There’s nothing like a good ice cream sundae, and with a beautiful weekend of sunshine, Lots of supermarket sauces have lots of sugar and not a lot of berries so I made this delicious berry sauce to go on top of a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. I used just a touch of honey to sweeten this and chia seeds to thicken it. They absorb liquid and become soft and gel like and add some omega 3 and fibre to the sauce.
Ingredients for 2 serves
- 1/2 cup frozen boysenberries
- 2-3 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon honey
- 2 teaspoons chia seeds
Place the ingredients in a pot and heat over a medium heat. Stir regularly and break up the boysenberries with a wooden spoon. Once the berries have defrosted and the sauce has thickened slightly, spoon over the top of a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
You could also serve this sauce on top of frozen yoghurt. This recipe for berry frozen yoghurt is nice.
Enjoy in the sunshine! Nicola, Eat Well NZ
