  • 2 cups raspberries fresh or frozen (thaw first if using frozen)
  • ½ cup unsweetened apple juice
  • cup granulated sugar
  • cup agave syrup
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice


  • In a medium saucepan over high heat, combine raspberries, apple juice, sugar, agave syrup and lemon juice. Bring mixture to a boil, stirring continuously.
    Reduce heat to medium and continue cooking and stirring for 5 minutes. The mixture will remain thin while it's hot.
  • Remove from heat. Place a heat-proof fine gauge strainer over a medium heat-proof bowl and pour hot syrup mixture into strainer. Press mixture through strainer with a heat proof spatula or spoon to remove seeds. Discard seeds and any remaining pulp.
    Allow syrup to cool for 15-20 minutes. It will thicken as it cools. Serve with your favorite pancakes, waffles or French toast.
