Talking about treats today! What is your favorite summer treat?
Mine is ICE CREAM all day, every day… Yes, the kids love it too but today I’m sharing this simple treat only for us!!! … Finally, no kids are allowed! lol. Are you ready to try the best home-made strawberry sauce? Super easy and fast. It is perfect!
Best Home-Made Strawberry Sauce… Ever!!
Father’s Day is this month so, why not start celebrating Them by sharing this fun & sweet adult treat.
Who doesn’t love strawberries! …. We all love strawberries! and since they are in season let’s make this super easy and economical recipe to pair with our favorite ice cream and Voortman cookies.
Not too long ago I found this recipe on a sweet food blog and thought it would come perfectly with some delish scoops of ice cream to celebrate the hubs on Father’s day.
So, here we go:
Homemade Strawberry Margarita Sauce
- 1 lb Fresh Strawberries
- 1 tbsp Lime zest
- 1/4 cup Lime juice
- 1/2 cup White Sugar
- 1/2 ounce Tequila
- Add all ingredients to a small/ medium size sauce pan. Stir to mix. Heat over medium heat and bring to a boil.
- Reduce heat and allow to simmer for about 15 minutes. Strawberries will be tender and the sauce will be slightly thickened. Remove from heat.
- Mash the strawberries to desired consistency. Cover pot and allow the sauce to cool for about 10 minutes.
- Spoon onto dessert or store in refrigerator. Sauce can be poured cold from the fridge or heated up in microwave and poured warm over desserts.
Of course, you can make this sauce kid-friendly as well by just taking the Tequila off your ingredients list.
The sauce is a success at any time of the day. I promise it won’t be too sweet, and I know you may be thinking that because of the Tequila it would have a boost. Well, just a hint; the longer you boil the sauce the faster the alcohol evaporates but it would still keep a tiny bit of boost in.
As I mention, This sauce made I want to pair it with ice cream and with my all time fav. Strawberry Voortman wafers. take a look
