When I was a kid, it seemed like every other kid was alllllllllll about that chocolate milk life. Not me. I wanted to chug strawberry milk by the gallon.
Back then, I thought the way to make strawberry milk was to squeeze a yellow bottle of factory-made syrup into my cup. Now that I’m older and wiser, I know that yellow bottle of syrup contains exactly 0% strawberry.
I wanted to make myself a genuine homemade glass of strawberry milk bursting with real strawberry flavor.
I was blown away by the result. It was so good that even Janette, who supposedly hates strawberry milk, will regularly ask me to mix her up a glass.
- Strawberries – Fresh strawberries at peak ripeness will yield the best flavor.
- Sugar – Use standard white granulated sugar.
- Water – You’ll need a bit of water to make the strawberry syrup. From the tap, purified, and bottled are all good choices.
- Milk – You can use any kind of milk or milk alternative that you prefer. Whole milk will yield the richest flavor.
How To Make
