Strawberries and Cream Milk Recipe

With just a few ingredients and no blender needed, you can make a refreshing glass of strawberry-flavored milk.

Ingredients (full recipe below)

  • Crushed ice
  • Fresh strawberries
  • Whole milk–You could also use lower-fat milk if you prefer.
  • Vanilla syrup
  • Strawberry extract

Preparing the Strawberries

To prepare the strawberries, be sure to wash them thoroughly and gently pat them dry. After you have washed the strawberries, remove the leafy green parts of the berries. This is called ‘hulling’ the strawberries. Instead of simply cutting off the tops straight across, insert a sharp knife at an angle and rotate the strawberry in a circle until the stem pulls out. I sliced the strawberries for this recipe.

How to Make Strawberries and Cream Milk

Once you have the strawberries washed and sliced, mix together the milk, vanilla syrup, and strawberry extract. You can stir it together in a bowl or a pitcher.

To make the drinks, evenly distribute the crushed ice and sliced strawberries into two glasses (filled each up about halfway). Pour the milk mixture into each glass, filling it up to the top. Serve chilled and enjoy!

What is Vanilla Syrup?

Vanilla Syrup is what is adding to flavored coffee drinks. If you have ever ordered a Vanilla Latte they added vanilla syrup to it. It is basically a concentrated version of simple syrup with vanilla flavoring or vanilla bean added to it. If you don’t want to make simple syrup you can also use maple syrup is a substitute.

Do You Have to Use Whole Milk?

If you don’t happen to have whole milk you can use skim or 2%. You can also use almond milk. However, you may want to add some heavy cream to thicken.
