Homemade Strawberry Milk

When I was a little girl, my grandfather drank a lot of homemade strawberry milk every May when fresh local strawberries were abundant.  Now, I love to make this for my kids.  More accurately, I love letting them make this for themselves.  Recall all of your happy chocolate milk moments, then imagine fresh strawberries macerated in a little sugar and stirred into milk.  It’s deliciously simple.  On the days we go to pick strawberries, we come home and enjoy a cup of this almost immediately.  I also generally make homemade strawberry ice cream, but the strawberry milk is our instant gratification.  We love it, and I hope you do too!

Notes:

Macerated strawberries are a delicious start to many desserts: homemade strawberry milk, homemade strawberry ice cream and/or strawberry shortcake.  They can be kept in a refrigerator for a few days at most.

This is more of a guessipe than a recipe.  Use as much or as little sugar as you like, choose your type of milk, and chop the strawberries to your desired coarseness.  Add as many of the strawberries to your milk as you like.  The below directions are more of a guideline than anything else.

This is the serrated chopper I use, it’s perfect for the job!

  1. I am curious if this recipe will also taste good without the sugar. I am also thinking that blueberries would be pretty interesting.

    • Hi Elise,
      Yes, I think this would be delicious with blueberries – great idea! I think the sugar can be left out, or you could use a sugar substitute. Maybe try adding 3/4 of your fruit to the milk, reserving the rest to macerate with the sugar in case you want to add a little back in after tasting. Thanks again for the blueberry idea!
