I have two delicious fruit forward recipes to share this week for breakfast and dessert. The first is pancakes with a homemade strawberry syrup. The latter is carmel apple martinis that are so amazing it’s hard not to guzzle them down. What are your favorite fruit forward recipes?
1 package of strawberries cut into strips, reserve half for garnish
1 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1 T cornstarch
Heat water and sugar over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Dissolve cornstarch into 1 T water with whisk. Add to mixture whisking briskly. Add strawberries and continue stirring. Allow mixture to boil until thickened. Strain if desired. Pour over pancakes and place use remaining strawberries as garnish.
Now for dessert…
This is probably the most amazing drink I have ever had. Even for people who don’t typically enjoy vodka or sweeter drinks, you will be amazed at how wonderful this treat is. This will forever be apart of my dessert repertoire.
1-2 oz Van Gogh Dutch Carmel Vodka
2-3 oz Knudson’s Organic Apple Juice
Shake ingredients together over ice. Serve immediately and enjoy!!!
To add a little spritz to your Carmel Apple Martini, pour in a splash of ginger ale!
