It’s also the answer to lowering your family’s intake of sweetener in the form of syrup.

Plus, it’s infinitely versatile.

Try it on:

You can make it with or without the maple syrup.  If your family is used to sweet syrup on pancakes and such, you’ll want to add the maple syrup.

If your goal is to reduce the need for sweetener, you can gradually decrease the amount of maple syrup over time.

Easy and delicious, this Homemade Blueberry Syrup is amazing with pancakes, waffles, yogurt, brownies, and more. This recipe makes enough to last my family of five for several pancake meals. Feel free to reduce or increase the amounts to meet your family’s needs!


  • about 10 cups frozen blueberries (3 lb bag)
  • about 1/2 cup maple syrup (or to taste)


  1. Add frozen blueberries to a large pot and turn heat to medium-high.
  2. Stir occasionally.
  3. When berries are no longer frozen, reduce heat to medium-low.
  4. Simmer until reduced, stirring occasionally.
  5. When berries have reached your desired consistency, turn off the heat and add the maple syrup.
  6. Stir well, then allow to cool a bit.
  7. Pour into blender (carefully!) and blend on low. Note: please know your blender’s capacity and speed functions. I have a Vitamix, which safely holds an entire recipe of this syrup. I do NOT use a high blending speed for this syrup, especially when hot. A lower speed is sufficient to puree the berries while still keeping the liquid level low in the blender. You do NOT want hot blueberry syrup shooting out the top of your blender.
  8. Serve! We use a small ladle to serve the syrup right out of the Vitamix.
  9. Store leftovers in a glass bottle or jar in the fridge.
