Simple Blueberry Sauce
This easy blueberry sauce recipe is made with only blueberries (fresh or frozen), sugar, lemon juice, and cornstarch. It’s thick, sweet and the perfect topping for toast, waffles, ice cream, oatmeal and so much more! If you don’t like blueberries, other types of berries will work just as great, like my Fresh Strawberry Sauce.
This homemade blueberry sauce is great because is super easy to prepare, the lemon juice gives it a nice perk to the sweetness and it’s also bursting with flavor and delicious, juicy blueberries.
How to make Blueberry Sauce
- Gather the blueberries, sugar, water, and lemon juice and combine them into a medium pot.
- Bring the pot to a boil, then reduce the heat and let it simmer for 6-8 minutes, stirring occasionally until the blueberries start to burst. Then stir in the cornstarch mixed with cold water and continue to simmer for a further 4-6 minutes.
- Remove from heat and let cook. Serve immediately or keep in glass jars in the refrigerator.
Tips for making this Easy Blueberry Sauce
If you don’t have fresh blueberries, frozen ones will work just as great. If you’re using frozen blueberries, there’s no need to thaw them first.
The sauce will continue to thicken as it cools down, and especially after it has been refrigerated.
You can store the sauce in an airtight container in the refrigerator where it can last for up to five days.
Can you freeze Blueberry Sauce?
Definitely! If you freeze the sauce, I suggest thawing it overnight in the refrigerator and then warming it up in a saucepan until it’s nice and smooth.
What can I use Blueberry Sauce on?
Once it cools down, you can top this sauce on just about anything you fancy. Here are some delicious ways to use this blueberry sauce:
- On top of waffles, pancakes as well as for ice cream.
- As a topping for cheesecakes.
- Stirred into some greek yogurt or cottage cheese.
- For a delicious breakfast, top your toast, as well as your oatmeal with a spoonful of this sauce.
- Also, you can add a couple of spoonfuls on top of some freshly baked muffins or a piece of cake.
