Ingredients
  • 1 cup merlot wine
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup dried black mission figs, halved lengthwise
  • 1/4 cup dried cherries
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 1/3 cups fat-free vanilla frozen yogurt
Directions

Whisk the merlot, honey, and vanilla extract in a small saucepan until combined. Add the figs, cherries, and cinnamon stick. Bring to a simmer, partially cover, and cook until the fruit plumps, about 20 minutes. Remove from the heat, cover, and set aside to steep, at least 10 minutes and up to 2 hours.

Divide the frozen yogurt among 4 bowls (1/3 cup each) and top with warm or room temperature compote. Serve.
