Homemade Strawberry Milk

Homemade Strawberry Milk

I saw a recipe for strawberry milk on We are Not Martha and decided to make it for my kids’ after school snack. It was simple to prepare and made the most delicious strawberry milk. My kids absolutely loved it and asked me to make it again very soon. I love that this milk put a huge smile on my kids’ faces and that it was made with real fruit.

Homemade Strawberry Milk

Place the sliced strawberries, sugar, water, lemon juice, and vanilla in a small saucepan over medium high heat and bring to a boil. Lower heat  to medium low and let simmer, stirring often, until mixture thickens into a syrup, about 10 minutes.

Strain liquid into a bowl, pressing with the back of a wooden spoon to extract as much juice as possible. Discard solids (or feed them to your kids… my daughter gobbled them up). Place the strawberry syrup into the refrigerator to chill. Once the syrup is cold, pour about 2-3 tablespoons of the strawberry syrup into a glass of milk. Stir and taste, add more syrup if needed. Serve immediately. Enjoy.

  2. YUM!! Wish my mom would have discovered this when we were kids.. we had to use that powdered stuff to get strawberry milk.. and I don’t even remember it tasting much like strawberries!! lol

  3. I haven’t had strawberry milk in AGES because the ingredient list and nutritional stats are so awful. Homemade is defintiely the way to go! yum!

  4. I’ve never tried cooking my strawberry flavoring. I just do it the lazy way, and throw everything into the blender. Now I want strawberry milk, too!

  5. the strawberry milk you find at the store is SO unhealthy and SO expensive, and that always makes me sad because it’s one of the yummiest beverages i’ve ever had. this recipe is going into the archives!

  6. And probably far more healthy than the stuff you buy in supermarkets, where you don’t know exactly what’s gone into it!
