Easy 2-Ingredient Raspberry Coulis



We had a meeting for our Young and Marrieds group yesterday and I made a no bake chocolate cheesecake as my dessert contribution. It was made with 70% dark chocolate so it was intensely chocolaty and much-loved by hubby who is a huge fan of dark chocolate and I have been a recent convert of his. 🙂

Whenever I make a dark chocolate dessert, he often requests that a fruity sauce be served with it. So, I make sure I have raspberries to make a quick and easy coulis (which is the fancy French term for “sauce”) to accompany his chocolaty dessert. He loves how the fruity sauce cuts on the richness of the chocolate but at the same time enhances the overall flavor of the dessert! I completely agree as oftentimes it is the sauce drizzled on top that certainly brings any delicious dessert over the top.



This lead me to think that I ought to make a post on this super-easy sauce because it is so versatile and not just the perfect complement for chocolate desserts. It’s great as topping for ice creams, cobblers, waffles, pancakes, etc.

Did I mention it was super-easy? Yup, simply puree the fruit with sugar and then strain (to remove the seeds unless you don’t want to) and voila a deliciously sweet-tangy sauce is born! You can use other fruits, too and during winter time some partially thawed frozen berries work well, too.
If you want to give your dessert that extra fruity boost then I suggest drizzling this sweet-tangy raspberry coulis on top!

      Yes, it's really perfect Ali as I just drizzled this all over the vanilla ice cream I had for dessert yesterday! 🙂

    Yum! I love raspberry coulis and it is SO easy. I recommend with honey, too, but yours looks amazing!

      Sometimes I make this with honey and add a squeeze of lemon juice too so I agree that is equally delish, Alisa. Thanks!

    I make this all the time when I do chocolate desserts! Especially David Lebovitz's Chocolate Idiot Cake. Such awesome raspberry flavor! Yum!

    gah!! I'm posting a similar recipe on Monday (although mine is a bit different). Love that yours has just two ingredients; it's all you really need for something like this. So much flavor and so many great uses for it!

    I was just about to ask what a coulis was 😉 I love how it's just fancy French. I like fancy French! The next time I make an overly sweet recipe, I'm trying this out on it!
