Strawberry Milk Recipe

As a kid I loved strawberry milk.  Do you guys remember when Nesquik syrup used to come in bunny shaped bottles?  I used to feel so bad for throwing them out that I would keep them all.  Eventually the cabinet under out sink became so packed with bottles they would spill out whenever the door was opened!

Lately I’ve had a craving for Nesquik Strawberry Milk but being a little older and more health conscious, I wanted to make my own with simple ingredients that I felt good about, including feeling good about serving to my own daughter. 

And how do we make a healthy strawberry milk? We use fresh strawberries for the main ingredient!

Strawberry Milk Ingredients

For this simple recipe you will need:

3 cups strawberries – hulled
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
Milk

How to Make Strawberry Milk

This recipe is going to make about 6 ounces of strawberry milk syrup, which will make 4 servings.  You can keep this syrup in your refrigerator for 1-2 weeks.

First you’ll boil the strawberries, sugar and water in a saucepan, simmering it for about 10 minutes. Then transfer it to a blender and blend until smooth. Alternatively you could use a immersion blender (I love this tool, especially for cauliflower soup!). Either way, the boiled mixture will be hot, so please be careful.

After that you’re ready to use your strawberry syrup to make strawberry milk!  Add about 3-4 tablespoons into a cup of milk and stir. 

And just like that you have homemade strawberry milk! 

Vegan Strawberry Milk

If you want to turn this recipe into Vegan Strawberry Milk, that’s easy.  All you need to do is replace the milk with almond milk – I prefer Unsweetened Vanilla almond milk.
