Today we need to have a talk. A little talk about strawberry love and pink milk. In this house we have a thing for all kinds of berries (I even have a Pinterest board for Berries).

Thankfully here in Southern California bright red strawberries are abundant pretty much year round. Our ground does not freeze and the crops keep coming. This time of year they are at their peak! There are a few strawberry farms within a mile of our house. Thank goodness…

The only thing we need to worry about is what to do with all this strawberry bliss. We love our Citrus Roasted Strawberry Parfaits. Have you had a chance to roast strawberries yet? If no then you must. You could roast them for this pink milk or you can heat them in a saucepan instead. That is what I did here.

You house will smell amazing when you do this. I can assure you that.

This milk can easily be vegan, simple use coconut milk, almond milk, soy or rice. If you are into dairy then use cows milk. Goats milk would be tasty too. You could make it super thick with some kefir too. Yum!

I believe Alice would like this strawberry milk. Perhaps I should invite her for a tea party some day… (by the way I have an Alice in Wonderland pin board too, in case you were curious)

When you blend this drink it forms a beautiful, thick frothy crema. A cream that sticks around even if you store it in the fridge for a few hours.

This healthy treat is pretty much a smoothie with no ice. Add the ice if you want a strawberry shake kinda thing. You can top with a dollop of vanilla, strawberry or chocolate whipped cream.

The yield is one cup of strawberry purée which is great stirred into oatmeal, parfaits. It is also wonderful as a pancake or french toast sauce…

  1. A delightful drink! Thousand times better than the industrial kind, and healthier. The strawberries are very tasty this year…

    Cheers,

  2. I too love all things Alice – I have the very same glasses that my aunt gave me for Christmas – time for pink milk. Do you know the Charlie and Lola book I’m not tired and I will not go to bed? In that they have pink milk with three tigers

  3. Ooo, I’ve got to try this! Strawberry milk is so pretty and I am excited to have an alternative to the other powder stuff. Thank you lots. :)

    • Marina, great minds indeed. My kids have never seen the fake stuff and quite frankly I have never tried it either. Thank goodness! Thanks for stopping by.

  4. Marla. That is so pretty!
    Love my favorite berry. I made some pink milk with keifer and it was so yummy
    I love those glasses!

  5. This sounds great! I just bought 32oz of strawberries and I’ve been using them slowly (and uncreatively) all week. Perhaps this milk (or one of your roasted strawberry recipes) will be the way to go!

    • Thanks D!! I really have so much fun using the simplest of ingredients. Awesome to show folks how healthy and accessible great food can be :)

  6. Yum Marla…you just made me get all giddy inside. I love pink milk. Love it. I’ve never made it from fresh berries…and well, I’d never buy the powdered stuff now that I’m a Mom. You better bet this is going to be made in the next day! Bring on the pink milk. :) Great recipe darlin.

  7. My 3.5 year old son & I had a ton of fun making this and we got rave reviews :) Although, my presentation wasn’t quite as pretty…

    • Hi Calli, love that you made this strawberry milk with your sweet son :) My little boy is obsessed with this pink milk too. Hope you having a great weekend!

  8. Where did you get those glasses?? Those are perfection for my life, and the milk looks like just the thing make when I get home after this looong Friday.
