Berry Sauce

30 Reviews / 4.9 Average
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.

Berry sauce swirled into plain yogurt

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!

    We all love our yogurts and yogurt tubes around here but, since finding your site and reading the ingredients on those labels, I’ve stopped buying them. Instead, I now keep a regular supply of homemade mini-yogurts in my fridge. For each yogurt, I use 1/4 cup plain, full-fat organic yogurt with slightly less than 2 TBSP of your berry sauce added. My daughter and I LOVE them (I usually can’t resist eating one as soon as I finish making them). My son isn’t convinced yet that they are as tasty as the yogurt tubes but he has asked to try them a few times so he may change his mind eventually. For the recipe, I usually increase the amount of berries to 1 cup since it gives me a little extra sauce and a couple of extra mini-yogurts.

    I followed the recipe exactly. I added it to plain yogurt. I liked it, but my kids hated it. Haven’t found any yogurt they like that’s not pre-sweetened! :(

    1. Marsy, have you tried pureeing bananas and adding it to the yogurt? I used do this for my son when he was a baby. I have one of those tiny food processors (got it at Walmart on black Friday for $4) and I just drop a banana in, and blend until it is smooth. Then I mix it in with the yogurt and sometimes add granola on top. It is really sweet without any added sugar. We love it!

    2. For my son, I started sweetening plain, whole milk yogurt with maple syrup. Measure and used what i thought was too sweet and slowly reduced. It took a few weeks, but he now eats barely sweetened yogurt.

      Hi Hailey. Yes, they can be exchanged 1:1 and the flavor will obviously be somewhat different. ~Amy

  3. Irf you use fresh strawberries do you have to cook it? Can’t you just puree whole berries or does it not taste as good?

    1. Assistant to 100 Days (Amy)

      Hi Silia. Sure, it would just be less sauce and more fresh fruit puree. The taste and texture will be different. ~Amy

  4. I made 2 batches of this tonight, 1 blueberry and 1 strawberry. I froze them in an ice cube tray, and there was enough in 1 batch for 6 cubes. Perfect!

  5. Made this last night for my daughters yogurt and milk and she loved it! I’m slowly switching my daughter to real foods and you are such an inspiration!

    Hi Jen. One of our team members said she kept it for more than a week. You could always freeze it, too. ~Amy

    Finally! Strawberry sauce that isn’t complete junk! My daughter ALWAYS asks for me to buy “Strawberry” milk and I had to listen to so many fits for not buying that junk. Used this in milk and in yogurt and everyone loves it!

    Everything I make from your recipes I love!

    It doesn’t get much easier than this. I have made this a few times with strawberries and mix it with Greek yogurt. I think I will try blueberries next time.

    I just made this sauce with frozen cranberries. I then mixed it with greek yogurt – DELISH!!!! My one year old loved it as well. Thanks for the great idea!!

    Another great recipe. My son loves it in his almond milk, on top of his whole wheat banana pancakes and as a dipping sauce for his strawberries. Thanks for all the whole food, simple recipes.

    This stuff is DELICIOUS!! I actually used it today on a peanut butter sandwich, because I forgot to buy fruit spread when I was at the store. It did seep through my hearty wheat bread a bit, but it was so tasty!! YUM!!

  12. I am making a cheesecake for Christmas desert & am going to try this for the first time as a topping! I have blueberries & raspberries in e freezer waiting!

  13. Best way to seive out the seeds please. I have one of those micro colanders (well – weave is a little tighter than a sifter – not as fine as a juicer but tight enough strawberry seeds can’t fit through) and the juice seems to just sit there. I keep rubbing it with a spoon to push it through and can’t seem to get much out of the pulp and I feel I waste more juice doing this (like with blackberries and strawberries). I have a juicer but boy is it a setup and breakdown. Tips?

      Hi Amanda. I actually don’t take out the seeds. If I were to do it though, I’d probably use a sieve that you can pour it through. Jill

    1. Although I haven’t tried it, I’d imagine it would work just as well. If you use local honey it will be even better for ya!

  14. Dear,
    I am new to your blog. I just want to say thank you for the berries sauce. it help me out alot since my hubbie is a huge fan of the sweet, and im trying to serve as many healthy “foods” around the house as i can. He also love the chocolate syrup with his milk, does any better solution in this case for me to not use the store-bough one ? forgive me if my question is a litle bit not related to this article. Thank you again, and looking forward to hear from you or someone out there.

      Hi Kelly. I usually keep it up to a week. Yes, you can freeze it as well. I sometimes freeze it in individual servings so I can easily sweeten yogurt. Jill

  15. I have some strawberries I puréed during the summer to use over the winter. Would it work to follow these steps with a purée? Thanks.

  16. I just made this sauce and mixed with it plain yogurt. Delicious!!! Even my picky eater (7 yr old son) LOVED it.
    Thank you!!

  17. Just made this tonight as a sauce for our crepes. YUM! So much better than just plain maple syrup. My husband said, “I have always liked your crepes, but with this on it–Wow.” Thanks!

  18. I just made a raspberry sauce and strained out the seeds. I immediately tried it over plain, whole milk yogurt. Delicious!

      Hi Sarah. I’ve kept it up to 2 weeks and it’s been fine. You could probably also try freezing it, although I’ve not done that. Jill

  19. I was addicted to eating Chobani flavored Greek yogurt and have been struggling with eating just plain yogurt, but this makes it taste like my beloved flavored yogurt! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

  20. Love this idea! I just switched from the Stonyfield flavored yogurts to the plain and this will make the transition easier. I also have never given my son strawberry milk…he is going to be in LOVE! :)

  21. This is a HUUUGE favorite at my house. I make a batch at least every week. My son loves it with his waffles (again, your recipe). We also use it with yogurt, on ice cream, anything we can think of! THANK YOU from my whole family!

  22. YUM!!! I just made this with less water, fresh blueberries, and honey instead of syrup. Probably more of a compote instead of the jelly I was going for but it worked just fine!!! Will use the rest for syrup on waffles tomorrow and try again without using water :) SO GOOOD!!!

      Hi Melissa. I do not take the seeds out…but, you could try it if you don’t like them. Jill

  23. Hey! This looks supper yummy and I can’t wait to try it. I’m just wondering how much does this recipe make? About a cup of sauce?
