  • Author: Sweets And Thank You
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 1 cup raspberry sauce 1x
  • Diet: Gluten Free


Raspberry Coulis – This fresh raspberry sauce recipe adds vibrant fresh flavor to desserts, treats, breakfasts, and more! 


  • 12 oz. fresh raspberries (or one 12 oz. bag frozen raspberries, thawed)
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice (about 1/2 lemon)
  • 23 Tbsp. sugar (can sub honey)


  1. Add raspberries to a blender. (If using frozen raspberries, remember to at least partially thaw them first, so they’re easier to blend!)
  2. Add lemon juice and sugar.
  3. Puree until the sauce is as smooth as possible. Pause to scrape down the sides of the blender as needed.
  4. Strain out the seeds by pouring the raspberry sauce through a fine mesh sieve. Place the sieve over a bowl, then pour the raspberry sauce into the sieve and pressing down using the back of a spoon or a flexible spatula to remove any seeds or large pulp from the sauce.
  5. Discard the seeds and pulp, and pour the smooth sauce into a bowl, container or small pitcher.
  6. Serve or Store. Store raspberry coulis in the refrigerator up to 1 week, or freeze up to 1 month. 


WANT YOUR RASPBERRY SAUCE EXTRA THICK? This raspberry sauce will continue to thicken as it cools, but if you want it even more thick, you can pour the strained raspberry sauce into a saucepan with 2 Tbsp. water and 1 Tbsp. cornstarch. Cook over medium heat until it’s thickened. (If it gets too thick, you can thin it out with more water!)
