Super Simple Strawberry Syrup Recipe

Strawberry Simple Syrup Recipe for lattes

strawberry simple syrup recipe

After making my raspberry simple syrup, I couldn’t wait to try it out with my other favorite berries! We had fresh strawberries on hand, so that’s what I made next.

My kids love it in sparkling water, and we’ve also drizzled it over homemade vanilla ice cream… yum! The sky is the limit, I’m sure you’ll go through it quickly. This recipe is made to fit inside an 8 oz mason jar, but if you want more, just be sure to double the recipe.

Alright, let’s get right to it… here’s my super simple strawberry simple syrup recipe for you!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup strawberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup cane sugar (or you can use white granulated sugar, whatever you have on hand!)

Instructions:

1. Pour sugar and water into your saucepan over medium heat.

2. Stir to combine the sugar and water.

3. Cut strawberries into fourths.

4. Add strawberries and mash them (if they are frozen, let them soften a few minutes before mashing).

4. Bring to a boil while continually stirring, make sure all the sugar fully dissolves.

5. Remove from heat and cool completely.

6. Strain the strawberries (save them for other recipes!) and collect the syrup.

7. Transfer to an air-tight container and store in the fridge for about 2 weeks.

And that’s it! It really is that simple.

I used the strained strawberry compote as a waffle topping and my kids loved it!

For lattes, you can use the same amount of this syrup as you would any store-bought version. Here’s a handy little conversion chart for you (go ahead and screenshot it!).

How much is

in a pump?:

If you’re trying to recreate your favorite coffee shop latte, it can be confusing to figure out how much “a pump” of syrup equates to!

Here’s your quick conversion breakdown:

1 pump = 1/2 TBSP = ~1/4 oz

2 pumps = 1 TBSP = ~1/2 oz
