Strawberry Milk (no artificial colors or flavors)
Sweet strawberry milk filled with the flavor of fresh strawberries. Ditch the store bought syrup; this easy recipe is only 3 ingredients, with no artificial colors, flavors, or dyes.
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
- 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)
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.
