- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
- 1/4 cup arrow root starch/flour
- 1/4 tsp monk fruit sweetener
- 1 Tablespoon butter
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 2 cups fresh sliced strawberries
- 1 cup fresh blueberries
- 1.5 cups fresh raspberries
- 1 cup fresh blackberries (if blackberries are not sweet, sub with combo of any of the other berries)
- 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
Option: Substitute frozen berries. Approximately 2 and a half 16 oz bags of frozen mixed berries. (about 5 1/2 cups) Allow berries to completely defrost, then drain most of the excess liquid in a colander. They just need to be mostly drained, but little liquid is fine.
In a large saucepan over medium heat combine your maple syrup, arrow root starch, monk fruit sweetener. Add the butter, berries, lemon juice and cinnamon and stir to mix well and coat the berries completely with mixture. Allow to come to a boil then reduce heat to low and cover with a lid, stirring frequently until your sauce has thickened and your berries have softened and cooked through. Remove the filling from stove top and pour into the prepared pie crust. Allow to cool completely It usually takes 5-6 hours for it to fully set.
