Why buy strawberry milk from the store when you can easily make your own? Also this way you know exactly what goes into it.

Strawberry milk is a quick and easy treat for kids and adults alike. All you need is a handful of strawberries, some honey, and milk. Works just as well with almond milk (unsweetened) if that’s what you prefer or if you are going dairy-free.

It’s so easy to put together even a 4 year old can do it. (See my goddaughter Piper with the blender? She couldn’t wait to make it!)

    In Mexico this would be a “licuado de fresa”. I love licuados! I would have one for breakfast before school each morning. On weekends, my best friend and I would go to the corner frutería and get a licuado to go, and then walk around the neighborhood. You can also add sweetened condensed milk (Lechera), and of course almost any fruit would work. In Mexico you can pretty much get a licuado of anything, even vegetables (Licuado de nopal is very popular among dieters) :)

    I bet you could had some yogurt to that and make it into a nice tummy yummy smoothie!

    Your god-daughter Piper is a world-class cutie. She also has good taste — this strawberry milk recipe beats that convenience-store soft drink by miles!

    I’m thinking this would also be good with blueberries as well as blackberries (although it might resemble “Swamp Water” rather than “Pink Yink Drink” if you added those darker colors).

    It sounds delicious, at any rate, and I shall be making my own as soon as I go to the supermarket and buy some strawberries! (I live in Eastern LI, and late May and all of June is “local strawberry” season out here — for the rest of the year, we rely on strawberries from the Left Coast.)

    Cheers!
