Strawberries are delicious! There’s something about strawberries that gives them the perfect balance of sweet and tart. This strawberry sauce captures that essence perfectly! It reminds me of the peanut butter and strawberry jelly sandwiches I would make for myself when I would come home from school… ahhh, the good old days.
Why is it Healthy?
It comes down to only 2 ingredients: strawberries and honey. The honey is optional because, depending on your strawberries, the strawberry sauce may be sweet enough on its own. You can even use frozen strawberries! How simple is that?! (Not to mention organic frozen strawberries are less expensive than fresh strawberries.)
- Spread it on toast
- Swirl it into yogurt
- Top your paleo pancake
- Use as pie filling
- Replace the “jelly” in any recipe
Strawberry SaucePrint This
- Frozen organic strawberries, sliced or whole (you could also use fresh strawberries, but frozen is cheap and easy!)
- Honey, to taste (if your strawberry sauce is too tart, add a teaspoon of honey or maple syrup at a time until it reaches your desired sweetness)
- Heat frozen (or fresh) strawberries in a small pot over medium-high heat. Allow them to reduce to a liquidy sauce, but don’t add any liquid! (It takes about 5 minutes.)
- After the berries become naturally liquidy, reduce the heat to medium low. Cook the berries until the juice becomes less watery. You’ll know when it’s done when it has a consistency similar to maple syrup.
- Taste, then add honey or syrup if needed. Enjoy!
You can make a big batch, or just a small serving. You can store the sauce in a jar in the fridge for 1 week.
