Nothing better than enjoying a homemade strawberry Sundae on a hot summer day. This recipe is an amazing desert especially after a nice delicious dinner. The red color of the strawberry sauce mixed in with the white vanilla ice cream gives the dessert the aesthetic it deserves. You can even serve the sauce warm on pancakes, cheesecake or just about any dessert if you wish!
Making your own strawberry sauce might sound difficult, but it is so easy! This strawberry sundae will always be a crowd pleaser and I love making it on special occasions. I prefer using fresh strawberries, but you can even use frozen strawberries if you wish.
How to make Strawberry Sundae
Make the strawberry sauce. In a medium saucepan on medium-low heat, add the strawberries, sugar and lemon juice. Wait until the strawberries heat up and begin to soften and eventually start to simmer, allowing the sugar to dissolve. Keep stirring for five minutes, or until a lot of the juices have come out. Remove the strawberries from the heat and use a potato masher to mash up the strawberries. This is your strawberry sauce.
Stick the strawberries in the refrigerator and wait until its cool down.
Make the sundae. Scoop 1-2 cups vanilla ice crema in a bowl. Add 2-3 tablespoons of the strawberry sauce onto the vanilla ice cream. Top with cool whip. Save the strawberry sauce for pancakes, waffles or any future desserts!
