I love her in Microwave strawberry mug cake and in strawberry, no bake, gluten-free paleo lemon bars or in a cold and refreshing strawberry-coconut popsicle with blueberries.

This healthy jam I'm going to show you today that there is no refined sugar, but it is still sweet because I used honey / agave nectar instead of white granulated sugar! All the sweetness, no sugar!
