Easy Caramel Strawberries

Summer is strawberry time, and the sweet little berries are so rich and red and luscious.

This recipe has only two ingredients and makes a gentle caramel sauce to coat your berries for a decadent snack.


  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 1 Tbsp coconut sugar


Gently wash and slice your strawberries. If they are very small, you can just cut them in half.

Sprinkle the coconut sugar over top of the strawberries and give them a gentle mix with a spoon.

Let the strawberries sit in the fridge for 10 minutes (or up to an hour) to form the sauce, then mix again gently and enjoy as a cool, sweet early summer treat.


Today’s wisdom comes from the Tiny Buddha Instagram account:

“If you focus on the hurt,

you will continue to suffer.

If you focus on the lesson,

you will continue to grow.”

I hope you enjoy your berries and all the lessons life has to offer you!
