I love using Agave Nectar on fruit. It is similar to honey, yet is mostly flavorless. It is a natural sweetener that enhances the flavor of the fruit. Here is a fantastic recipe for fruit salad using agave nectar. You can substitute for any kind of fruit you prefer. I love adding kiwi and blueberries for a pop of color.
¼ cup agave nectar
2 T lemon juice
1 cup blueberries
1 cup sliced strawberries
1 cup raspberries
3 mini bananas
1. Bring agave nectar and 1/2 cup water to a boil in saucepan. Simmer 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice. Steep 15 minutes.
2. Cut up fruit and combine fruit in large bowl. Stir in agave nectar syrup. Cover and chill 2 hours, or overnight.
You can cut the strawberries in the shape of a heart for special occasions like Valentine’s Day. 😉
