Cherry Berry Syrup

- 1 cup apple juice
- ⅛ teaspoon stevia
- 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder
- ¼ cup water
- In a saucepan over medium heat, bring the cherries, blueberries, apple juice, and stevia to a boil
- Lower the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes, until fruit is soft

This Cherry Berry Pancake Syrup is another wonderfully satisfying recipe that I am sharing from my third book, Paleo Cooking from Elana’s Pantry. My boys gobble up this Paleo pancake syrup recipe on top of my Paleo Pancakes and sometimes I simply serve it for dessert with a heaping dollop of fresh homemade whipped cream. I also like to serve this syrup over my paleo crepe recipe along with a nice helping of Coconut Whipped Cream. This combination makes for a fantastic Paleo Christmas brunch, or a wonderful Paleo Easter brunch!
I am particularly fond of this pancake syrup recipe because it replaces high glycemic pancake syrup with a lower-carb, healthier version full of fruit and good fiber! The best part? No compromise on taste, and of course, it’s quick and easy to make.
I have an extremely picky 11-month old and we’re introducing solids to him. I tried giving him the cherry berry syrup on some whole milk Greek yogurt and that kid loves it! I love it! I was a little worried that I made too much initially but now before the three day mark, it’s practically gone! Great recipe!

Can this filling be used for Paleo cakes, tarts etc, or even muffin centres?

Lori Swardstrom says
Can this be canned to last longer?

This is a new sauce for me. Growing up my mom also made the blueberry sauce but not cherry. This will be a nice change up.
Rachel Metts says
This looks absolutely delish! Can’t wait to try it!
We live in Costa Rica where frozen cherries are a thing we could only wish for. Could you substitute frozen strawberries with a similar result?
Elana Amsterdam says
Although I haven’t tried that I imagine it would be delicious :-)
Nora (A Clean Bake) says
This is a wonderful recipe that I look forward to using in my home often. I love how it is naturally sweetened!
Eleanor Snyder says
Gonna try making this with our poha berries, a kind of ground cherry.
