Raspberry Sauce Recipe

This homemade Raspberry Sauce is made with fresh berries and cooks down into the perfect topping for ice cream, cheesecake, or in a smoothie!

Raspberry is in my top 5 favorite flavors list. It might be number one, depending on the quality of the berry I have in front of me. I love it that much.

Some of the most memorable times from my childhood are picking raspberries out at my Grandparent’s house, and in the winter having Grandma heat up a bowl of those berries from the freezer, pouring some sugar over it, and letting me go to town.

No better dessert than that!

This sauce is simple. The hardest part is taking the seeds out of it, and even that isn’t really hard, just a bit time-consuming.

We made this tonight for a topping on the vanilla cheesecake I’ll be bringing to Thanksgiving dinner. I hope I can keep my paws off of it until then! I had to ‘test’ it tonight on some ice cream.

Homemade Raspberry Sauce

Yield: 2 cups
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes

Homemade raspberry sauce to top your cheesecake, ice cream, or just eat with a spoon. You know. Classy-like.


  • 4 cups whole fresh raspberries
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 tbsp Chambord
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup water


  1. Place berries and sugar into a sauce pan over medium low heat. Cook until liquid is released and sugar is dissolved, about 15 minutes.
  2. Take the berry mixture and press through a fine metal strainer. On occasion, with a different spoon, scrape the bottom of the strainer to remove any stubborn pulp that is sticking there.
  3. Put back into a now cleaned out saucepan. Add Chambord, water, and vanilla. Stir well and simmer over low heat for another 10 minutes.
