Note: Our recipe only has 1/4-1/3 cup sugar, so it’s lower in calories and 0 fat, which is a big bonus for those of us who are trying to eat healthier!
Tip: We buy blueberries whenever they’re on sale and pop them in the freezer. There’s no need to rinse and drain them, just put them in the freezer right in the container they come in.
We had some frozen blueberries and some fresh on hand for this recipe. So, fresh or frozen blueberries will work perfectly.
Cook over medium high heat until it comes to a simmer, stirring gently.
Reduce heat slightly but keep the sauce simmering.
Go ahead and pick up a some of these little blue beauties and make a batch of our quick and easy blueberry sauce for your family the next time you make pancakes, waffles or french toast!
Cook a few minutes, stirring often until desired thickness is achieved.
Some of the berries will burst and some will stay whole, which gives this sauce a great texture and makes it very berry-ish (new word alert). It’s hard to believe you can make up a batch in such a short time, but you can!
This recipe makes approximately 1 1/2 cups of scrumptious blueberry sauce.
