This strawberry sauce comes together so easily and quickly and takes just a few ingredients. So much better than store bought. Goes great on so many things and even just by the spoonful!
- 3 c. strawberries, finely chopped
- ½ c. sugar
- 1 T. lemon juice
- 1 tsp. vanilla
Combine the strawberries, lemon juice and 2 tablespoons of water in a small saucepan. Turn on the stove to medium and cook for about 10 minutes, or until the strawberries begin to break down. Be sure to stir occasionally. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla. Serve immediately or allow to cool first. Can be stored in your refrigerator for up to 4 days. You can cut up some more fresh strawberries and add them to your sauce right before serving for even more strawberry flavor.
Serves 6 with each serving having about 45 carbs.
