Don’t waste your money on storebought syrups or sauces that are filled with unnecessary “stuff”. All you need is frozen or fresh berries, lemon juice, and sugar. The best part — this sauce is ready to eat from start to finish in just 10 Minutes! And you get to control the sweetness. Double or triple the recipe for larger crowds and refrigerate or freeze leftovers.


  • 5 1/2 ounces (1 scant cup of frozen or fresh mixed berries) (150g)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar, or more to taste (26g)
  • 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice, or more to taste (8g)


  1. Measure the fruit + sugar + lemon juice. In a small heavy-bottomed pot, add the fruit, sugar, and lemon juice. 
  2. Cook the sauce. Heat the mixture to a boil and cook stirring frequently for 10 minutes, or until the sauce coats the back of a spoon. Serve the sauce hot, at room temperature, or even cold, and Enjoy!  


  • Refrigerate or freeze leftovers and thaw in the fridge overnight before using.
  • Use a single type of berry if you don’t want to use mixed berries. Blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries are all great options for single berry sauces.
  • If you want a seed-free smooth and silky sauce, pass the finished sauce through a fine-mesh sieve pressing on the mixture with a rubber spatula, ladle, or the back of a spoon. Discard the seeds.
