A delicious addition to so many desserts, my Easy Blueberry Sauce contains just three ingredients, and is so simple to make! Add to ice cream, yoghurt, pancakes and more!
Why we love this recipe:
Fruit sauces are so simple to make and should contain very few ingredients. Making your own means you know exactly what goes into the recipe. For my Easy Blueberry Sauce, just three ingredients are required to make this delicious condiment.
Homemade berry sauces can be used in so many different ways – they can take a dessert from plain to special in no time.
Blueberries not only taste amazing, but they’re also good for you! If you cannot get fresh, you can also use frozen blueberries for this recipe.
Ingredients in this recipe:
Please see the recipe card further along in the post for exact quantities of ingredients and the full method.
Blueberries – use the freshest blueberries you can find. Be sure to sort through them, to make sure they are blemish free.
Lemon Juice – freshly squeezed lemon juice helps balance the flavours.
Sugar – use regular granulated white or caster sugar.
Step by Step Instructions:
- In a non-reactive saucepan on a medium heat, add all of your ingredients. Stir well.
- Bring the mixture to the boil. As the berries heat, they will release their juices. Stir to dissolve the sugar.
- Lower the heat, and simmer for 5 minutes.
- Using an immersion blender, blend the Blueberry Sauce until smooth, or your desired consistency.
Tips for Success and FAQs:
Before you start your sauce, carefully sort through your blueberries, and make sure they’re free from blemishes and that they are all fresh. Thoroughly wash and dry the blueberries.
The sauce will last for about 4-5 days in the fridge.

Blueberries are my favorite and this sauce sounds perfect for ice cream, cakes or just eating with a spoon!

Your timing on this recipe is perfect, Alex! We’re in fresh blueberry season here for a couple more weeks, and we have plans to go pick another bucketful soon. I know you can use frozen berries, but we’re always looking for fun ways to use the berries we pick. I’m thinking a good vanilla ice cream with this sauce would be amazing!
Hi David, your idea to use the Blueberry Sauce with vanilla ice cream was perfect. So delicious! 🙂
