Strawberry Simple Syrup

This Strawberry Simple Syrup, with just 1 teaspoon per Mocktail, brings little touch of beauty benefits! I use this for my strawberry basil  Mocktail…a little goes a long way. A little antioxidant bump from strawberries, can help promote radiant skin, fights inflammation, and supports a healthy complexion. Sip your way to a glow!

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 10 oz strawberries
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 pinch salt


  • Using a small sauce pan set stove to medium heat. Next add water, sugar, salt, lemon and strawberries.
  • Bring to a low boil and let it simmer for about five minutes until sugar is fully heated and the strawberry flavor is infused into the liquid. *It is important to not mash the strawberries. Let them just simmer and boil. You do not want the seeds to release from the berries and get into your liquid. It will make the liquid cloudy.*
  • Let it cool for 20 to 30 minutes. Once cooled, strain the berries through a mesh strainer into an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 weeks.
  • You can also pour the strawberry simple syrup into an ice cube tray and freeze for one to two months to use in your favorite cocktails and mocktails.


If you prefer to make a zero calorie simple syrup– follow the recipe above while omitting the sugar. Once the liquid mixture has cooled completely simply add monk fruit sweetener, and you will have a 0 cal simple syrup. * please note do not put the 0 cal sweetener in the sauce pan with the water, strawberries, lemon, and salt. It will not work.
Personally, I do not enjoy the 0 cal simple syrup as anything other than real sugar seems to upset my body however, it may not do the same for you. Use your discretion when preparing any recipe.
