This homemade Blueberry Sauce is the perfect topping for sweet treats and so much more!
I have to be honest here. Blueberries are not my favorite fruit to eat raw. My son could eat an entire container by himself, but I tend to gravitate more towards strawberries and raspberries in that case. However, when it comes to recipes using cooked fruit, you can just pass me everything blueberry! I make addicting Vanilla Cream Blueberry Oat Muffins and this easy Blueberry Sauce I am going to share with you here is amazing on so many different things!
PERFECT BLUEBERRY SAUCE
This sauce comes together easily and quickly when needed. I’ve also made it ahead of time, kept it in the fridge, and then reheated it when I was ready to use it. And…I wouldn’t judge you if you decided to eat it straight out of the pan – it’s so good!
Wash the blueberries and remove any remaining bits of stem.
Combine all of the ingredients and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
Reduce heat to low and simmer until thickened, about 3-5 minutes.
I most recently used this sauce as the topping on a Red, White, and Blue Mixed Berry Puff Pastry Napoleon (a patriotic inspired dessert, yes, but delicious any time of year!). Other ways you could use this sauce would be to swirl it in oatmeal, as an ice cream sundae topping, or mixed into yogurt! You could also try it on top of a cheesecake, spread onto waffles, or as a delicious topping on a stack of warm pancakes, of course! From breakfast to dessert, the possibilities are truly endless!
I’d love to hear how you plan to use this homemade Blueberry Sauce (I’m sure I’ve missed quite a few great ideas!). Leave me a comment or send me a message any time and let me know!
