Fresh Strawberry Sauce (From OBB)

I'm pretty sure you've heard of Sarah and Kate over Our Best Bites.  If you haven't, go check them out!  These girls have added such an amazing element to my cooking life.  They have amazing recipes that anyone can make.  Every time I make something new and delicious my husband's first response is, "Best Bites?", and 99% of the time he's right.


Anyway, I could go on and on, but I might start sounding sappy if I do.  Just know these gals are my GO TO when it comes to cooking!

This recipe is for their fresh strawberry sauce.  I made it a few years ago because I have a ton of strawberries that were going to go bad, and I needed to use them up.  I didn't really know how I'd use the sauce, but I knew it would be good, so I made five or six jars of it (it keeps in the fridge for a week or you can freeze it).  

You can put the sauce on pancakes, waffles, ice cream, but my favorite way to use it is in a fresh strawberry shake.  I have to say this sauce has converted me to the fruity side of shakes.  I didn't think it was possible (wait, LaBeau's fresh raspberry shake did convert me many years ago). I'm still a chocolate, caramel girl at heart when it comes to shakes, but I crave this fresh strawberry one.  And once again, you just need 3 ingredients (see below)!  

Fresh Strawberry Sauce (from Our Best Bites)
Vanilla Ice Cream
Milk

Put all the ingredients in a blender (or my favorite, The Ninja) and blend.  I never measure the amounts of each ingredient I put in my shakes.  I do always start with the sauce and ice cream, then add a little milk at a time until I reach my desired thickness.  
Fresh, creamy, delicious!!

There's a lot of recipes from Our Best Bites that I keep in jars in my fridge or freezer.  Stay tuned for more posts on that.

And, once again I'm in a 3-ingredient groove these days.  Check out these other 3-ingredient recipes.

    1. I keep a good stash in my freezer. We go through it like crazy all summer long, and then it's fun to have some in the fall and winter when it's not strawberry season. Thanks so much for visiting, Theresa! Come back anytime. Enjoy your day!
