With fresh strawberries at their peak, homemade Strawberry Milk will be a household favorite for kids of every age.


  • 1 qt. fresh hulled strawberries
  • 3 to 4 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 to 4 cups cold milk

How to Make It

  1. Process strawberries and sugar in a blender or food processor until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides as needed. Press mixture through a wire-mesh strainer into a medium bowl, using back of a spoon to squeeze out juice; discard pulp. Stir in vanilla and salt. Stir strawberry mixture into cold milk. Chill 1 hour before serving. Refrigerate up to 3 days.

  2. Spiked Strawberry Milk: Stir in 1/4 cup strawberry liqueur (such as De Kuyper Wild Strawberry) just before serving.
