Hot Berry Sauce

This recipe happened on accident while I was trying to get my picky 3 year old to eat blueberries.  But it turned out really yummy and even healthy!  And the best part is my kids eat it!!!  It's so yummy on pancakes.  You can add a little whipped cream on top but it's definitely super tasty on it's own.  Pour it over ice cream, too.

Hot Berry Sauce
1 cup frozen (or fresh) strawberries
1 cup mixed berries (any berries-blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, etc)
3 tbsp lemon juice
2 packets truvia, spenda or just 2 tsp of sugar

Place in a small sauce pan and cook it on medium-medium high until the berries are very mushy, hot and cooked.  Puree in the pan with a hand mixer or my favorite-a hand food processor.  See picture below.  Or just mash away with a fork or potato masher.  Pour small amounts (it's sweet and a little goes a LONG way) on pancakes, french toast, waffles or pour over cold vanilla ice cream.  YUM!!!!!!
