Scrumptious homemade Strawberry milk is a super easy four ingredient sweet creamy treat that will blast you back to the past. Food can be so wonderfully nostalgic. I am sure that just like me sometime in your childhood you enjoyed a sweet glass of this creamy milk. I love to serve it as a quick and easy chilled surprise for the kids and hubby especially during the spring and summer months. Fresh Peach Tea, Blueberry Lemonade, Caramel Frappuccino and this recipe are just a few of our favorite chill down beverages.

1/2 cgranulated sugar

How to Make Strawberry Milk
- Add the strawberries, water, and sugar to a saucepan and simmer gently for about 10-12 minutes.
- Strain the strawberries and juice through a fine mesh strainer gently pressing the strawberries against the mesh to extract as much of the juice as possible.
- Let it cool down for 10-15 minutes. Add 2-3 tablespoons of the syrup to a well chilled glass of milk and stir to combine.
- If desired add 1-2 drops red food coloring per glass and a little bit of whipped cream.
