Strawberry Milk

I bought my goddaughter Piper and her sisters the Green Eggs and Ham Cookbook for Christmas this year and the one recipe Piper (age 4) wanted to make was the “Pink Yink Ink Drink”. The Yink drink calls for frozen blackberries (which we didn’t have) and fresh strawberries (which we did), so we made strawberry milk, which suited the Pipe just fine.

Strawberry Milk Recipe



  • 1-2 cups milk
  • A handful of strawberries, rinsed, stems removed
  • 1 to 3 Tbsp honey


Put milk, strawberries, and 1 Tbsp of honey into a blender. Blend until thoroughly smooth. Taste and add more honey if you wish your strawberry milk to be a little sweeter.

    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.)


    P.S., Elise, I love this site. I have saved many of your recipes to my “Simply Recipes” folder, and have made a few of them … all wonderful, and your Dad and Mom are terrific contributors — now we know why YOU’RE such a great cook! Excelsior!

    A recipe so easy, even a Piper can do it. Your goddaughter redefines cute, and everything always tastes better when drunk from an animal head mug!
