Simple, quick, and tasty! I made it healthier by substituting Truvia for the sugar, and because I did not have fresh strawberries on hand (which is rare!) I had to use frozen. What a nice topping for the coconut pineapple light ice cream we have in the freezer!

I thought this tasted pretty good. I made a 1/2 recipe to test it. I probably didn't use quite as much lemon as suggested, just a few squeezes. This was very quick to make and would taste good on just about anything breakfast or dessert. I put it on a homemade belgian waffle from this site with whipped cream and it was great. I am some what partial to the top rated strawberry sauce on here, that has a little less sugar and some added vanilla, but this will definitely get eaten up. Thank you



This is an excellent sauce recipe! I served it with cut-up fresh strawberries over home made pound cake, and the dessert was a total hit! I didn't mash the berries to a fine pulp, but left quite a few chunks. Very yummy!
