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 Healthy Homemade Sugar Free Strawberry Syrup 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!

  2. I love this recipe! I love your site so it’s no surprise I love this recipe. 😉 You could use just about any natural flavoring in it. I feel your pain about the HTML disaster, yikes. Before I started to build my site I thought I sort of enjoyed site building and coding. After building my site – I will be very happy if I never have to see HTML again. ;P Or CSS, which is the even more foreign-language coding my site uses. This is why tech people get paid big bucks.

    • Kath @ Natural Kath-
      YAY I’m so glad you like the recipe 🙂
      And WOW, congrats on building/coding your site! I think my jaw just hit the floor. I take one look at all that code and it takes my breath away.
      And that’s so true, the reason I tried doing all these fix-ups myself is because I couldn’t dish out hundreds of dollars for a simple fix. But maybe it’s worth the investment, knowing my luck haha 😉

  3. Your site looks AMAZING!!! I love the new logo and especially the photography. Superb.

  5. WOW this looks awesome! 🙂 I quit sugar a few months ago and I really miss strawberry syrup and chocolate syrup 🙁 I’m so glad I found this thanks!

  6. Have you ever tried this with fizzy water? I have a soda stream from my soda drinking days, and I’ve been considering making mixes, similar to soda mix thickness, to use with fizzy water to have a soda kick every once in awhile! 🙂 I haven’t made this yet, but I don’t know how thick it is, or if it would be too much to have a soda lol.

    • Cianna-
      Oh that’s a great idea! I haven’t tried adding this to plain fizzy water but I’ve added it to Zevia’s orange soda and it was great! You just need to swirl it in and make sure it’s fully incorporated 🙂
      Now I want to get a soda stream… hehe 😉
      Hope you like the soda!
