  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice filtered
  • ½ cup sugar increase if more sweetness is needed


  • Wash the blueberries and transfer it to a small or medium sized saucepan.
  • Add the sugar and water, mix well.
  • Heat the contents and bring the mixture to a boil.
  • Once the mixture starts boiling, cook the mixture in medium heat, keep stirring in between.
  • Cook the mixture until most of the water content evaporates and the sauce thickens, which will take around 4 to 5 minutes. Make sure to keep stirring often at this point.
  • Add the vanilla extract and lemon juice, stir the contents well, switch off the stove and transfer the saucepan from the hot stove.
  • Allow the sauce to cool down as the sauce thickens more as it cools down.
