really wanted something "sweet" on my oatmeal protein pancakes, but couldn't do
any type of sugar (honey, maple, etc). But... I realized that since I was eating
these post workout (heavy workout), I could do fruit (after a heavy workout,
your body needs a hit of simple sugars to help restore glycogen reserves). So I
tossed some fruit in a sauce pan and away I went!
● Fresh fruit of choice (I've done this with 1 cup of blackberries, and another day with a 4.4 oz container of blueberries)
● 2 Tbsp water
● 1/2 to 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
● Mix all ingredients in a small sauce pan over med-high heat until bubbly.
● Reduce to low & simmer, stirring often to break down the fruit.
● Cook until it's reduced to a syrup consistency.
Nutrition Info: This is for the Blueberry version... I'm not sure if the nutrition data changes once you cook down the fruit, but here's the data.
Blueberry - 1 cup blueberries plus 1 tsp vanilla and 2 Tbsp water. Bring to boil, then reduce and simmer, stirring often.
Blackberry - 1 cup blackberries plus 1 tsp vanilla and 2 Tbsp water. Bring to boil, then reduce and simmer, stirring often.
Strawberry-Banana - 3 medium strawberries, diced, plus 1 small banana, sliced. Add 1 tsp vanilla & 2 Tbsp water. Bring to boil, then reduce and simmer, stirring often.
