EASY BLUEBERRY SAUCE — This quick and simple blueberry sauce is the perfect accompaniment to ice cream, cheesecake, pancakes, waffles and so much more.
This stuff makes a pretty amazing yogurt and granola parfait, if I do say so myself!
While the recipe calls for frozen blueberries, this sauce is an especially great way to use up those fresh blueberries that may be just a little to ripe for eating, but not past the point where you need to toss them.
And you can literally whip up a batch of this sauce in about 5 minutes. If you keep some frozen blueberries on hand, you can have homemade blueberry sauce any time you’d like.
I like to store my blueberry sauce in a glass jar in the refrigerator, where it will keep for about a week. This blueberry sauce is so versatile though, it rarely lasts a week around here.
We love to spoon this sauce over vanilla ice cream for a simple but delicious dessert. It’s also great on angel food cake, or as a cheesecake topping. The possibilities for using this blueberry topping are almost endless.
If you’re looking for an easy way to make your desserts or breakfasts recipes extra special, try adding some of this delicious homemade blueberry sauce. No one has to know how easy it is!
