Healthy Homemade Strawberry Syrup
This Healthy Homemade Sugar-Free Strawberry Syrup has all the flavor of strawberries but in liquid form! This all-natural, low-calorie syrup contains no high fructose corn syrup, granulated sugar or artificial food coloring, just pure strawberry goodness. Perfect in oatmeal, yogurt, ice cream, smoothies and more!
Instead of sweetening this syrup with high fructose corn syrup, bleached white sugar, artificial sweeteners or aspartame, I used all-natural stevia.
Instead of sodium benzoate (a preservative) I used… oh wait, this recipe doesn’t have any preservatives! WOOHOO!
Instead of artificial food dyes (that may be linked to hyperactivity, ADHD, tumors, cancer, etc etc etc) I used all-natural, plant-based food coloring.
Unlike regular syrups, this recipe doesn’t require any cooking (so you don’t need a candy thermometer). Just gather the ingredients, whisk it all together and refrigerate. Then it’s time to pour pour pour away!
BIG difference, eh?
100 calories vs. 5 calories
High Sugar vs. Sugar-Free
Artificial vs. Natural
Unhealthy vs. Healthy
(Right column sounds way better to me!)
Sweet, syrupy and smooth — all the flavor of strawberries but in liquid form and no pesky seeds either.
This syrup is the perfect replacement to storebought syrups (both the sugary ones and the sugar-free ones).
I’ll be back later, I’m about to pour this over everythang in my kitchen

PS: Some Blog Updates!
- Did you notice my blog’s new logo? I changed it because, even though I was in love with the old one, I will admit that it was a little difficult to read. I hope you like it, let me know what you think
- I also fixed up some alignment issues on the sidebar, updated the As Seen On Page and Nutrition Page, and added a few extra Q/A’s to the FAQ Page.
- It’s surprisingly difficult to change simple things on my site because everything is in code. You know that strange HTML stuff that looks like a different language? Like <html> and <body> … that fun stuff (HAH, not). Anyways, after successfully learning some code and fixing up the site, I did something stupid. Like, really stupid. I messed up a tiny snippet of code and it shut down my site. Long story short (aka, a one-hour panic that almost resulted in a near heart attack and mental breakdown) I fixed it! However, I did lose some of the comments from Sunday in the process, along with my responses to them. Ugh. If you left a comment/question on my site Sunday and it is no longer there, feel free to contact me and ask again. So sorry. I am taking a break from that code stuff. Never again!
Anyways, I hope you enjoy the recipe!
