
Adding a little bit of vanilla and some orange zest really complements the natural brightness of blueberries. You can customize the sweetness by adding keto-friendly stevia, and achieve your desired thickness by adding gelatin. Check out the notes in the recipe box for measurements.
Blueberries = antioxidants
Antioxidants protect your body from free radicals, unstable molecules that can damage your cells and contribute to disease like cancer. (source)

- Heat over medium heat for 10 minutes bringing to a simmer. Use a whisk to mix and mash the berries until they have released enough liquid to make it look soupy. Simmer this for 10 minutes or until thickened to desired consistency, stir occasionally.
