Recipe Notes

  • Try and buy organic berries, they are on the dirty dozen as one of the most highly sprayed fruits. And of course buy in season.
  • Freeze Sauce in ice cube trays and pop a few out to add to smoothies.
  • Serve sauce with pancakes and or ice cream. Stir through coconut yogurt, or serve a dollop on muesli.
  • The sauce will keep in the fridge for about a week.
