Perfectly Pert Winter Berry Coulis

Winter Berry Coulis - Frozen Berries

It’s Sunday and we always go to dinner at my Mum’s for a roast from the Aga. There’s nothing quite like a good catch up in the warm kitchen whilst stirring the gravy and shredding the home grown runner beans.

I don’t know how it happened, but somewhere along the line a new tradition has crept in and I’ve been bringing along desert. Cheesecake to be exact. I’ll put the recipe on the blog later.

My Lemon Berry Cheesecakes

This morning I looked in the fridge and thought hmmm.. what can I put on the cheesecake today? There were a few strawberries that had seen better days and my favourite, blueberries, smiling back at me.

There weren’t enough to make a coulis but luckily I always have frozen berries to hand, usually for smoothies and for Dolly the Frenchie to have as treats ( it’s amazing how a frozen blueberry can do the trick).

So here it is, a super tangy winter berry coulis ready to pour over creamy lemon cheesecake later today. Enjoy! x

Best Ever Red Berry Coulis

This sauce gives that tastebud tingling extra to your cheesecake, pancakes, waffles or on vanilla ice cream.  Easy to make and you can use up berries in the fridge or it’s perfect for ‘wonky fruit’ you can buy frozen from the supermarket.
