Cheesecake with Fresh Strawberry Sauce Recipe - Dairy - MyRecipes.com This looks good I was going to mention lemon juice but they have it in this recipe dont be afraid to add more sugar and add a drop or two of red food coloring if needed.So for me a wow factor would be to garnich with ground or a really strong sugar cinnamon.

A fresh sprig of mint is a nice garnish for color if you have it.

This is one I use from time to time:

Dessert Strawberry Sauce

2 cups of strawberries
1/2 cup plain yoghurt
1/2 cup sugar (or 1/4 cup honey, if preferred)
1/2 cup dry red wine

Blend all ingredients together in blender. Chill overnight.

This was originally entitled "Scrumptious Strawberry Soup" on a disk of Asian recipes that came with my first computer way back in the 80's. In that version, a cup of strawberry halves is used as garnish for the soup over four plates. The general concensus of that recipe though was it was just too much (flavour, richness, volume, etc) for a dish on its own, hence the relabelling. We found that it was best served over icecream or over a delicate piece of plain sponge.

Just politely wondering why you would want to cover a cream based filled crepe with something else with cream or yogurt in it?

Don't know about with cream but the yoghurt thins right down with the red wine and the juice from the strawberries, so it is still rather runny. It doesn't come over like a yoghurt.

LOL. ok so i made this stuff but kinda not. I added strawberry jam to the strawberries and i also added whipping cream. No wine then added more strawberries. i crushed the first pack and i sliced the second pack of berries in half. turned out pretty good. every body loved em.
