Peanut Butter Sauce

Growing up my mom made an amazing peanut butter sauce that she would drizzle over ice cream. Well to say it was amazing is an understatement. However, now that I am looking into healthier options I have created my own version of the delight and put it on our ice cream now. When I saw ice cream, i do not mean the conventional term either. If you have a vita mix, or high powered blender you can make your own version of ice cream with some ice, fruit, vanilla bean, water/milk. Substitutions are key when creating healthy recipes. Just because you are choosing to live healthier does not mean there is less flavor, less fun, or less taste. It is still alll of that and more because your body does not get all the fat and sugar.
Ok, so here is my take on this tasty treat.
Peanut Butter Sauce ( revamped. ;)... )
1 Tablespoon of Agave Nectar
1 teaspoon of Stevia
1 teaspoon of Coconut Oil
Heat in small sauce pain till combined and smooth
Remove from heat and Add: 2-3 Tablespoons of Smart Balance or Organic Peanut Butter
and 2 tablespoons of low fat milk (could be almond milk too)
Stir together till smooth and enjoy over your treat.

Hope you all like it....Share your comments and ideas.
