Healthy DIY Strawberry Syrup and Strawberry Milk
I don’t know about you, but I used to drink that
sugar syrup Hershey’s strawberry syrup in my milk allll the time as a kid. I hated milk, so the syrup made the healthy drink tolerable for me. But then again, sugar kinda makes everything tolerable.
So I made some homemade strawberry syrup, just without the artificial food coloring, artificial flavorings, high fructose corn syrup and refined sugar! I could drink this strawberry milk EVERY. DAY. It’s that good, and I’m sure you will too 🙂
- In a medium-sized bowl, stir together the strawberries, 6 tbs of water, food coloring and extracts.
- Stir in the corn starch.
- Pour mixture into a small pot and place over medium/high heat.
- Bring to a simmer and simmer for ~13 minutes, or until thickened and strawberries are extremely soft.
- Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve. Puree the strained mixture in a blender or small food processor with the 2-3 tsp of water, then pour into a jar and refrigerate overnight.
