Inspiration for the stawberry sauce comes from back when I was a kid. My Aunt grew fresh, plump, juicy strawberries in her home in Salinas California by the beach. One morning as my aunt was making pancakes she added a gloriously sweet strawberry sauce on top and I was hooked! So every time I make this sauce I remember my even sweeter aunt Nora.Even better is it is super simple and fun to make! I hope in sharing this y’all enjoy it as much as I do and add a little pizazz to your breakfast or dessert!
First I started with about ten (10) medium to small strawberries that were on the verge of being useless and placed them into a small sauce pan with the top removed. Then I add one (1) cup of frozen stawberries, 1/4 a cup of Stevia (sugar would be fine here too!) and a tablespoon of water. Let the ingredients come to a boil then simmer for about 10 minutes until thick. Take it off the heat to cool for about 5 minutes. Next pour into a blender for a whirl! I usually don’t strain the sauce to add a bit extra texture to the sauce but to elevate the sauce for a more refined guest straining it is the way to go!
This sauce would go great over pancakes, crepes filled with vanilla yogurt and fresh strawberries, or even a piece of cheese cake! This sauce can add a bit of sweet but not too sweet to any dish. Please give it a go and let me know in the comments below how it turned out for you! I would love to hear of your amazing creations!
