If you have lots of ripe strawberries, then this strawberry sauce recipe is just begging to be made. Naturally sweetened by dates, my strawberry sauce is easy to make and so delicious.
How to Make the Best Strawberry Sauce Recipe
Strawberry Sauce is summer food at its finest and most simplistic. This fresh strawberry sauce recipe only requires just four ingredients (well, five if you count water) and very little hands-on prep time. Plus, it has zero added sugar.
Choose Organic Strawberries
The best produce comes from the best growers. Unless you can find a locally grown organic strawberry field that you can pick yourself, look for organic. Strawberries are on #1 on the Dirty Dozen list by EWG. Which means lots of pesticides and chemicals are typically used to grow these little berries.
