Berry Sauce

Serves: 5
Total Calories: 23
Yield: 1 cup


1 cup fresh or frozen unsweetened berries
1/2 cup unsweetened apple juice or apple blend
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/3 to 1/2 teaspoon powdered stevia extract (to taste)
1 tablespoon quick tapioca or arrowroot powder


• Blend the berries, apple juice, and lemon juice together in a blender. To remove the seeds, pass through a fine-mesh strainer. Pour into a saucepan. Whisk in the stevia extract and quick tapioca or arrowroot powder.
• If using tapioca, let the ingredients sit in the pan with no heat for 15 minutes. Cook over medium heat until a full boil is reached. Cook until the tapioca turns clear, and remove from the heat. It will thicken as it cools.
• If using arrowroot powder, heat on low, stirring gently until the sauce is thick. Remove from heat when it reaches the boiling point. It will get thicker as it cools.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS: Serve warmed over pancakes and waffles, or use as an ice cream topping. For a pourable syrup, use a little less thickener. To use as a filling, for crepes or layer cakes, make the sauce a little thicker. It will keep for several weeks in a covered container in the refrigerator.

OPTION: If you prefer a whole berry sauce, eliminate the step of pureeing the fruit in the blender. Just whisk the thickener into the berries and liquid.
