The natural sugars in this strawberry sweetener are perfect for giving your cakes, pastries or desserts a whole new dimension. Use it as a garnish or a sauce for plain cakes and gelatos, or instead of syrup on pancakes and French Toast. Ditch the soda and try stirring this into water to add flavor, or mix it into your cake or pancake batters and, of course, into your smoothies. It’s a healthier way to add a little sweetness to your life.
- In a small pot over low heat, cook the strawberries and orange juice together.
- Allow the strawberries to reduce and the mixture to simmer over low heat for about 10-15 minutes.
- Continue to reduce to 1/4 cup.
- Strain and reserve juice to be used as a sweetener.
