Traditionally coulis is simmered in its own juices to thicken, but I wanted to speed up the process and went with cornstarch. The Grand Marnier® adds just a hint of orange flavor. This is great with cheesecake, drizzled over yogurt, or ice cream.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine blueberries, sugar, lemon juice, and zest in a small pot and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes.

  • Stir water and cornstarch together in a small bowl and add slurry to the pot. Cook until the mixture thickens, about 30 seconds.

  • Remove the pot from the burner and stir in orange liqueur. Pour coulis into a fine-mesh strainer and use the back of a spoon to force the liquid through. Serve hot or cold.
