My 3-year-old loves this 3-Ingredient Fresh Strawberry syrup so much she would drink it if we let her. I’m so excited to be posting this recipe. It’s so delicious on pancakes, french toast, waffles, or put a tablespoon in lemonade to make easy strawberry lemonade! If you don’t mind seeds in syrup then don’t even worry about pushing the blended strawberries through a fine mesh sieve, the thing that takes the longest in this recipe.
