Many mornings I love to have berries and yogurt for breakfast. (Check out my Homemade 000 Yogurt.) Frozen berries are available year round and many times they are the most economical choice for my budget. I’ve found that I can great deals on them at Costco – and they usually last me a couple of months! I have been making this simple berry sauce for months – and it literally takes less than two minutes (Drive-Through-Sue for sure)!
First of all I measure out my berries in a microwaveable container – my amount of berries varies depending on what fuel type I want for the morning. (Remember that you can have up to 1 cup of berries and stay in FP mode — with the EXCEPTION of blueberries – only 1/2 cup of those – otherwise you cross into E territory, which is perfectly fine!) After I measure them out, I add sweetener to them. You can use Xylitol or Gentle Sweet, whichever you prefer.

Next, pop the container in the microwave for 1 minute. It breaks down the berries and makes an awesome syrup/sauce! (This could also be done in a sauce pot on the stove, I am sure)
- 1/4 -1/2 cup berries
- 1/2 to 1 Tbl of xylitol (use 1 Tbl of Gentle Sweet)
Combine in a microwaveable container and microwave for 1 minute. Enjoy!
