How this healthy strawberry sauce fits into my lifestyle
I love ice cream, especially with delicious toppings on it. Since we’re getting into warmer weather, I’m full on pining for ice cream. Like all the time. I’ve tried a few store bought fruit sauces, and they are always too sweet and/or artificial tasting to me. When I go with ice cream, I fully expect it to be delicious.
Instead of running to the store for a premade sauce, I’ve decided to make my own. I will probably continue doing this forever because this sauce is super fresh and delicious, and it’s really too easy to not. Just hull the strawberries, add a squeeze of lemon juice and a pinch of salt to bring out the natural strawberry flavors.
I especially love this sauce because there’s no undetectable added sugar here, just pure strawberry goodness. I’m in no way against adding sugar to foods, but I don’t like foods that have undetectable added sugar. I want to taste the sweetness and for that to actually enhance the flavors.
How it’ll make your life easier
If you’re like me, and want added sweetness that you can actually taste, you’ll love this recipe. Especially the versatility of it, if you’d love to add some extra sweetness, go for it! This recipe is a great one to use up extra strawberries, or strawberries that are about to go bad. The riper they are, the sweeter they’ll be and the sweeter your sauce will be. So if you’re like me and hate throwing food away, this is your too-soft strawberry solution.
