Strawberry Sauce

Typically fruit based sauces have a lot of added sugar, and you could make this recipe in a pot over the stove with added sugar/honey/maple syrup (or even erythritol) if you want a sauce that has more of a “caramelized” sweet taste.

We find, however, that strawberries are sweet enough without added sugars/syrups.

This recipe is quick and easy, and a delicious accompaniment to your cheesecake.

Ingredients:

  • 200g Strawberries, with extra chopped strawberries for serving⁣⁣
  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice⁣⁣
  • pinch of salt⁣⁣

Method:

  1. Pop everything into a blender, blend until smooth, add the extra strawberries to the mix and pour over your LCHF cheesecake.⁣⁣
