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

  1. Start with room temperature strawberries and crush them until you’ve got about ¼ cup after crushing.
  2. Whip butter with a blender until it is light and frothy.
  3. 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.

  1. Looking for a dried fruit compound butter. Do I rehydrate the dried fruit or just put it into the softened butter dried, as is?

  2. 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 :)5 stars

    1. 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.

  3. 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.5 stars

  4. I love doing this with seasonal berries! This also freezes well if you put it in small rolls and cover it with plastic wrap.

  5. 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?

    1. 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.

  6. 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!!!)

    1. Oohh!! Chocolate waffles with strawberry butter?? That sounds like a FANTASTIC treat… bring on spring, we’re ready!
