Ingredients

1/4 cup sugar, divided
2 teaspoons orange juice
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup California walnut halves
1/4 cup blueberry preserves
2-1/4 cup fresh blueberries, divided
2 cups frozen vanilla yogurt (low-fat or fat free)

Instructions

  1. To make glazed walnuts, preheat oven to 350F. Spray rimmed cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray. In a small bowl, combine 2 tablespoons sugar with orange juice and cinnamon. Add walnuts; stir until well coated. Spread on prepared baking sheet. Bake until just toasted and aromatic, about 8 minutes. Remove from oven; sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons sugar; stir until evenly coated. Cool to room temperature.
  2. To make blueberry compote, in 1-quart glass measuring cup or microwavable bowl, microwave preserves on high power just until melted, about 20 seconds. Fold in 2 cups blueberries and microwave until berries just start to pop, 30 to 60 seconds. Stir gently and cool to room temperature.
  3. To serve, divide blueberry compote among 4 dessert dishes. Scoop frozen yogurt onto compote. Top with glazed walnuts; garnish with remaining 1/4 cup fresh blueberries. Serve immediately.
