We enjoy our waffles with dairy-free butter and warm fruit sauce or maple syrup.

(A delicious summer treat idea: Slather your favorite dairy-free ice cream between 2 cooled waffle slices.)

Fruit Sauce Ingredients

  • 1 10 oz. bag frozen strawberries or mixed berries
  • water, enough to cover the bottom of small saucepan

Heat berries in water, over low heat, until just warm. Stir as needed as the berries thaw. Add a bit more water, if needed.

Sprinkle cinnamon and cut bananas on berry covered waffles.
