Raspberry Coulis

This one is super quick and easy. It’s such a great healthy sweet treat. Pour over yoghurt, pancakes, fruit and granola or just eat on it’s own. My daughter loves eating it just as is. Prep and cooking time – max 15 minutes.

Raspberry Coulis


    fresh raspberries
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon water (Don't need water if using frozen berries)


  1. In a small saucepan, on low head, add all three ingredients and let simmer on medium heat for 15 minutes
  2. Depending on your tastebuds, you may add more maple syrup if you like it less tart.
  3. Once cooled, either serve as is or for a smooth coulis, blend until smooth.
  4. Then using a fine strainer or muslin cloth, strain the coulis to remove all the seeds.
  5. Chill in fridge and serve over yoghurt, ice-cream or drizzled over cake.



Frequently Asked Questions

Can I adjust the sweetness of the coulis to suit my taste?

Absolutely! The sweetness of the coulis can be adjusted to your taste. During the simmering process, you can taste the mixture at about seven minutes and add more maple syrup if you find the flavour too tart. This allows you to customize the sweetness level to your preference.

What is the purpose of simmering the ingredients in a saucepan before blending?

Simmering the ingredients in a saucepan helps to soften the raspberries, release their natural juices, and infuse the mixture with flavour. It also thickens the coulis slightly and reduces any tartness from the raspberries.

Can you provide tips for achieving a smooth consistency in the coulis?

If you prefer a smooth coulis without seeds, after simmering, you can blend all the ingredients in a small blender until you achieve a smooth consistency. If you want to remove seeds completely, you can strain the liquid through a very fine sifter or muslin cloth, letting the liquid drip into a bowl while leaving the seeds behind.

How should I store the raspberry coulis, and how long does it stay fresh?

To store the raspberry coulis, simply chill it in the fridge. It's best served nice and cold. When properly refrigerated, it should stay fresh for several days, but it's so delicious you'll likely use it up quickly!

Can I use this raspberry coulis in other ways besides pouring it over yogurt or pancakes?

Absolutely! This raspberry coulis is versatile and can be used in various ways. It's a delightful topping for desserts like ice cream, cheesecake, or panna cotta. You can also drizzle it over waffles, oatmeal, or as a sauce for baked goods.

What are some creative serving ideas for this raspberry coulis?

You can get creative with serving ideas by using the coulis as a swirl in smoothie bowls, as a dipping sauce for fresh fruit, or as a layer in parfaits. It adds a burst of fruity flavour to any dish.
