Okay, so this strawberry syrup is something that happens fairly often around my house. Especially during the peak of strawberry season!

Once you make it and use it a couple of times, you’ll totally be as obsessed with making and having it 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.

As a matter of fact, I have a pretty funny story about it.

A few years back, my son’s friend Ethan went on a trip to Florida with our family over spring break. Florida strawberries were just unbelievably delicious and I couldn’t help buying a flat of them from a local farmer’s stand while we were there. With only a tiny RV refrigerator, I knew as much as I loved strawberries, I couldn’t take up the entire thing with them!

So, I did what any Mama would do. I made batches of this strawberry syrup for strawberry milkshakes! Ha!

Well, most Mama’s would probably have frozen the majority of their strawberry haul, but since our freezer storage was even smaller than our refrigerator storage I went the strawberry syrup direction!

Anyway, Ethan loved those strawberry milkshakes nearly as much as I did and for the longest time, every time he’d visit he’d ask if I had any strawberry syrup. I’m happy to say that I usually did! 🙂

To make it, you really only need three ingredients, a saucepan, a cooktop and a blender! In just a jiffy you have this strawberry deliciousness and your kitchen smells like absolute strawberry heaven!

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.

My strawberry syrup recipe also freezes well, so that you have it throughout the year! Just make sure that you’ve chilled your syrup well, place it into freezer-safe containers, label and freeze!

  1. Is this a good recipe for syrup that will go on pancakes?

  2. This syrup is heaven! I’ve used it in your strawberry buttercream recipe and I’m dying for a good milkshake. What did ya’ll put in your strawberry milkshakes? Or rather, what amount?

  3. Can I use frozen strawberries?  I know fresh would be better but very expensive where we are right now. 

  4. This is so simple and so so so delicious.  It brings out the strawberry flavour so much that I even use it as flavouring in cakes and buttercream.  But The rest of the family have a more simple approach pouring it over their ice-cream.  And they can’t get enough of it.  Thanks for a great recipe.

  5. Super simple and delicious.Thank you for sharing!!!

  6. Can I give this to my 2 and half year old son in his milk daily?

    • It is not a good idea to add extra sugar to milk that your two year old drinks daily. Sugar really should be limited in children, especially young children. 

  7. Hi!! Could I can this?? I’d probably have to add some citric acid or a bit of lemon juice…

  8. It made a lot to use for your cake recipe, how long can it be refrigerated and still be safe to use?  By the way it, your strawberry icing and cake recipes were GREAT!

  9. I used this to make the strawberry frosting for the white cake, it was delicious.
    At first, only the kids had cake, and since kids have the best palate for real food, like real strawberries, they loved it.
    Then a couple adults tried a small piece.
    Then EVERYONE had some, yay!
    Tons of props.
    And everyone wants strawberry frosted cakes for every birthday now, thank you!! 🙂

  10. Can this syrup be canned the way apple butter is to make it last longer and not need to be refrigerated until opening? I was thinking if it can be done that way, it would make great gifts.
