  • 2 cups blueberries can use frozen
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup sugar can use 1/2 cup swerve or stevia for no-sugar option
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest


  • Mix all ingredients together in sauce pan.
  • Bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat to low and cook until you reach the consistency you desire. 15 minutes for a thinner consistency, longer for a thicker sauce.


You may see recipes with a ratio of 1 cup sugar to one cup blueberries. I found that to be too sweet. You can adjust to your own taste.
