Strawberry Milk

Doesn't it remind you of your childhood? It looks so pretty. It's Strawberry Milk! 

Made with homemade Strawberry Syrup. None of that bottled stuff. 
I was inspired to make this by a post on The Kitchn. I couldn't wait to try it. During my childhood I never liked chocolate milk, anything chocolate or candy per se. I used to be a weird kid. 

But I've always wanted to try Strawberry Milk, so I bought a bottle of syrup. It was good, not great. As soon as a I saw this recipe, literally ran to the kitchen to make it. 

It's so easy, and it'll only take 10 minutes of your time. I promise!

1 cups sliced frozen Strawberries 
1/2 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Water
1/4 tsp Vanilla (optional)

-In a sauce pan, add the water, sugar and strawberries and boil for 10-12 minutes. The mixture will reduce and thicken a bit. 

-After they're done, strain the mixture. Use the leftover fruit to eat with yogurt or ice cream, don't just throw it away.  

-Wait until it cools , then add 3 tbsp to 8 ounces of chilled milk.

Thank you for the nice comments!
The Strawberry Milk really is delicious. I should try Chocolate Milk very soon.

Sounds delicious! Now, do you wait another 10 minutes after you boil the strawberries for 10 minutes before you strain them?

Yadi I. said...

No, you don't have to wait 10 minutes to strain them. If you want, you can wait a few minutes until the strawberries cool a bit before straining them so you don't burn yourself. But I didn't wait to do that.

I just came across your site through La Buena Vida and am so glad I did. What a beautiful photo. Yes, this TOTALLY reminds me of my childhood. My kids, of course, think strawberry milk sounds HORRIBLE, but I have such fond memories of it (out of a mix, not made fresh). This looks LOVELY.
