Have you ever heard of a coulis?

Fruit Coulis, Fruit Sauce or Fruit Puree?

Whatever you want to call it, a fruit coulis is wonderful accompaniment to any dish, savory or sweet.

Easy to make, the sauces are packed with fresh fruit flavor, and with all of the fruits available, the flavor combinations are endless.

I have seen them made with raw fruits, but I prefer to cook them. To me, the flavor of the fruit really intensifies when cooked, and the puree gets a lovely smooth texture.

There are no special tools needed to make the recipe, just a few things, like a sieve/strainer and an immersion blender, that most people probably have on hand in their kitchens.

The next time you want to add a special touch to a dish, or impress your friends with a fancy sounding garnish, try making this sweet treat.

Raspberries, blackberries, blueberries and strawberries are all wonderful options.

Almost any fruit can be used in this type of sauce, but a couple may need a thickening agent, like cornstarch, to get the appropriate texture.

If you can't get a particular fruit, frozen fruits can also be used. Thaw them completely before cooking.

While I prefer a simple coulis because of it's intense flavor, feel free to experiment and add various spices or fruit juices for other layers of flavor.

Cook Time

Prep time: 52 min
Cook time: 8 min
Ready in: 1 hour
Yields: approximately 1 cup of sauce

Ingredients

  • 2 cups fruit, fresh or frozen. Chop larger fruits into bite sized pieces. Thaw frozen fruit completely.
  • 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup sugar, depending on taste
  • 1/2 cup water
  1. Note that the cook time includes preparing the fruit, cooking it, and cooling, pureeing and straining the mixture.
  2. Remove the pits from all stone fruits like peaches, plums and cherries, before cooking.

Instructions

  1. Wash the fruit. If using larger fruits, like peaches or pineapples, peel and cut into bite sized pieces.
  2. In a medium saucepan, add fruit, sugar and water.
  3. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat.
  4. Reduce temperature to medium heat and continue boiling for 6 - 8 minutes, stirring frequently. While cooking, the fruit will soften. Use the back of a spoon to gently crush the fruit against the side of the pan. Be careful because the mixture is very hot and can splash up and burn you.
  5. Once sauce has thickened to about the texture of syrup, set aside to cool.
  6. Once cooled, use an immersion blender to puree completely. If you don't have an immersion blender, pour the mixture into a regular blender.
  7. Pour the pureed mixture into a fine sieve/strainer that is resting over a bowl, and gently push the liquid through it. The sieve will collect most of the seeds and fruit pulp.
  8. Discard the seeds and pulp. Serve immediately or place into an airtight container and refrigerate. The sauce should last about one week in the refrigerator.

Preparation Notes

  1. This sauce should have the consistency of syrup. Do not overcook or it can get too thick and gel when refrigerated.
  2. Start with a lesser amount of sugar and add more if needed. Taste early on in the cooking, before it gets too hot. You will get burned if you taste this mixture while it is boiling.

Key Lime Pie with a Raspberry Coulis Recipe

Sometimes a key lime pie is just a bit too tart for me. Try this sauce for a touch of sweetness.

For the pie:

  • 1 - 9" graham cracker crust
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup key lime juice
  • 3 egg yolks

Combine the condensed milk, key lime juice and the egg yolks and mix until smooth. Pour into the pie crust and bake in a 350° oven for 15 minutes. Cool completely and refrigerate.

For the coulis:

  • 2 cups raspberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1/4 cup sugar (raspberries get sweeter when cooked so I try not to use too much sugar)
  • 1/2 cup water

Refer to the instructions in the photos above when preparing the sauce.

These are just some suggestions. Try seasonal fruits that are at their peak of flavor. Some fruits, like pineapple, contain more water and may need a thickening agent, like cornstarch. Always remove the pits from fruits like peaches and cherries.

Strawberry Coulis Recipe

This strawberry sauce is perfect on vanilla ice cream.

  • 2 cups strawberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1/2 cup sugar (these strawberries were out of season and not so sweet so they needed plenty of sugar)
  • 1/2 cup of water

Use the same instructions that are shown above for the mixed berry coulis recipe.

What do you think about these recipes?

5 stars from 8 ratings of Fruit Coulis

Try using different fruits, especially when they are in season and at their peak of flavor.

Whether you want to treat yourself, or are having a dinner party, these sauces add a special touch to any dish you make.

A fruit coulis also makes a terrific gift. Put the sauce into a nice jar and add a pretty bow. You are sure to be invited back if your bring a jar of this with you.

Of course you can always do what I do and grab a spoon and start eating! Enjoy!

      I had never heard the term "coulis" before, but of course I'm familiar with the concept. I love to bake and will definitely have to give this a try sometime. There are so many possibilities for it. Thanks for the fabulous pictures and directions!

      It is amazing what a sauce can do to finish off a recipe and your recipes sound perfect. I make jam and a few times that jams haven't set, so I have used them as a sauce over dessert. So good! Thanks for sharing!

      Thanks Bill! Like I told Rose, I love using that word because it sounds so fancy. If you like fruit, you'll love a coulis. It's unbelievable how intense the flavor becomes and when you have friends over for dinner you can impress them with a little bit. Have a great day!

      Robin - Thanks so much for reading. I agree with you about sauces. They really do add that special touch. My grandfather always said that there was not much that was better for a dish than a really good sauce. That's a good use for your jam too. Some people might just throw it out.

      I know the term "coulis" because it's French :-) For once I have a little advantage :-))) Great suggestions of fruits for coulis; it's always good on differents desserts. I prepare some also with a combination of red currants (that are growing in my backyard) and some of the other fruits that you mentioned in your hub. If you have the chance to try the red currants with other fruits I think you will like it. My favorite one is red currants and strawberries! I never tried to prepare a coulis with blackberries. I should try that one! Thank you for all your suggestions! Always interesting!

      Have a nice day!

      Many thanks to everyone who commented. It was wonderful to get the HOTD for this one. I'm not sure why, but I've always really liked this hub.

      Donna - I appreciate you stopping back by.

      Kristen - I hope you give it a try when you get that blender.

      RTalloni - I'm already thinking about desserts for the holidays coming up so hopefully other folks will check this one out too.

      Au fait - You are right, it is hard to pick a berry. The mixed berry one gives you a little bit of everything and is so delicious!

      QuintessenceOfAng - I'm glad you enjoyed this article. I hope you give a Coulis a try soon!

      Glimmer, I'll let you know. Probably in January 2016.

      I'd heard the word, "coulis," and knew it was a fruity sauce but not that it would be so easy to make. Cool! I'll post this as Recipe of the Day tomorrow on my Facebook page, "Cooking with Whole Grains & Real Whole Foods." Excited to find this. Thank you.

      Congratulations on this hub being selected for honors as Hub of the Day. Well deserved.

      Thanks so much for the support ecogranny! I love that it sounds like a fancier sauce too, simple to make yet sounds like something from a fancy french restaurant. I'm going to have to check out your facebook page. Thanks again for reading and commenting!
