Doesn't it remind you of your childhood? It looks so pretty. It's Strawberry Milk!

Made with homemade Strawberry Syrup. None of that bottled stuff.
I was inspired to make this by a post on The Kitchn. I couldn't wait to try it. During my childhood I never liked chocolate milk, anything chocolate or candy per se. I used to be a weird kid.

But I've always wanted to try Strawberry Milk, so I bought a bottle of syrup. It was good, not great. As soon as a I saw this recipe, literally ran to the kitchen to make it.

It's so easy, and it'll only take 10 minutes of your time. I promise!  

Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients

1 cups sliced frozen Strawberries
1/2 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Water
1/4 tsp Vanilla (optional)

Step 2: Procedure

Picture of Procedure

-In a sauce pan, add the water, sugar and strawberries and boil for 10-12 minutes. The mixture will reduce and thicken a bit.

-After they're done, strain the mixture. Use the leftover fruit to eat with yogurt or ice cream, don't just throw it away.

-Wait until it cools , then add 3 tbsp to 8 ounces of chilled milk.

Enjoy your drink! 

Pour the syrup over ice cream, oatmeal, yogurt or granola.

Instead of strawberries, I used raspberries. It still turned out great. I'll have to try it with strawberries though. Thanks!

You could probably cheat and thin down some strawberry jam with hot water, then use that. Jam is basically what you're making when you boil berries with sugar, after all ;)
