Easy 3 ingredient lower sugar strawberry coulis to use as a topping on pancakes, waffles, ice cream, cake, cheesecake or yogurt. The best strawberry topping that's lower in sugar, yet full of berry flavor!


Units Scale
  • 1-pound fresh or frozen strawberries, hulled and sliced (about 2 1/4 cups)
  • Zest and juice of 1 medium lemon or 1/2 medium orange (about 1/4 cup)
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar, maple syrup or honey
  • Pinch coarse salt


  1. Place the strawberries, lemon or orange zest and juice, sugar, maple syrup or honey and salt in a medium saucepan. Bring to a simmer and cook 10-15 minutes or until the strawberries are very soft.
  2. Use an immersion blender to puree the coulis until smooth, adding a few tablespoons of water if needed. Alternatively, transfer the strawberry mixture to a blender or food processor and puree until very smooth.
  3. Transfer the coulis to an airtight container, let cool, then refrigerate up to 7 days.


Substitution Tip: Use any berry, dark sweet cherries, peaches or mango instead of strawberries.
