Remember drinking strawberry milk as a kid, that irresistibly pink sweet drink that had a great strawberry taste, but was full of artificial flavors and artificial colors and words that you can barely pronounce? My daughter saw it in the grocery store with me the other day, and begged me to bring some home. I told her we would try making our own instead!
After a little experimenting in the kitchen, I came up with this tasty recipe. It contains only 4 easy ingredients (one being water), and makes your house smell simply amazing! I was inspired by this recipe, but I have to admit, my finished recipe looks nothing like the original. I cut way back on the sugar, because I think strawberries are pretty sweet and tasty themselves without adding too much sugar. Next time I think I could get away with adding even less sugar!
Not only is this drink totally delicious, but it also is a great drink for Valentine’s Day with its’ pretty pink color. Make yourself a nice glass of strawberry milk today! You know you want to. This recipe makes one glass full.
