You can use frozen or fresh strawberries and you will always get the same results: a delicious strawberry sauce. This is a fancy sauce that takes your desserts, dinners and drinks to another level!

What are the ingredients to make Coulis

  • Fruit – Fresh or Frozen works in this recipe. The only difference I found is that the cooking time to break down the frozen fruit takes longer than fresh fruit.
  • Cane Sugar – This will help sweeten the fruit along with cutting back the tartness.
  • Water, or Fresh Lemon or Orange Juice – This helps with simmering the fruit when cooking to release their sweet juices.

In this recipe, I used Strawberries to make Strawberry Coulis, but you could easily use any type of Fruit you have on hand, like raspberries, blueberries, cranberries, etc.

Strawberry Coulis Recipe Variations

  • Add 5-8 Rose Petals to the strawberries. These two together make a nice floral and fruity pair.
  • Add a tiny amount (1/4 teaspoon) of Vanilla Extract to the strawberries. This compliments the strawberries very well without being overpowering in vanilla.
  • Add 1-2 tablespoons of Lemon Juice or Orange Juice to the strawberries. This adds a nice tangy fruit flavor to the strawberries.

How to make Strawberry Coulis

Simple –  First you need to simmer down the strawberries (fresh or frozen) with cane sugar and water (or substitute fresh orange or lemon juice) until the fruit starts to break down releasing their sweet juices. You then strain the sweet sauce from the pulp, leaving you with this wonderful strawberry coulis to add to your recipes.

What is Coulis

Coulis (pronounced koo-LEE) is French for a thick sauce that is made from either pureed and strained vegetables or fruits. Coulis is typical used as a garnish for both entrees and desserts. In my recipe, you do not need a blender. You simply strain the cooked down fruit over a bowl and let it cool. It will thicken up as it cools.

What to do with Fresh Strawberry Coulis

This Simple Strawberry Coulis can be used in lots of ways.

  • Drizzle it over cheesecake, yogurt, oatmeal, waffles, pancakes, or ice cream
  • It pairs well with lemon-flavored desserts, like lemon pound cake and lemon cakes
  • Use it to make drinks, like Lattes and Alcoholic Beverages
  • Add it to your cheese boards
  • Add it to chocolate and make fruity truffles
