Low sugar, low cal, so easy! I make it for Whole Wheat Pancakes, see here: Serves 4 This calls for frozen strawberries. I slice fresh and then freeze them anyways, but fresh would be fine, just allow more time. Freeing breaks the cell walls and makes them mushier.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put all ingredients in a small sauce pan on Med-High Heat.
  2. Stir whenever you feel like it.
  3. Reduce until desired thickness (about 8min).
  4. Note: Strawberries will start to look really pale and sad after they thaw, but don't worry they will get dark red again!

Really enjoyed this topping on pancakes I'd made, & since I almost always have frozen strawberries around . . . Worked like a chard & easy to make, too! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this Spring's Pick A Chef event]
