After you taste this we are confident you will no longer be adding refined sugar to your coulis! The great thing about making raspberry coulis is that it goes with so many things… We love serving it with desserts, our coconut and raspberry pancakes or our superfood breakfast parfaits.

It is so easy to make and requires minimal ingredients so is also much more economical. We really believe that it is worth making your own for that added freshness and peace of mind, knowing exactly what is going into your food and avoiding any unnecessary processing.
