What’s for Brrrrrr-eakfast? Warm Ginger Cardamom Compote

I created this recipe early one morning when the crisp fall air had me ready for something warm in my belly. I didn’t want oatmeal — though I could have added this to the top and it would have been delicious. I’ve been doing my full three servings of fruit first thing in the morning (30 minutes after my lemon water) and I really enjoy having a warm version. When it’s cooler out, I will sometimes add a chia pudding (again you could make a warm version) and use this as a topping. Enjoy!
