Strawberry Topping

We eat a lot of ice cream during the summer. I mean, A LOT of ice cream. We make all kinds of fun flavors like Monster Cookie Dough, Turtle Brownie, and Cherry Cheesecake but sometimes it’s plain ole vanilla that my boys are craving.

I get a lot of requests during the summer to whip up this easy strawberry sauce. It takes just minutes to make and the flavor is simply unmatched.

By the way, blend this topping in with some vanilla or strawberry ice cream, some milk, and some malted milk powder….heaven.

Easy Strawberry Topping Ingredients

There are just 3 ingredients in this recipe plus water. Use the best looking strawberries for the best flavor. Don’t put in mushy strawberries because it WILL affect the flavor.

  • strawberries – you’ll need to wash, stem, and hull the strawberries for giving them a rough chop
  • sugar – granulated sugar, when melted helps to make this strawberry syrup
  • water – this speeds up the cooking process and helps to break down the strawberries
  • fresh lemon juice – balances the sweetness from the sugar and strawberries and gives this strawberry sauce a bright, fresh flavor

How To Make Strawberry Syrup

This recipe is just incredibly simple and FAST to make. My favorite kind of recipe. Strawberries, sugar, water, and a bit of lemon juice all jump in a small saucepan together and cook down until syrupy. Let’s do this!

  1. Combine strawberries, sugar, lemon juice and water in a small saucepan.
