**Note -it is best if the cheesecake is completely chilled and the strawberry sauce is warm.

Using Walden farms Strawberry jelly, in place of Walden farms strawberry sauce.

If you are not able to get the Walden farms strawberry sauce, you can use the Walden farms strawberry fruit spread.

It is really more like a jelly consistency than a spread. I have used it and find that if you heat it up, it will soften. If needed add a teaspoon of water while heating. Whisk the sauce and use it on top of your low-carb strawberry cheesecake squares.

Substituting the Strawberries for other berries

For this recipe, you can substitute the strawberries with Blueberries or raspberries.

Walden farms make a blueberry fruit spread and a raspberry fruit spread. Both interchange well in this recipe. Use the same amounts of fresh fruit in the recipe. For the sauce, Walden farms make a blueberry sauce that is interchangeable with the strawberry sauce. Use the strawberry sauce if substituting raspberries, or the Walden farms raspberry fruit spread.

Walden Farms does not make a raspberry sauce, and the taste will not be affected.
