My kids absolutely love strawberry milk, however with ingredients like these…
We absolutely do not drink this version in our house. However, I really love to be able to treat them to special drinks, so I started thinking how can I give them a similar drink and feel better about it. I tried a strawberry smoothie and they still kept asking me for the milk version that some of their friends drink – it seemed to be a texture and thickness issue. So, I experimented a bit and I came up with this, and it’s been a hit ever since!

What You Will Need
How to Make
Wash and slice the strawberries place in a mixing bowl and coat with the sugar. Let it sit for 10-15 minutes, or until juices run off the berry.
Then add the milk, cover, and refrigerate over night (if you’re in a hurry, you can go right to the blending — but it’s better after a good soak!). In the morning, place all ingredients in the blender and and whirl until smooth.
Next, put the mixture through your cone shaped strainer to remove pulp and seeds.
There you have a perfectly smooth and milky sweetened milk with no high frutose corn syrup and no artificial flavors or sweeteners! The healthier version of Hershey’s strawberry milk.
