Quick and Easy Fruit Syrup

Updated on August 14, 2010

So Simple yet So Good

This takes absolutely no cooking skills. All you need are frozen berries with no sugar added. It doesn't matter what kind.

  • Raspberries
  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Black berries.

Now...

To make this syrup, the only equipment you need is a microwaveable container. For large batches I like the heat proof glass measuring cups. For small batches, say for one child, a paper cup works great.

Toss berries into the measuring cup or paper cup. You'll have to play it by ear as to how much to put in. I just put in the berries until it looks right. Now put in the microwave and microwave a minute at a time until the berries melt, get hot and make their own syrup.

Enjoy!

Now just pour the berry syrup onto what ever you like, pancakes, waffles, ice cream. It tastes great, is super easy and best of all the only sugar is the sugar that is naturally in the berries.

      What a good idea! The best part for me is no sugar - thank you so much. I think I'll try blueberries first :)

      Its the only way I do anything, if it's not easy, it doesn't usually get done. Thanks for your comments.

      I discovered it by accident trying to thaw out frozen berries. I have been a fan ever since. Glad both of you like the idea as well.
