This healthy and delicious Roasted Strawberry Puree is so much fun to make and truly a treat for the entire family. Keep it in the fridge to top ice cream, pancakes, waffles or even toast.
Roasted Strawberry Puree, a truly tasty sauce that is perfect for all things dessert. Did I mention that it only requires one ingredient? Now that’s something special.
This simple one ingredient wonder came to me from a meme I was continuously seeing on Instagram. It was telling me to roast strawberries and eat them like candy.
I did it and wasn’t the biggest fan of the texture although the flavor was amazing! I didn’t want to waste my hard work so I reimagined my plan and thus Roasted Strawberry Puree was born.
Can I just say boy am I glad I stumbled upon this beauty. Whether you want to use it for an ice cream topping or on a big bowl of oats it will certainly be a welcomed addition!
- Strawberries – Look for the deepest red colored strawberries as those have the most flavor.
- Lemon Juice – Optional but adds a great brightness in flavor.
- Sweetener – Also optional but if you want the puree a tad sweeter you could add any sweetener of choice.

- Roasting the strawberries pulls out the sweetness and gives them an amazing flavor. I like the addition of the citrus and a small amount of sweetener to round out the flavor but it is not needed if you don't have any on hand.
- For the optional sweetener I used coconut sugar but maple syrup or really any other sweetener would work as well.
- This is great on oatmeal, pancakes, yogurt parfaits, chia seed pudding or even toast.
