Recipe: Berry Sauce

You might be thinking…what in the world is berry sauce? Well, it is a simple invention that makes homemade flavored yogurt, strawberry milk, and berry ice cream a piece of cake! All you have to do is mix a few teaspoons of the finished sauce into whatever your heart desires, although I do recommend sieving out the seeds for the optimal berry-flavored milk. Please no more Hershey’s “Strawberry Syrup” which is pure high-fructose corn syrup! This berry sauce is also a great topping on pancakes and waffles. The possibilities are endless!

      I do this too but no need for maple syrup or any sweetener, just the berries make it sweet enough for me.

      I use 1 1/2 cups Greek yogurt and 1 cup frozen strawberries (or other frozen fruit). I add about 2 Tablespoons of honey and a smidge of liquid stevia extract. I love the boost of protein for my kids who are sometimes stingy about meat and other protein sources.

        Hi Sonali. I’ve kept it for 3 or 4 days.

      Are you talking about Greek or just plain regular yogurt?

      • Amy Taylor (comment moderator) |

        Hello Julie. Either will work.

      Can I use fresh berries to make this sauce & simply adjust the water?

      • Amy Taylor (comment moderator) |

        Hi Bridget. That’s not something we’ve tried.

        I do and it works great! Fresh strawberries are cheaper than frozen right now!

      This is fantastic and so simple to make! We eat a lot of yogurt and have struggled to move away from the sweetened greek yogurts. Well, I actually prefer plain greek yogurt with this berry sauce on it.

      Thanks Lisa!

      Typically how much berry sauce do you add to plain yogurt?
