Strawberry Milk

Sweet, pink, creamy, and delicious, strawberry milk is a huge hit with the kids. It's so easy to make, too! Just three ingredients and a quick whir in the blender.

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. It also 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!)

The Best Strawberries to Use

This recipe is best with summer strawberries that are at the very peak of ripeness. This is how you’ll get a naturally sweet drink without needing to add a lot of additional honey.

This is also a great way to use up berries that are slightly past their prime, or you can use frozen strawberries. Frozen strawberries are strawberries that are picked at the peak of the season, so usually they are really good.

Can You Use a Different Sweetener?

Sure! We liked honey in our strawberry milk, but you could make it with maple syrup, agave nectar, or any sweetener you prefer. Just start with a little bit at first, and then taste and add more as needed.
