Many people probably think of the classic maple syrup when the term "syrup" is mentioned. In the USA, an essential part of any breakfast, the popular maple syrup is traditionally served with fluffy pancakes. But apart from maple syrup, there are many other fruit syrups with which you can enhance your dishes, not only pancakes. Curious?
With Blackberry Patch, we've found a supplier from the USA (Thomasville, Georgia) that more than meets our high standards in terms of taste and quality. The company itself was founded in 1988 and produces special jams, preserves, jellies, and syrups based on old Southern family recipes. These syrups are made in the small-scale factory completely naturally and without artificial additives. Furthermore, the products are certified by the NON-GMO Project. The high fruit content of the fruit syrups is also reflected in their taste. Even a glance at the ingredient list, which consists only of the respective fruit, cane sugar, and a touch of lemon juice, shows that the focus here is clearly on the naturally fruity-sweet flavor. But now let's move on to the delicious fruit syrup recipes!
Delicious Raspberry Syrup Smoothie Bowl
The so-called bowls are currently a real food trend. The healthy bowls for breakfast are particularly popular. Packed with essential nutrients, the superfood provides plenty of energy to start the day perfectly. For the delicious smoothie bowl with raspberry syrup, you'll need the following ingredients:
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 tablespoon almond butter
- 80 ml almond milk

- Blackberry Patch Raspberry Syrup
Simply place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until everything is smooth and creamy. After about 30 seconds (depending on your blender's power), your raspberry syrup smoothie will be ready. As for the contents of your healthy bowl, feel free to let your creativity flow. We love to include oats, fresh berries, bananas, granola, nuts, and chia seeds. Mix the ingredients of your bowl well and then add the raspberry syrup smoothie. Enjoy your meal!
Heavenly Ice Cream Sundae with Blackberry Syrup
Especially on hot days, there's nothing more desirable than a refreshing ice cream. If classic vanilla ice cream seems a bit too ordinary or if you want to elevate your ice cream experience with blackberry syrup, pay close attention now. For the ice cream sundae with blackberry syrup, you'll need the following ingredients:
- Vanilla ice cream (or any other ice cream of your choice)
- (Ice cream) wafers
- Fresh berries
- Blackberry Patch Blackberry Syrup
The recipe is truly easy. Take the vanilla ice cream (or your favorite ice cream) and let it thaw for about 15 minutes to become nicely creamy and soft. Scoop out a few balls of your ice cream and place them in a bowl. Now you can add a generous splash of blackberry syrup and mix it with the ice cream. For that needed crunch, crush a few ice cream wafers and add them to your ice cream. Our tip: Often, the packaging already contains crumbled wafers. The delicious ice cream sundae with blackberry syrup is an excellent way to make use of broken wafers. Finally, you can enhance your ice cream creation with berries (especially delicious with fresh blackberries). This not only provides a welcome cooling during hot summer days but also offers your taste buds an extraordinary experience!
Delicious Milkshake with Blueberry Syrup
Frut syrup in a milkshake might sound a bit odd to some, but trust us. It's a true delight – and it's prepared in no time. Plus, you don't need any fancy ingredients for the blueberry syrup milkshake, just things you most likely already have at home:
- 5 scoops of vanilla ice cream
- 250 ml milk
- Blackberry Patch Blueberry Syrup
For the milkshake, put all the vanilla ice cream and milk into a blender and mix until you reach the desired consistency. Now add a good splash of blueberry syrup – done! If you'd like, you can add the blueberry syrup to the glass first. When adding the blueberry syrup (and later the milkshake), tilt the glass slightly. This way, you'll achieve the same look as the blueberry syrup milkshake shown in the picture. So, it not only tastes delicious but also looks exceptionally appetizing!
Homemade Lemonade with Fruit Syrup
Kids love sugar-sweetened beverages – especially soft drinks & co. Yet most commercially available soft drinks contain numerous artificial additives and flavors. With this fruit syrup recipe, we'd like to present a great alternative that not only tastes good but is also 100% natural. For about 2.5 liters of homemade lemonade, you'll need the following ingredients:
- 375 ml lemon juice
- 350 g granulated sugar
- 2 liters water
- a Blackberry Patch fruit syrup
Put the water and sugar in a pot. Heat the pot while stirring (do not bring to a boil) until the sugar is completely dissolved. When no more sugar is visible, remove the pot from the heat and let it cool at room temperature. Then place the pot in the refrigerator to cool further. Once the sugar-water mixture is cool enough, add the lemon juice and your chosen fruit syrup. Finally, give your homemade lemonade a good stir – done! As an ideal refreshment in summer, we recommend the delicious blueberry syrup. What's particularly great about this recipe is that you can experiment with a different flavor for each glass of lemonade. Just add the fruit syrup directly to the glass!
