  • ½ cup (75 g)
    frozen raspberries
  • ½ cup (75 g)
    frozen blueberries


  1. Stovetop directions: place the frozen fruit in a saucepan on medium heat, stirring occasionally. The fruits will begin to thaw and release their juices. When heated through, remove from the heat.
  2. Microwave directions: in a microwave-safe bowl, heat the frozen fruit at 600W for 1 minute, then stir. Return to the microwave and continue at 30-second increments. If desired, mash with a fork so more juices seep out but some chunks remain. Enjoy!

No point buying fresh berries at this time of year, but love having them in the freezer and adding this to pancakes/porridge/chia pudding/yoghurt to get in tasty berry goodness in winter.

So simple, so berry divine! This was exactly what I was looking for.

FYI, I tried looking for this recipe by looking for berries as an included ingredient and couldn’t find it. I ended up finding it when I googled stewed berries.

Hey Dawn, thanks for pointing this out! We've removed the berries ingredient type and have left different types of berries separate (such as "raspberries" and "blueberries"). If you prefer a general berries ingredient search though do let us know 🤗

Dawn - April 4, 2023, 8:27 p.m.

I think you should keep it as long as it points to recipes that have berries. Since I wasn’t sure which berries I wanted, I was concentrating on generic berries. Which I think a lot of people do. Just my opinion :-)

Dawn - April 4, 2023, 8:28 p.m.

BTW, I think your websites incredible and I love your videos!

PUL Team - April 4, 2023, 8:49 p.m.

Awe thanks Dawn - the kind words and feedback are so appreciated! We've now fixed the berries ingredient filter so it will work if you refresh the website 😃

Love this simple and sweet berry mix on oatmeal. Adds a nice touch.

Myrlinda - Feb. 26, 2023, 3:20 p.m.

So delicious! 😋 I used cacao powder instead of cocoa. I feel supercharged this morning! 🌞😁

Oops... I meant to post this on the page for the Warm Tahini Chocolate Banana Wrap. 🤦🏾‍♀️ I came over here to see how to stew berries and got so excited about breakfast while eating that I just picked up my phone and poster haha. I'll post my comment on that page. 😊

PUL Team - Feb. 28, 2023, 5:56 a.m.

Haha stewed berries and cacao would be an interesting mix! Thank you, Myrlinda 😊

Love that this recipe doesn't add sugar or maple syrup to the fruit. It is perfect on its own! When it's cooled, I used this in my parfaits. so much better than anything store bought <3

PUL Team - Aug. 28, 2022, 7:22 p.m.

Love this one in parfaits as well! Thank you, Kellie 🙂

Linda - Oct. 25, 2021, 12:53 a.m.

Love this on granola

Cindy P - Sept. 17, 2021, 12:23 a.m.

Easy, nutritious and delicious especially with a little wipped cream!

Georgiana - Aug. 8, 2021, 5:53 p.m.

I love these the most with yogurt and granola. 😍

Nada - July 30, 2021, 4:43 p.m.

So simple to make and so versatile. Pairs really well with PUL's yogurt parfait (and with oatmeals of course) - just yum! :)

PUL Team - Aug. 1, 2021, 8:50 a.m.

We appreciate this so much, Nada, and are so glad you're enjoying this one!

Ky - July 24, 2021, 1:35 a.m.

Love making this in the winter! Goes great with pancakes, smoothies, oatmeal, and all kinds of desserts. Also great when berries are too soft to enjoy as a snack.

PUL Team - July 25, 2021, 9:12 p.m.

So thrilled you're enjoying the stewed berries, Ky - love the ideas 😃

May - April 20, 2021, 3:53 a.m.

Made this for me and my housemate today and it worked perfectly. I thought there was more to it but this is nice and simple :)

PUL Team - April 20, 2021, 6:28 a.m.

Indeed, it's much simpler than it seems! Glad you enjoyed it, May 🤗
