I absolutely love berry season! There’s just nothing like the taste of fresh picked berries! I have loads of them growing in my garden, and what better way to enjoy them than this simple berry sauce.

Berries are also loaded with health properties. High in fiber, and antioxidants, they are a food product you’ll want to make a part of your daily diet.

This sauce is absolutely scrumptious! It’s a tasty and healthy alternative to maple syrup for our weekend pancakes or waffles.

And it’s heavenly spooned over my homemade vanilla ice cream!

What do I need to make this berry sauce?

This berry sauce couldn’t be easier. It’s made from just 4 simple ingredients:

  • Berries – blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, raspberries, marionberries, or any combination of them. Fresh or frozen berries can be used.
  • Sugar – I used organic sugar in my sauce. Alternatively, you could use maple syrup, coconut sugar, or agave nectar
  • Cornstarch – to thicken the sauce. If you are sensitive to corn, you can use arrowroot powder
  • Water

How to make this sauce

Place the berries, 1/4 cup of water, and the sugar in a saucepan and bring to a boil. You can mash some of the berries, if you desire.

In a small cup, mix together the corn starch and the remaining water. Pour this into the pot of berries, and stir until the mixture is thickened.

How can I use this berry sauce?

  • Drizzle it over vegan cheesecake
  • Enjoy it as a topping for pancakes or waffles
  • Top a bowl of ice cream or use as an ice cream sundae topping
  • Stir some into a cup of vegan yogurt
  • Make a parfait by layering vegan yogurt, berry sauce, and granola

How long will this sauce last?

This berry sauce will keep for up to a week in a covered container in your refrigerator. It can also be frozen for up to 3 months.

  1. Made today with frozen raspberries to top a slice of pound cake with vanilla ice cream scoop. Great substitute for strawberry short cake when there are no fresh strawberries! Can’t wait to try with pancakes or waffles. Delicious!

    This berry sauce is SO delicious! I love it on pancakes, waffles, and ice cream! I bet it would also be really tasty in some yogurt–and perhaps even on some biscuits!

    I’ve had this berry sauce over pancakes many times and it has never disappointed! I can’t get the idea of spooning it hot over vanilla ice cream out of my head and will definitely have to try it!
