But since we only have fresh strawberries once a year, we “sacrificed.” However, the more I’ve learned about healthier alternatives to conventional sweeteners, the more I’ve realized that with just a few minor tweaks I can convert old favorite recipes into treats that come with much less guilt–not to mention less detriment to my family’s health!
