Strawberry-Orange Syrup


I have a yummy recipe for you today.  Remember my Fresh Strawberry Syrup recipe?  Well, while making waffles the other day I had a craving for the unique flavors of strawberry and orange together.  So I came up with Strawberry-Orange Syrup.  And oh my . . . it's so fresh, so sunny, and so easy.

It's very similar to my Fresh Strawberry Syrup and it's perfect on whole wheat pancakes, waffles, crepes, and even ice cream!  And I have say that I LOVE the ruby-orange color.


Strawberry-Orange Syrup

2 cups of strawberries (about 1/2 of a 16 oz package)
2 oranges
2 TB orange zest
1/2 cup to 1 cup sugar (to taste)
2-4 TB agave nectar (optional) 



Cut the tops off your strawberries.  Zest the peel of your orange (I use a grater).

Cut off the peel of your oranges and slice it into quarters.  You can just peel it by hand, but I like to slice it off with a knife so I don't have the white pith in the syrup.

Put all the fruit and zest in the blender.  Add the sugar and agave syrup a little at a time.  You'll want blend it a little and then test the sweetness.  Add more if needed, but don't over-sweeten it. You can use all granulated sugar, or you can use all agave syrup.  I used a little of both until I liked the sweetness of it.

P.S. I LOOOOVE my blender!!


This recipe makes approximately 2 cups of syrup when it's blended.

Blend until nice and smooth.

Serve immediately with your favorite breakfast foods.

I like to put the syrup in jars and freeze for later.  It will also stay fresh in the fridge for about 1 week.

What kind of fresh fruit syrups do you make?
