  1. Make the blueberry compote: in a saucepan mix together the frozen blueberries, 1 tablespoon of sugar, and 2 tablespoons of lemon juice. Add the water. Bring to a boil over a medium high flame, stir and cover. Cook for 5 minutes then turn off the heat. Leave on the stove covered for 10 minutes. The berries will continue to cook in the pan. Uncover and leave to cool down in the fridge.
  2. Meanwhile in a separate bowl, beat together the yogurt, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and the lemon zest. Set aside to chill.
  3. Mix the strawberries and blueberries together in a bowl. Tip the blueberry compote over them and mix together. Taste for sugar. Let chill in the fridge until you are ready to serve.
  4. To serve: fill an 8oz glass 2/3 full with the fruit mixture. Top with a dollop of the yogurt and sprinkle with toasted almonds. Serve immediately.
