Enjoy a breakfast treat with our quick, easy and delicious frozen yogurt breakfast sundae with fruit compote.
I really enjoy variety at breakfast, particularly at weekends. While I’m always looking for everything I cook to be as fuss free as it can, sometimes spending a little more time and effort really makes a difference. We’ve enjoyed breakfast muffins, smoothies, pancakes and waffles in the past, and here’s another string to our breakfast bow: the breakfast sundae!
During the week, who has time for a studied, relaxed breakfast? Not me, and I would think that I’m far from alone! And while I do like to spend a bit more time preparing weekend breakfasts, I don’t go mad: I want something tasty, that looks good, that really marks out the weekend as different from the working week, but not so over the top that takes ages in the kitchen. A sundae is perfect for that.
Eating a sundae with ice cream first thing would really be a bit too rich, so I’ve gone for the low fat and lower calorie option of yoomoo frozen yogurt. It’s really tasty, and available in vanilla and strawberry flavours so you can mix and match the sundae according to how you’re feeling. The strawberry flavour is swirled with strawberry sauce, both looks and tastes great. We really love the texture of this fro-yo: light and fluffy. yoomoo is also available as frozen lollies, in mixed berry, strawberry and tropical flavours. Now one of those would really be a breakfast with a difference!
Taking time over breakfast at the weekend is a real treat; an opportunity to reflect on the week, review the week to come and be the best version of myself. I’m not alone in this, the folks at yoomoo are great believers too, even to the extent of calling it yootime. I have to admit that the pun tickles: me time as you/yoo time. Whatever it’s called, taking some time for myself is a bit of self care that really reaps dividends.
How do I make a frozen yogurt breakfast sundae?
First, make the fruit compote. This can be made ahead of time, and will keep in the fridge for a few days.
Defrost the frozen fruit (take out strawberries and they contain too much water and become too mushy).
Heat the defrosted fruit in a saucepan, and add the water. After the mixture has warmed through, spoon off some liquid into a small bowl and add the cornflour.
Mix to a paste, and add back to the compote, stir it in and allow to simmer for a few minutes to thicken a little. Sweeten with maple syrup as required.
In the morning, make the sundaes. Spoon some compote into the bottom of a tall sundae glass, and spoon in some of the granola and your choice of mixed beries
Add the yoomoo frozen yogurt to the glasses, and top with more granola and compote
Garnish with fresh berries add a cocktail umbrella, and enjoy!
Our top cornflour tip
Cornflour is an excellent thickener, but you need to use it right. NEVER just add cornflour to a liquid: it’ll just clump and won’t thicken the sauce.
Rather, spoon of a little sauce into a small bowl or ramekin. Add the cornflour, and mix to a smooth paste.
Add the paste back into your recipe and there you are: a successfully thickened sauce without lumps!
Serve along side my buttery croissants also!Or for a quicker, weekday breakfast, personalize your muesli with my Easy Home Made Muesli.

This looks so good! I have to admit that breakfast are not usually the time for me to actually make anything special but this would be great for weekends.
With having the ingredients ready to go, it is relatively fuss free and easy to prep. Great for the weekend when you have a little more time on your hands.
A breakfast that’s more like dessert is always a winner in my book! Looks fantastic!
You can’t beat a breakfast that makes you feel good about it all.
Helen this is right up my alley in breakfast foods. I love the freshness of this and frozen yogurt breakfast sundae sounds divine to me. I am going to try this soon as I get all the ingredients. Thanks for such a great recipe idea. I especially love the maple syrup addition in these ingredients. Also I can’t seem to rate this recipe can you do it? 5 STARS!
Deliciously refreshing, and so good together.
This is an awesome breakfast idea! And your photos are gorgeous :-) That fruit compote looks so amazing!
I do love fruit compote, always delicious.
What a delicious and refreshing breakfast treat! Love the presentation by the way :)
Thank you. Your weekend breakfast has to look good.
What a brilliant idea for a weekend breakfast. It looks delicious.
Very tasty, Robert.
I could eat this at any time of the day, it looks divine. I love this frozen yogurt from Yoo moo, so so good. Less guilt than ice cream.
The frozen yogurt is really yummy.
The fact that this is almost icecream for breakfast has my approval. Would be lovely on a Sunday morning, sitting in the conservatory in the morning sun.
That sounds like an ideal Sunday breakfast.
I love breakfast sundaes. Love the different layers and complimentary flavours. Using frozen yogurt is something I wouldn’t have considered, and is brilliant.
Lovely and refreshing, Victoria.
These look delightful, Helen. I’d really enjoy these for my breakfast. The added umbrella is the icing on the cake.
I do like making my breakfast pretty too.
Wow, this is just gorgeous!! Definitely what I want for a Friday night dessert. So fancy and fun :)
Good for Friday night dessert too.
Love these Sundaes and will be looking out for this yoo moo frozen yogurt and sounds lush!
Thanks Camilla. they do make a really fun breakfast!
Breakfast for me is usually grabbing something in a hurry and trying to find the time to eat it somewhere along the way. But Sunday’s are the day I do take time to enjoy and relax. My kids love pancake Sunday, but I think they would love sundae Sunday even more! Lovely idea for a relaxing decent breakfast.
Sundae Sunday sounds like a brilliant idea.
What a great idea for an alternative breakfast. Looks almost too good to eat.
A good looking breakfast is all part of the enjoyment.
I have countless requests from my children for inappropriate breakfasts, including crisps and ice cream. I think frozen yogurt just about evens out the argument and could be the compromise I need.
I think you could be on to a winner there, Moira.
I really like yoomoo frozen yogurt. Prefer it to ice-cream, it seems so much lighter and tastes fab. Having it in this sundae is perfect.
We do love Yoomoo, so very refreshing.
What a perfectly perfected and utterly beautiful looking breakfast sundae. Lovely, Helen.
Thank you, Evelyn.
I do like a decent breakfast at the weekend, no boring toast or cereal for me. Am going to give this a try.
Much more exciting than toast and cereal.
Something totally different and I love it. Looks so fresh and colorful. Great idea to use frozen yogurt.
Really refreshing and tasty.
I could see me enjoying this come Sunday morning, our on the patio in my slippers, reading the Sunday papers.
Sounds like an ideal Sunday morning to me.
