Roasted Strawberry Puree

Updated: May 17

This simple one ingredient wonder came to me from a meme I was continuously seeing on Instagram. It was telling me to roast strawberries and eat them like candy. I did and wasn't the biggest fan of the texture although the flavor was amazing!

I didn't want to waste my hard work so I reimagined my plan and thus Roasted Strawberry Puree was born. Can I just say boy am I glad I stumbled upon this beauty. Whether you want to use it for an ice cream topping or on a big bowl of oats it will certainly be a welcomed addition!

Roasted Strawberry Puree

Yield: 1 cup

Prep: 5 minutes

Total Time: 4 hours 10 minutes


2 packs strawberries

Optional Add In's:

Squeeze of lemon juice

1 tbsp. sweetener of choice


  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees.

  2. Wash, dry and remove stems from your strawberries.

  3. Place them on an ungreased sheet pan in one single layer.

  4. Roast for 2 hours, flip over, roast another 2 hours.

  5. Pull out of the oven and allow them to cool for a few minutes before handling.

  6. Place into food processor and process until smooth. You can add the fresh citrus and sweetener at this point if desired.

  7. Enjoy!


*Roasting the strawberries pulls out the sweetness and gives them an amazing flavor. I like the addition of the citrus and a small amount of sweetener to round out the flavor but it is not needed if you don't have any on hand.

*For the optional sweetener I used coconut sugar but maple syrup or really any other sweetener would work as well.

*This is great on oatmeal, pancakes, yogurt parfaits, chia seed pudding or even toast.
