This easy mixed berry dessert sauce recipe takes all of 25 minutes to prepare and is made with raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, sugar, and fresh lemon juice.
Fruit sauce is also called coulis (pronounced koo-LEE) and is one of the six types of dessert sauces. Others are chocolate, caramel, custard, fresh cream, and sabayon sauces.
- 1 1/2 cups raspberries (fresh or frozen, divided)
- 1 1/2 cups strawberries (fresh or frozen, sliced, divided)
- 1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen, divided)
- 3/4 to 1 cup sugar (to taste)
- 1 to 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (to taste)
Gather the ingredients.
In a medium saucepan, combine 1 cup of the fresh or frozen raspberries, 1 cup of the fresh or frozen sliced strawberries, 3/4 cup of the fresh or frozen blueberries, 3/4 cup sugar and 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice. Bring to a simmer over medium heat until sugar has dissolved, about 10 minutes. Adjust sugar, adding up to 1/4 cup more (or to taste) if necessary, and cook until dissolved.
Puree the berry mixture in a blender or food processor, return to the saucepan, and bring to a simmer. Add an additional 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, or to taste, if necessary.
