Simple Strawberry Syrup Recipe

Okay, so this strawberry syrup is something that happens fairly often around my house. Once you make it and use it a couple of times, you’ll totally be as obsessed with making and having strawberry syrup in your refrigerator as I am. I feel certain.

Simple as can be to make, a container of this strawberry syrup is made about once a week and disappears fairly quickly. We use it in numerous recipes from homemade strawberry milk to milkshakes, to drizzling over baked meringues, pancakes, waffles, and even biscuits.

It’s pretty addictive.

If you are watching your sugar intake, I have used sugar substitutes in place of sugar and had good results. You’ll just want to adjust to your personal taste and based on the substitute that you are using.

    Looks so YUMM! I was wondering, can I use honey instead? Would just boiling the strawberries with water then adding honey in the blender be fine?

    Hi Robyn,
    I made the strawberry syrup and frosting yesterday for my daughter’s 5 birthday cake. When I first read thru the recipe for the frosting…I thought, ok, here we go, I have to go get some strawberry syrup which is going to have all these chemical additives etc, and then AMAZINGLY you had the link to an all natural easy to make home made syrup which I already had all the ingredients for!!! Thank you so much. We drizzled it on the ice cream we served on the cake. I can’t tell you how many people said, mmmm, I love this frosting!
    Here’s to appreciating you and all your efforts- thank you!
