What is strawberry milk?
Strawberry milk is prepared by mixing strawberry syrup or sauce with chilled milk. Unlike strawberry milkshake this milk has thinner consistency and does not use ice cream. Also you can make the syrup smooth or chunky as preferred.
In this recipe I have used raw cane sugar to prepare strawberry syrup. You can use regular sugar or even honey. I have mentioned some variations to prepare this drink easily below.
Variations with strawberry milk recipe:
- You can use honey instead of sugar. While using do not cook it along with strawberries. Cook the strawberries until reduced and then add honey after the syrup cools down a bit.
- Here I have just chopped the berries to make chunky strawberry syrup. If you want a smooth syrup you can blend the strawberries to a smooth puree and then make syrup.
- If you have strawberry jam handy you can make strawberry milk easily by just mixing chilled milk with it
Once you prepare the strawberry syrup you can store it refrigerated for about a week and use as required.
Few other uses of strawberry syrup are listed below.
- You can use this syrup as pancake or waffle topping.
- We can use this to make refreshing strawberry soda by mixing with sparkling water.
- You can make quick smoothie by blending with yogurt and some milk
- Finally you can also this to make mock tail, use a ice cream topping also.
This cold strawberry milk is an excellent after school beverage for kids. Healthy, delicious and fun!
