3 Ingredient Strawberry Sauce – put frozen strawberries, water, and some granulated sugar for this easy addition to ice cream, crepes, pancakes and more!
This strawberry sauce…
Oh, yes, this sauce.
I don’t know why I don’t make it more often. It’s so gosh darn easy.
I think it might be because it’s associated with the blintzes I make only on holidays or for the kids’ birthdays.
This sauce is a must when I make that dish. It’s just a given that when mom makes the cheese blintzes, this strawberry sauce will be going on top.

I tried the canned fruit fillings once. Nada. Those were still sitting in the bowls and this stuff was annihilated.
Ok, maybe that’s a bit of a gross exaggeration, but there was a very tiny amount remaining when all was said and done.
If by chance there happens to be any left, we usually put it on top of our ice cream. I especially like it on top of my coffee ice cream. YUM!

I rate everything I make on a scale of 1 -4 with 4 being the best and this 3 Ingredient Strawberry Sauce earns 4 rolling pins again and again and again.
It’s so super easy and simple. Just remember to watch the pan as it boils as it can tend to boil up and quite possibly over, and I would hate for you to have to clean that mess up.

If you find that’s happening, just reduce the heat and stir. Been there, done that, so let me save you the trouble.
One day I’ll put the blintz recipe up. They’re a bit time consuming but are SO very worth it.

Love it! Can this be double and the. Half frozen for later use?
Sure can, Patricia! Thank you!

I cant wait to make this! Can this be used between layers of a cake? I’ve been looking for a strawberry filling for this purpose.
Thanks, Thresa, I hope you like it!
I don’t see it being used as a filling for cakes as I think it’s too thin and would absorb too quickly into the layers, but you could certainly give it a try!
Could you make a cornstarch slurry to thicken? Cornstarch wouldn’t alter the flavor.
Andrea, I haven’t done that, but I don’t see why you couldn’t if you’d like to thicken it.
If you do give it a try, I’d love you to leave some feedback to help others out if they’re interested in doing the same.
