Strawberry Simple Syrup


  • Strawberries 1lb Washed and halved
  • Simple syrup 8-10 oz [depending]
  • Lemon juice [optional] 1-2 Tbsp

Add all the ingredients into a blender, and blend till smooth or leave a bit of chunkiness depending on your preference


[Easy way to make Simple Syrup! No heat needed.]

  1. Add equal parts water and sugar in a jar. Make sure the  jar is not more than 2/3 full. Seal the lid tightly.
  2. Shake the jar continuously till sugar has dissolved. Let rest for 1 min then shake again. It might leave a bit of sugar on the bottom of the jar. If so add equal amounts of water and repeat same way
  • Of course you can heat the water and sugar in a small saucepan, stirring till the sugar has dissolved. Cool and store in the refrigerator.
