There is nothing like simple and homemade recipes, and we cannot forget the compote that has always been made at home. The one we make most often is apple or apple and banana, but taking advantage of the strawberry season I encourage you to enjoy this delicious and easy recipe for apple and strawberry compote . A delight!

As you know, the compote does not require added sugar, because it is sweetened with the fruit's own sugar.

In a moment you have it on the fire and you can let it cook while you cook other things.

Refreshing and healthy, you can enjoy it as is by the spoonful, or it is perfect to put as a base for a yogurt or as an addition on top. The combination is perfect!

It is undoubtedly one of my children's favorite compotes, with a touch of cinnamon for them is a plus .
