This 3-ingredient Strawberry Coulis is a super simple 30 minute recipe that can be used in cocktails, desserts, salads, and more. It sounds fancy, but it's incredibly easy to make and delicious in a number of applications.
- 1/2 lb (8 oz) fresh strawberries, diced into 1/4-inch pieces
- 1/4 cup (1 3/4 oz) granulated white sugar
- 1 tablespoon (1/2 oz) freshly squeezed lemon juice
- Add the chopped strawberries, sugar, and lemon juice to a small saucepan.
- Bring to a simmer over medium heat and mash the strawberries. Reduce heat to low and let simmer for 15 minutes, at which point the fruit should be softened and broken down.
- Remove from heat and let cool for 15 minutes.
- Use a blender or immersion blender to blend the strawberry mixture into a smooth puree.
- Strain through a fine mesh sieve until you have extracted as much of the strawberry coulis as possible. This step removes any seeds so you have a completely smooth coulis.
Seeds: A coulis is traditionally a completely smooth puree, which is why we strain the mixture through a sieve to remove any seeds. If you don't mind the seeds, you can skip this step.
Fridge storage: Store the coulis in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
Freezer storage: Freeze in ice cube trays to enjoy at a later date. They'll keep in the freezer for 3-6 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator before using.
Strawberries out of season? Feel free to use frozen berries instead of fresh.
