Healthy Homemade 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.

Healthy Homemade Strawberry Milk

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  :)

DIY Strawberry Syrup

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. In a medium-sized bowl, stir together the strawberries, 6 tbs of water, food coloring and extracts.
  2. Stir in the corn starch.
  3. Pour mixture into a small pot and place over medium/high heat.
  4. Bring to a simmer and simmer for ~13 minutes, or until thickened and strawberries are extremely soft.
  5. 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.
