How to Make Strawberry Butter
Making homemade strawberry butter starts with just a few basic ingredients, but you really want the best ingredients for the best combination of flavors! Choose whole, milk-fat butter and any fresh, in-season berries for the cleanest, sweetest flavor. It’ll be worth the effort!
To Mix the Butter
- Start with room temperature strawberries and crush them until you’ve got about ¼ cup after crushing.
- Whip butter with a blender until it is light and frothy.
- Add in the powdered sugar and then slowly add in the strawberries, making sure everything is gently incorporated.
Place the strawberry butter in a mason jar with a lid or a tightly sealed Tupperware container. Keep in the fridge for up to ten days. To make sure it spreads out evenly, be sure to let your strawberry butter warm slightly (about 15 minutes) before use.
What Goes With It?
All kinds of great things go with strawberry butter! Just like with honey butter, it just depends on how you want to use it! For breakfast, it goes great on pancakes, waffles, banana bread, or even English Muffins.

Looking for a dried fruit compound butter. Do I rehydrate the dried fruit or just put it into the softened butter dried, as is?
I haven’t tried this with dried fruit so I can’t say for sure.
If I make homemade butter from heavy whipping cream, could I use that or should I buy unsalted butter? Sorry for the questions, kinda new at this :)
I haven’t tried making this recipe but homemade butter but that sounds so delicious Christina! It should work, let us know how it turns out.
Wow, that sounds wonderful. I was thinking that you might even use cream cheese in lieu of butter – about 4 ounces and make whipped strawberry cream cheese. Great on mini bagels, toast, waffles, pancakes and French toast. I know you can buy the whipped strawberry cream cheese, but making you own is so fulfilling.
Can you put in jars and seal with water bath like apple butter?
I would recommend freezing it for long term storage Wanda. Enjoy!
Did you use salted or unsalted butter?
I use unsalted in this recipe.
love it i do one with mix berries and create a log to put on pancakes – this is great for a brunch
Mixed berries would be wonderful too!
I love doing this with seasonal berries! This also freezes well if you put it in small rolls and cover it with plastic wrap.
Great tip! Thank you for sharing!
Going to make this. Could you also try this with apple pie filling?
Oh what a yummy idea! I am going to put that on my list for next week!
This would be perfect on scones for afternoon tea :-) I will be trying it very soon thank you for the recipe x
Has anyone made it with a different fruit like blueberry or raspberry? How much does this recipe make if the butter is stored in jam mason jars?
This makes just over 1/2 cup of strawberry butter.
Can I use frozen strawberries or should use fresh ones Okay
I haven’t tried this with frozen strawberries. If you do use frozen strawberries I would recommend defrosting and draining them first so your butter is not watery.
I was just wondering…Could I possibly freeze this?
I haven’t tried freezing it so I am not sure how it would work out.
This will be awesome on the Chocolate waffles & pancakes I make for my Grandkids! I make them in big batches using sour milk/choc. milk & then freeze them for a quick breakfast when they’re here. I think I should be able to divide it into portions & freeze. Probably won’t be as good as fresh, but still work! Now if the snow would just melt so my strawberries could grow! lol (I live in northern MN, we still have aprox. 3 feet of snow in our yard!!!)
Oohh!! Chocolate waffles with strawberry butter?? That sounds like a FANTASTIC treat… bring on spring, we’re ready!
I just want to make sure I’m reading this right. You refrigerate thisfor ten days before eating?
You can eat it right away and it will last up to 10 days in the fridge.
I would put this on hot biscuits or toast!
