Instructions

IMG_6709Combine the blueberries, sugar and balsamic vinegar in a medium sauce pan.
IMG_6710Zest the lime directly into the mixture.
IMG_6711Cut the lime into half and squeeze the lime juice into the mixture.

Allow to cool.

You should have about 1 cup of thick, jammy sauce.

IMG_6749Spoon 1/4 cup thick yogurt into the bottom of each of 4 tumblers or parfait glasses.
IMG_6750Top with 2 tablespoons of the blueberry sauce.
IMG_6751Top with another layer of yogurt and follow with blueberry sauce.

Cover tightly and chill for at least 1 hour.
