This is a quick and easy way to use overripe strawberries. They just cannot be thrown away… ever! Perfect for paleo pancakes, waffles, french toast, chia puddings… whatever you fancy.
I had a punnet of strawberries that I kinda forgot about … It can happen! They were deliciously sweet and ripe and I knew I had to use them all up or else I’d have to throw them out – and this we can’t do! So sauce it would be.
Since today is my meal prep day, I also happened to have dates soaking in water (to make date late later) so I decided to add just a smidgen of the date-water to the blender with the chopped strawberries but you could just go without. I also had chia seeds soaking too so I knew I’d be in for a treat with some strawberry chia pudding later too 😉 (Recipe will be posted too.)
Back to the sauce. It’s so simple and is a no-mess, no fuss, instantly gratifying recipe that takes about 3-5 minutes to make. And with only one ingredient (or two if you’re adding the date infused water), well, it doesn’t get much easier!
