Raspberry syrup is an amazing way to transform a handful of raspberries into a flavorful component for drinks, cocktails, desserts, and breakfast goods. This raspberry simple syrup comes together in less than 10 minutes!


  • 1 cup raspberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1/2 cup cane sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • pinch salt


  1. Add all ingredients to a small pot and bring to a simmer over medium heat.
  2. Mash berries with a fork then simmer for 7 minutes.
  3. For a thicker raspberry syrup suitable for pancakes and waffles, simmer for 15-20 minutes to thicken and reduce the syrup.
  4. Optional: strain through a sieve to remove all seeds and raspberry pulp for a smooth syrup.
  5. Pour into a clean container and store in the fridge for 1-2 weeks or in the freezer for up to 3 months!


*This recipe will yield 1 cup of raspberry syrup if not strained and 2/3 cup of syrup if the seeds and pulp of the raspberries are strained out.

*If simmered for 15-20 minutes for a thicker syrup, the yield will be lower (closer to 1/3 cup strained) so plan ahead and make a double batch if you’d like plenty for breakfast!
