Ingredients

  • 2 cups sliced strawberries
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Milk preferably whole or 2%; non-dairy milk can be substituted
  • Whipped cream or sprinkles for topping (optional)

Instructions

  • Place the strawberries, sugar, and water in a saucepan set over medium heat. Simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened and juicy.
  • Set a fine mesh strainer over a bowl and pour the strawberry mixture through the strainer. Use the back of a spoon to press the strawberries against the strainer, extracting as much juice/syrup as possible. Chill the syrup. You can either discard the solids or save them for topping oatmeal or yogurt.
  • To serve: pour 1 cup of milk and add syrup to taste (I add between 3-4 tablespoons of syrup per cup of milk). Stir and serve.
