Add tangy, sweet flavor to your berries with this delicious, low-calorie dessert sauce. It is also delicious drizzled over warmed angel food cake. To make this dairy-free, substitute your preferred nut, seed, or grain milk in place of the cow's milk. Change the flavor profile by changing the extract. Vanilla, almond, orange, or maple extracts would be good bets. Use whatever berries are fresh and in season. Raspberries, blackberries, and even stonefruit like cherries, peaches, or plums would be delicious with this sauce.
