Ingredients for Blueberry Sauce Recipe

This easy berry sauce recipe is great year-round… because you make it with frozen blueberries.

Sure, you can make a blueberry reduction recipe from fresh blueberries. But I have found that this blueberry sauce recipe comes out better when you use frozen blueberries.

Low Calorie Tips for Cooked Blueberries:

  • Use Frozen Berries… There’s something about the defrosting of the blueberries in this recipe that helps the berries release more juice and turn into a sticky, sweet, perfect blueberry syrup.
  • Add a Boost of Flavor with Zest… Lemon (or orange!) zest is zero calories and adds a ton of flavor! Add it in after you cook the blueberries.
  • Give the Recipe Complexity with Vanilla… Real vanilla extract will help take this from a simple blueberry compote, to a fancy berry sauce. It’s not required, but fun to add from time to time.
