This Blueberry Sauce, or Blueberry Coulis, is a silky smooth and vibrant sauce made of fresh or frozen blueberries. Sweet, tangy, and intensely blueberry, it’s a perfect topping for cheesecake, cakes, pancakes, waffles, or ice cream.
This Blueberry Sauce is a coulis, a sauce made of puréed blueberries. Fresh or frozen blueberries are combined with sugar and lemon juice then simmered for 10 minutes to thicken and intensify the sauce. After the sauce cools a bit, it is pureed then pressed through a fine mesh strainer. The resulting sauce is velvety smooth and intensely blueberry. If you want your sauce to have whole blueberries in it, don’t puree it.
You can make the sauce as tangy or sweet as you like, depending on what you plan to serve it with. Just increase the amount of sugar if you want a sweeter sauce.
For a delicious and vibrant combination, try the Blueberry Sauce served on top of my Luscious Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake.
