This sauce is fantastic! I used Splenda so that that I could use it for Weight Watchers' Core plan. I plan to try it with some cheesecake pudding. I halved the recipe, thinking it would be too much for just me, but I definitely could have made the full amount! Thanks for the recipe! Made for Healthy Choices ABC.
Excellent flavor and so easy to fix. I skipped step #1 and had my sauce done in 5 minutes. Used splenda for the sweetner and 1 teaspoon of cornstarch to thicken up a bit. If you use the cornstarch be sure and add with all the ingredients and stir to dissolve before heating. I used this on top of #248423 Healthy Protein Cheese Cake. This was a match made in heaven for my diet. Thanks ladypit.
Easy peasy, and yummy. I used fresh local blueberries but I think I added a bit too much freshly squeezed organic lemon juice and ours wasn't as sweet as it was meant to be but it was still good. I served this at room temperature overtop of a recipe I intend to post for a lightly chilled lebneh (an Middle Eastern cream cheese) cheese cake which I added close to serving time. It was excellent. I used organic lemon zest and organic cane sugar. I may make this again to go over some vanilla ice cream!
