Strawberry topping for cheesecake using frozen strawberries
Can I use frozen strawberries for this sugar free strawberry sauce?
Yes! In fact, for recipes where the strawberries are cooked, I prefer frozen strawberries instead of fresh. This is because frozen strawberries are actually healthier than fresh, if you can believe it!
Frozen strawberries are flash frozen right from the field, so they don’t need a bunch of unhealthy preservative sprays to keep them fresh-looking.
Add the strawberries, sweetener, lemon juice, and water to a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil while stirring occasionally. The strawberries will begin to release their juices--this is normal and makes the sauce!
Reduce the heat to a simmer. After the strawberries have released their juices a little, sprinkle the xanthan gum on top of the sauce and stir in. Do not just dump the xanthan gum, or it will clump.
Simmer for about 10 minutes (or longer if you prefer thicker sauce). Stir occasionally.
Remove from heat and enjoy on top of cheesecake, pancakes, or ice cream! Save any leftover sauce in a sealed container the refrigerator for up to one week.
Sugar free strawberry topping will thicken in the refrigerator.
