I know for many people they will not consider this to be low carb but it is for me. My sister, mother and I went in together and bought dehydrated strawberries from Honeyville.com a couple of weeks ago. These are wonderful little treats that can easily be rehydrated and enjoyed in recipes. I made a strawberry sauce to go over french toast and it was very light and low carb. I hope that you enjoy it.
The bread that I use is low carb. In our area we are blessed enough to have both Heiner’s 35 wheat bread and Kroger’s low carb yogurt. I am so grateful to have both of these items handy at all times. There is a Sara Lee bread that I like to use that is available in VA when I am visiting my daughter.
I really enjoyed this strawberry sauce and I can see where it would be very good over low carb ice cream. 🙂
The strawberry sauce is enough for 4 servings with each person getting 2 slices of Heiner’s 35 wheat bread made into french toast. I will be providing both recipes here.
- 1/2 cup dehydrated strawberries or 1/2 cup fresh strawberries, sliced
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup Splenda
If you are using the dehydrated strawberries place them in the water in the saucepan for about 20 minutes prior to cooking. Add Splenda and bring to a boil stirring often. Remove from heat and allow it to cool slightly. Place into your blender or Ninja and pulse until well mixed. Sit aside. Makes 4 servings.
