Commercial syrup or homemade syrup?

Well, if we compare the additives and the amount of processed sugar that industrial syrups have, they may be more "tasty" for some.

But the truth is that you are able to get to that flavor with the products indicated with a homemade syrup recipe. If you choose the ripest strawberries and the right sweetener that does not lose properties in the heat or does not change the flavor.

Even if a different flavor is achieved according to the products you use, it is an interesting proposal to decorate and flavor our desserts.

It is up to your choice to prepare it and choose what would be the best proposal for you and your family or diners for whom you will cook.

Strawberry syrup

One of the tastiest is strawberry syrup. This can accompany ice creams, shots, or mini cakes. It has a great flavor and is one of the syrups that can be eaten as naturally as possible.


  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice,

  • 150 milliliters of water,

  • 250 grams of strawberries,

  • 125 grams of sugar,

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon.

Preparation of the strawberry syrup

1. Clean the strawberries well, remove the leaves and chop into small squares.

2. Now, put the water, the strawberries and the sugar in a pot. Mix well and bring to the fire.

3. Next, add the lemon juice and cinnamon. Let cook for approximately 20 minutes.

After this time, evaluate the thickness of the preparation. It is important that you know that when you remove it from the heat, the syrups can thicken a bit.

So when hot, it is not convenient for it to be so dense unless you are going to make jam.

4. Wait a bit and strain the syrup to remove the seeds from the strawberries.

The best way to preserve is in an airtight jar. This will give you 1 week in the fridge to use.

This is a sweet that young and old will love and that, like the strawberry one, can be combined with any dessert.

You need to prepare the homemade caramel syrup

  • 40 grams of whipping cream,

  • 90 milliliters of water,

  • 75 grams of sugar.

How to prepare caramel syrup?

1. Make a syrup with the water and sugar first. Bring these ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly so that the sugar melts.

2. Let it boil without stirring.

3. When you see that the edge of the sugar is changing color, move so that the whole mixture takes this color.

Make sure it does not turn black as its flavor would be very bitter. Consider then that the temperature of the preparation should not reach 200 °C so that it does not burn.

4. When all the mixture takes an ocher color, remove from heat.

5. Now, add the cream. This will create a few bubbles at first. Let it go down and with a trowel, incorporate the ingredients well.

If for some reason it crystallizes, you can add a few drops of lemon.

With the caramel, it is ready to be stored in an airtight container for better conservation. And ready! A great homemade caramel syrup to ensure.

These recipes are very simple to prepare, it only requires patience and being very attentive. In either case, use low to medium heat until you get the shot.
