This is the one. The best recipe in my collection—and the most versatile. You can put this Triple Berry Sauce on anything! I’m serious, if you follow any of my social media channels, you will see (and understand) that I am truly addicted to this stuff. When I tell you this is always in my refrigerator, I’m not even kidding. I use this stuff on ice cream, on cakes, brownies, my Cherry Chocolate Chip bread, fruit, yogurt, cottage cheese, pudding, mixed with a dollop of fat-free cool whip, PB&J, and honestly, who am I kidding, I eat it right out of the jar. Are you getting a clear picture? AND I haven’t even started on what this does for smoothies and dare I say margaritas?! I’m telling you, if you don’t make this for your next dessert, you will be so very sad.

I developed this recipe quite by accident. I was trying to make a blueberry sauce for a lemon blueberry loaf by Drizzle Me Skinny. I was making it for a small dinner at a friend’s house (mainly because I wanted to enjoy a dessert that was in my point range). I didn’t have enough fresh blueberries, but I did have some fresh strawberries and a bag of frozen berries that included strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries. Now,  my philosophy has always been, use what you have, that’s what I did; the result was nothing short of amazingly delicious and I think that was the precise moment I dubbed myself a culinary genius.

This deliciously sweet versatile sauce is everything you would want in a sauce, but is it really a sauce or is it a jam or a compote?? Who cares! It’s delicious, it’s saucy, enough to be used as a syrup, but stiff enough to stand up to a PB&J, and give jelly a run for its position in the classic PB&J sandwich. It is the perfect fruit on the bottom yogurt companion and adds a delicious dessert-like twist to cottage cheese. I really could go on and on, because when I tell you I’m addicted to this, I really mean it. I use it every. single. day. Now let’s get to the use what you have part. I will only say this once, or twice maybe, so listen up. You can make this with any berries (or fruit) you happen to have on hand, or cherries, or mango, or peaches, or pineapple…are you getting it? I like a mix, and I always add at least one berry species. My favorite mix is cherries, blueberries, and strawberries. Usually, when I throw in other fruit, it already has three berries in it. So it really becomes a Triple Berry Cherry or Triple Berry Peach sauce or just a fruit sauce. I think you understand what I’m trying to say though, this is a recipe you can make your own—and don’t be afraid to get creative.

There are several things you should know about this recipe:

  • I use Swerve Brown Sugar Replacement (affiliate link) exclusively in this recipe. I used to use a mix of Swerve granulated and Swerve Brown, but I prefer it with brown sugar. BUT any sweetener you choose will work. If you prefer to use real sugar it would work perfectly well, however, it will affect the nutritional values listed in this recipe.
  • Use whatever fruit and berry combination you have on hand, I promise you it will be delicious. Ok, maybe not bananas…oh, but you could use the sauce over top of bananas that are on top of frozen fat-free cool whip.
  • When you cook this the fruit will condense to about half of its original volume. You can use the spoon or a masher for a smoother consistency.
  • You can serve this over stuff WARM; highly recommend!!
  • There are endless variations on optional flavoring. It’s perfect as it is, but for a more complex and fancy flavor try one of these:
    • a pinch to a 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon (before cooking)
    • a few slices of fresh habanero or jalapeno (before cooking and then removed)
    • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp vanilla extract (after cooking)
    • fresh mint leaves (after cooking)

Now go to your kitchen and forage some berries to make this sauce! You won’t be sorry!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups mixed berries fresh or frozen (I use a mix)
  • 2 tbsp Swerve™ Brown Sugar Replacement
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar substitute (I use Swerve)

  • 1 tbsp water

Instructions

  • Combine the berries, sugar, and water in a small pan, over low-medium heat, dissolve the sugar into the mixture.
  • Bring the mixture to boil - stirring occasionally until you can no longer stir it down. (about 15-20 minutes)

Notes

You can use any berries you like. A mix of fresh and frozen works well too. You can also substitute orange juice and orange zest for lemon.

    Do you like to lick the bowl? You will be doing that with this recipe. The Triple Berry Sauce is SUPER easy to make and is fantastic by just following the recipe. I have added it to plain yogurt and it is even better than store bought flavored yogurt. I am going to make another batch with mix berries and cherries! Thank you for the great recipe.

It's FriYAY-Weigh!

I'm down .2lbs this week for a total of 6 lbs this month. 

I caught myself grumbling when I stepped off the scale. I had to remind myself that I'm not in a race, and there's no deadline or expiration date for taking better care of myself.

I turned my frown upside down, stopped grumbling and started gratitude-ing! And you know what I learned?

Gratitude is the cure for disappointment!!!

I've come a long way in three years and I am so grateful for the opportunity to share my journey with you! 

What are you grateful for today?

Happy FriYAY-WEIGH! 

The last two weeks have definitely challenged my resolve. But I refused to allow my emotions and/or circumstances control my choices. 

AND accountability has been key in helping me in that area. I know that for some of you tracking is a dirty word, but it's been my secret to success all along.

Since I started holding myself accountable again (ie. tracking) I've lost 5.8 lbs.

I make better choices when I'm accountable.
I'm more consistent when I'm accountable.
I'm more disciplined when I'm accountable.
I'm more mindful when I'm accountable.
I'm more focused when I'm accountable.
I'm more empowered when I'm accountable.

Accountability is POWER!

How do you hold yourself accountable?

Happy Fri-Weigh!!! 

It feels good to be consistent again. I have a clear understanding of what works for me--and what doesn't. But as I always say, knowing isn't doing. 

The lesson I learned in 2022 was to stay in my own lane.

So here's to more of the doing!

Have a great day!

It's fair to say that I spent a good part of 2022 in a funk that spiraled into a complete state of stuck-ness. I felt completely out of alignment.

Stuck-ness was my norm for roughly 30 years, so I know the state all too well--consistently allowing my life circumstances to control my emotions and daily choices tends to put me in a perpetual state of doubt, that leads to paralysis. It's a real growth stunter!!!!

In 2020 I made the decision not to live like that anymore, and I stand by it. I may have lost a little ground last year, but I'm done beating myself up and hiding. 

My plan is simple. You might even call it basic...😆

I'm going back to the basics.

Because they work.

💥Consistency
💥Discipline
💥Self Love
💥Accountability 
💥Patience

It's a new year, and yep, still the same me. But I'm showing up with a renewed commitment in all the areas I got stuck last year (which was kind of all of them) and this time I'm coming armed with enough love and grace to push me through to the finish line.

New year. New you. Yep, diet season has arrived...

Can we PLEASE not fall for that this year? Because the truth is, if you're not loving the old you, you're definitely not ready to love the new you either.

How about we normalize loving ourselves better instead of trying to change all that we think is wrong with us.

It is a new day--and a new year. And I'm living proof that change is possible. But it does not start with a diet. It starts with loving yourself where you are right now.

So instead of vowing to change all that is wrong, commit to loving yourself through every season of the transformation you're seeking--including where you are today.

Happy New Year!

My weight struggles have spanned the past three decades of my life. 

I often find myself wondering what I could have accomplished if I hadn't waited so long. It's a painful thought, and left unchecked, it can turn into a death spiral of negative self-talk.

Instead, in those moments, what if we choose gratitude? If you opened your eyes this morning, you have another shot at it! Every choice you make is a chance to change your trajectory. Now if that's not something to be grateful for every day...I don't know what is!

I think CS Lewis said it best, "you can't go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending."

So get out there today, and start rewriting your ending!
