I developed this “recipe” (if you can call it that) after suffering a horrible sweet-tooth with no chocolate remaining in the house. Yes, some berries are sweet enough without having to add anything to them, but if you are a sugar-addict, like me, plain berries don’t always hit the proverbial spot. So, because we don’t generally have/use refined sugar in our home or any artificial sweeteners for that matter, I was forced to resort to a high-grade maple syrup that we happened to have leftover in the pantry (from an abandoned Master Cleanse stint), which I poured lightly over my berries. The viscosity of this maple syrup in particular is very thin and light in color, so the effect is not sweetness-overload, but instead highlights the berries’ delicate and juicy notes. Now, this is my favorite go-to snack, which is certainly more practical than staging a coup each time we run out of chocolate.
