Quick and Easy Mixed Berry Topping Recipe

Updated on February 17, 2013
5 stars from 2 ratings of Mixed Berry Topping

As I bit into my waffles with the usual syrup and butter, I've always wandered if there was something else that I could add in its place. Instead of experimenting with different toppings, I decided to just buy the different varieties of waffles that were available at the stores. After I while, I became bored with the usual and decided that I wanted something quick and healthy to add to my waffles or anything else such as cake, cheesecake, pancakes, etc. I discovered this easy recipe and decided that it was time to share this with others who were having the same problem as I was. Take a look below. It doesnt take long to make and its quite delicious. ENJOY!

Cook Time

Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 5 min

  • 2 cups mixed berries, frozen
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch

  3. Microwave this mixture for about 2.5 mins.
  4. After this check your mixture, if it is not thickened and steaming, microwave for another 2.5 mins.

This berry mixture can be added to muffins, pancakes, waffles, angel food cake, a pie, made into a pie for a healthy version of the popular take on dessert, cakes, yogurt, berry shake, fruit salad, and cheesecakes. I hope every enjoys this recipe and tries it immediately. Quick, easy, and fun!

As I've mentioned above many times, you can add this healthy topping to almost anything. Something I forgot to mention is that you can add in a cup of strawberries and blueberries, if you wanted a variety of flavors in the topping that you can add to enjoy your breakfast or dessert!

      @teaches12345 thanks for the positive feedback and I agree that fruit toppings are better than syrup toppings.

      I always prefer fruits as a topping to my pancakes and waffles. I really do not like the sticky syrup or the fattening butter taste. You have my vote on this thought!

      torrilyn, Blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries: you've convinced me! All but the blueberries grow in the yard. In fact, the strawberries constitute the predominant ground cover.

      In the nearby meadows are (invasive) wineberries. But they look and taste great. Wildlife likes them too. They'll be gone in a couple of years, to be replaced by something else: Blueberries and elderberries would be on my wish lists.

      Respectfully, and with many thanks for sharing, Derdriu

      Adding fruit of any kind to one's morning breakfast is always a good idea. Like you stated, this or similar fruit combinations can be used for other times of the day as well. Up and useful votes.

      I love adding fruit to waffles! I used to make a mango sauce for my waffles years ago, and that was tasty, as well.

      It would certainly taste great on pancakes, too!

      Thanks for sharing this. Sometimes it's the simple little things that make a meal so much tastier (and healthier).
