how to make raspberry sauce

In keeping with the raspberry theme this week, I thought I’d share my all time favourite raspberry sauce!  As you can see, it’s perfectly paired with ice cream as well as a great topping for pancakes, cheesecake and other desserts.  I think this would also taste great in a smoothie or a milkshake!

Another great thing about this raspberry sauce is that you can use fresh or frozen raspberries.  I used some frozen raspberries that I had picked last year.
