Tastes like the Real Thing: Reduced Sugar Blueberry Sauce

IMG_8865

During blueberry season I have to make at least one batch of  fresh blueberry sauce. I ususally follow Martha Stewart’s recipe which has only 3 ingredients! This year, I made a modification to this recipe with my go to  sugar substitute (Monk Fruit in the Raw)  and no one realized some of the the sugar was MIA. It looks and tastes like… the real thing and …there aint’ nothin like the real thing, right?

IMG_8866IMG_8872Hope you’ll give it a try.  It’s easy to make (takes about 15 minutes from start to finish). Use it as an ice cream topping for a quick summer dessert!  (It’s also good on cheese cake and angel food cake.) Store it in the refrigertor and serve it with breakfast as a topping on oatmeal, waffles or in a yogurt parfait.  You can also add a tablespoon or two to smoothies for a burst of blueberry goodness. Enjoy this summery sauce!
