Ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need to make this blueberry toast recipe:

  • Dairy free plain unsweetened yogurt – I love the Cocojune brand.
  • Fresh blueberries – for the homemade blueberry compote. This recipe is best if using fresh blueberries during blueberry season. Otherwise, you can also use frozen blueberries.
  • Maple syrup – lightly sweetens the quick blueberry compote.
  • Lemon zest and lemon juice. 
  • Bread slices – use whatever your favorite bread is.

How to Make Blueberry Toast: Step By Step

Here are some quick visual instructions. The full instructions and ingredient list will be in the printable recipe card below!

1. Make the blueberry sauce. Combine blueberries, maple syrup, and a squeeze of lemon juice in a small saucepan over medium heat.

2. Cook to thicken. Once the blueberry mixture comes to a simmer, reduce to medium-low heat and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until the compote has thickened and easily coats the back of a spoon.

3. Assemble toast. Smear yogurt on top of the toasted bread slices followed by spoonfuls of the syrupy blueberries and a sprinkle of lemon zest over the top.

Top Tip

If blueberries are out of season, you can use frozen blueberries. They’ll take a little longer to cook down because they contain more water, so cook them for a few extra minutes.

Quick Tip: If you want the toast a little sweeter, I recommend adding a drizzle of honey over the top of the toast.

Make It Your Way: Substitutions & Variations

Please remember that recipes are just a starting point.

How can you make this blueberry toast using what you already have? Here are some ideas…

  • No yogurt? – you can also use any creamy spread such as dairy free cream cheese, or peanut butter or seed butter for a fresh spin on a PB&J.
  • Not dairy free? – use Greek yogurt, a thin layer of goat cheese, cream cheese, or even cottage cheese.
  • Add-ins – hemp seeds or chia seeds for healthy fats and to make it more satiating, or make my 10 minute blueberry chia jam instead.

Variations

Storage

Store the compote in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 10 days. Assemble the toast right before serving.
