Homemade Strawberry Milk and Strawberry Syrup | Vegan, Low Fat, Paleo

Healthy Homemade Strawberry Milk

I don’t know about you, but I used to drink that sugar syrup Hershey’s strawberry syrup to make strawberry milk allll the time as a kid.  I hated milk back then, so the syrup made it tolerable for me.  But then again, sugar kinda makes everything tolerable…

Remember that sweet pink drink from your childhood? Now you can make it again, guilt-free, thanks to this fat free, refined sugar free, and vegan Healthy Homemade Strawberry Milk recipe!

So I made some homemade strawberry syrup, just without the artificial food coloring, artificial flavorings, high fructose corn syrup and refined sugar!

Use this healthy homemade strawberry syrup to make healthy homemade strawberry milk!

I could drink this EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

It’s that good, and I’m sure you will too  😉
