I developed this recipe out a the desire to ramp of the taste of my KETO pancakes. Instead of drowning the pancakes with calorie laden maple syrup, I opted for a sugar free and much healthier option: fresh berry sauce. This recipe can be whipped up in just a few minutes making it perfect for breakfast. But- it keeps well in the fridge for days. You can use to top:
As a base for a strawberry daiquiri
As a low calorie substitute for jam
You only need four ingredients: water, strawberries, granular stevia and orange zest. Cook everything up in a saucepan, process until smooth in a blender and serve. It is fantastic served warm or cold. Strawberries are plentiful in Florida right now, so grab some at the store today and whip up this strawberry sauce and enjoy all weekend.
