Strawberry Milk

Strawberry Milk

My 204th recipe, “Strawberry Milk”, a easy and healthy drink for your kids. While I was growing up, I was not very fond of sodas or juices. Among the drinks I loved, flavored milk was always on top of the list. I used to especially like the chocolate milk and strawberry milk which came in tetra packs or small bottles. However it has been a long time since I had one of them 🙁 Now-a-days I started enjoying more cold coffees and milkshakes and that is what I end up making most of the times at home. However, this time around I wanted to rekindle some of the fond memories of my childhood. Unlike a strawberry milkshake which is very creamy with the addition of ice cream, this strawberry milk is thinner and healthier. It is also very easy to make. You just have to make the strawberry syrup once and store it in the refrigerator. And for the next few days whenever you or your kids are thirsty, it is as simple as blending some of the syrup with cold milk and you would have a healthy cold drink within seconds 🙂

This takes me right back to my childhood! I'm lactose intolerant, so my parents bought me either Lactaid or Silk soymilk. I didn't like the taste, so they'd always mix it with strawberry syrup for me! But I love how this version is all-natural! :D
