Curried Fruit Sauce

My journey into making a vegan dish! Blueberries, plums and strawberries cooked with coconut oil, agave and a hint of red curry.

Curried Fruit Sauce
I am not a vegan or even a vegetarian. I do strive to have a healthy balance in my diet though. Coupled with my love of
creating new recipes, I gave making a completely vegan dish a go. I am so happy I did. I fell in love with this sauce. From its gorgeous jewel toned color to the wide array of things it is a delicious complement to. This sauce is a multi faceted gem, not too sweet and with just a hint of spice from the curry. There is truly no end to the uses: it is great on breads, swirled with yogurt, on top of ice cream or oatmeal. By itself as a dipping sauce for apple slices. A dollop in a homemade smoothie. The list could go on and on. You can use it cold or warm it for whatever delicious idea you have in mind for it. Feel free to swap out the fruits if there is another you prefer over the ones I used. I plan on mixing up the fruits next time I make this. And there will be a next time very soon. This will keep in the refrigerator for up to a week. If it lasts that long!

Delicious with vanilla yogurt!


  1. Oh wow what a combination of fruit and I love the idea of the spices in here. I often put cinnamon in my fruit but I have never tried red curry powder before. Definitely one to try :D

    1. Thank you Emma! This is perfect with vanilla yogurt, a little sweet and a little spice!

  2. Wow, this recipe looks like it is incredibly multi purpose! That's a great thing about sauces like this, they can be used in so many other dishes and give so many different taste combinations.

    This looks so fruity and really different with the added spice.
