Easy Three Berry Syrup or Sauce

By

Updated January 19, 2008

An easy sugar-free berry syrup for pancakes or sauce for dessert. It can be made with fresh or frozen berries, in any proportions you like. I often just make it using a bag of mixed frozen blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries. If you use frozen berries, make sure there is no sugar added.

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1 cup blackberries
  • OR use 3 cups from a bag of mixed blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Artificial sweetener to taste - about 1/2 cup makes a traditionally-sweetened syrup
  • pinch of salt

Preparation:

Put ingredients in saucepan and bring to a boil. The berries will begin to break down as soon as the boiling begins. After 5 minutes, turn off heat and mash with a potato masher or fork to help break down the larger berries. Boil for another 2 minutes to combine. Remove from heat. Mixture will thicken as it cools.

Yield: about 1 and 1/4 cup of sauce. Each 1/4 cup serving contains about 7 grams of usable carbohydrate, 4 grams of fiber, and lots of antioxidants.
