Recipe: Skinny Barbeque Sauce

BBQ Sauce - ingredients

There's nothing that says family cookouts better than a great barbecue, and every great barbecue starts with a delicious sauce. You can easily make this in advance and store in the refrigerator or freezer or even double the recipe to have extra on hand.  If you've never made your own barbecue sauce, we highly recommend trying it for the great taste, high quality, and low calories and sugar compared to supermarket brands.
