This sweet homemade Strawberry Filling is a delicious dessert condiment that you can use for anything from topping ice cream to filling cupcakes! Made with fresh or frozen strawberries and a pop of lemon juice, you’ll fall in love with this fruity filling.


  • 32 ounces (2 containers) strawberries, pureed
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons flour, sifted
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons warm water


  1. Chop and puree the strawberries using an immersion blender or food processor.
  2. In a medium-sized saucepan, heat the strawberry puree until it’s lightly bubbling. Then, add the lemon juice and sugar, stirring to combine. Cook over medium-high heat and bring back to a boil.
  3. In a small dish, combine the flour and warm water and whisk until the flour is dissolved. Pour the slurry into the puree mixture and whisk to combine.
  4. Reduce the heat and simmer for another 10-15 minutes. The bubbles will go from small and rapid to a thick and a slow boil. Stir occasionally until the strawberry puree is thickened.
  5. Allow the puree to cool completely, refrigerating to help speed up the process.
