I halved this as it was just my daughter and I and I used only blueberries since I didn't have any raspberries. I can only imagine how great this is with them! With just blueberries it was lovely. I love how quickly this comes together too. Thanks! Read More

This was awesome. I used a combination of blackberries and raspberries because that's what I had on hand. I also followed the advise of another reviewer and added 1 T. of lemon juice and 1 T. of cornstarch disolved in 2T. of water. The only thing that detracted was all of the seeds. Next time I will run the syrum through a strainer at the end. Definately will be making often! Read More

I used 3/4 cup each blackberries/half raspberries (that's what I had on hand), 1/4 cup of Splenda, a little more water than called for (as I wanted it a little thinner) and I added a tablespoon of lemon juice. This was just sweet enough and made an excellent topping for fat free frozen yogurt. Read More

good recipe.. I did have to tweak it a little because it wasn't thickening. I added some cornstarch to some cold water and threw that in. It thickened and was very yummy!! Read More

We love topping our pancakes with fruit syrups and light whipped creme. This is almost perfect-but missing a few simple ingredients. It needs a tsp. of lemon juice and 1 TBSP. cornstarch added to 2 TBSP. water. Add to the rest of the ingredient list, blend then heat the syrup and it will thicken. It will be a syrup more in keeping for pancakes, ice cream topping, etc. Otherwise you have a fruit topping that is absorbed by your pancakes rather than laying on top of them. If you don't like seeds, mash, then strain the seeds, (that's a lot of work though...) Easy, Tasty, winner recipe. Thanks! Read More

This was a great recipe! I enjoy eating fruit syrups with my breakfast foods but they can cost so much and usually very limited in variety; this was a great save for my breakfast. I used mixed-berries and cherries in mine since that was what I had on hand and it was delicious! I had to mash the cherries down because they were large but I'm definitly adding this to my regularly used book. Read More

Just tried this I was looking for a way to eat more blueberries. I used fresh blue berries and left out the raspberries but this was still great along with a little whipped cream. Read More
