This strawberry milk is delicious and easy to make. It’s made with only 3 ingredients, fresh juicy strawberries, milk and sugar.
Add the strawberries into a food processor or blender and process until smooth.
Strain the strawberry mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into the sauce pan while pressing as much juice into the pot as possible. See process shots in the body of the post.
In a saucepan over medium-high heat add the strained strawberry mixture.Let it come to a boil then simmer for 10 minutes occasionally stirring until slightly thickened
Chill the syrup for about 45 -60 minutes.
To serve, stir in about 2-4tbsp of syrup into one cup of milk. Add more if you want it sweeter.
This is an easy two-ingredient recipe, so quality matters.
Adjust sugar to taste. The strawberries I use were sweet but if yours aren't that sweet you may have to add more sugar.
Straining the strawberry mixture:
Don't worry if you don't strain all the seeds from the strawberries. You can also pour the finished strawberry milk through a strainer to remove any leftover seeds.
I've only tried this recipe with whole milk and unsweetened coconut milk. It works fine. It's not as sweet with the coconut milk, but it's still refreshing. I'm sure you can use pretty much any kind of milk to make this.
How to store it:
Store in an airtight containers and keep it can be left in the refrigerator for several weeks.
