I love Greek yogurt ice cream with Strawberry Sauce. On a recent shopping trip at the grocery store, I grabbed a tub of vanilla Greek yogurt ice cream and waited patiently until dinner was over to try a scoop. I didn’t like it, how devastating!
Greek yogurt naturally boosts metabolism and anything that boosts metabolism is a plus in my book. I decided I would not give up. I would find a way to make it delicious and I did! This goes well on ice cream, waffles, pancakes, yogurt, pound cake, cheese cake, is also a perfect strawberry sauce for angel food cake. There are no preservatives or chemicals, just all natural strawberry goodness.
One note, don’t freak out because I add REAL sugar. Sugar is natural and your body knows how to process it, so do not grab the fake sugar and add that instead. A tablespoon of powdered sugar has only 31 calories…you burn that just scooping the ice cream!
Makes 2 cups Strawberry Sauce.
- 3 cups fresh or frozen Strawberries
- 4 tbsp Powdered Sugar
- 2 tsp Lemon Juice
If you are using frozen strawberries (I did, no shame in that) pop them in the microwave for 30 seconds, if they are soft take them out (if not give them another 30 seconds) and place in a blender or food processor. Add the sugar and the lemon juice and blend until smooth add a tbsp water if needed, place in jar and top ice cream, yogurt, pound cake, cheese cake, waffles or pancakes and dig in.
