Substituting the Strawberries for other berries

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

If you choose to substitute the strawberries for other fruits, such as raspberries or blueberries, always remember to adjust the nutritional value accordingly.

Walden Farms makes 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 makes a blueberry sauce that is interchangeable with the strawberry sauce. Use the strawberry sauce if substituting raspberries, or the Walden Farms raspberry fruit spread.
