Quick and Easy Mixed Berry Topping Recipe

As I bit into my waffles with the usual syrup and butter, I've always wandered if there was something else that I could add in its place. Instead of experimenting with different toppings, I decided to just buy the different varieties of waffles that were available at the stores. After I while, I became bored with the usual and decided that I wanted something quick and healthy to add to my waffles or anything else such as cake, cheesecake, pancakes, etc. I discovered this easy recipe and decided that it was time to share this with others who were having the same problem as I was. Take a look below. It doesnt take long to make and its quite delicious. ENJOY!

@teaches12345 thanks for the positive feedback and I agree that fruit toppings are better than syrup toppings.

I always prefer fruits as a topping to my pancakes and waffles. I really do not like the sticky syrup or the fattening butter taste. You have my vote on this thought!

@derdriu, thanks for the positive feedback and the little bit of information about berries. Your compliment is more than welcome and Im happy you enjoyed my recipe.

Derdriu on February 24, 2013:

torrilyn, Blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries: you've convinced me! All but the blueberries grow in the yard. In fact, the strawberries constitute the predominant ground cover.

In the nearby meadows are (invasive) wineberries. But they look and taste great. Wildlife likes them too. They'll be gone in a couple of years, to be replaced by something else: Blueberries and elderberries would be on my wish lists.

Respectfully, and with many thanks for sharing, Derdriu

@kathryn stratford yeah i love fruit on my waffles as well and think that having different ideas for breakfast snacks is very good and will help to keep breakfast time interesting.

I love adding fruit to waffles! I used to make a mango sauce for my waffles years ago, and that was tasty, as well.

It would certainly taste great on pancakes, too!

Thanks for sharing this. Sometimes it's the simple little things that make a meal so much tastier (and healthier).
