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!

Ingredient Notes:

  • 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.

Ingredients
 

  • 2 packs strawberries

Optional Add In's

  • Squeeze of lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp. sweetener of choice (I used coconut sugar)

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
  • Wash, dry and remove stems from your strawberries.
  • Place them on an ungreased sheet pan in one single layer.
  • Roast for 2 hours, flip over, roast another 2 hours.
  • Pull out of the oven and allow them to cool for a few minutes before handling.
  • Place into food processor and process until smooth. You can add the fresh citrus and sweetener at this point if desired.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

  • 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.
