In this post I’m going to show you how to make strawberry water with milk. This has been a life saver for me in the morning after an intense workout or yoga session. Not only is this drink delicious, but it’s packed with antioxidants and vitamins.
Strawberry is one of my favorite summer fruits. So, this summer I’m going to share with you a super yummy and refreshing drink named strawberry water with milk.

Now that it’s May it’s warming up and so I’ve been making lots of yummy refreshing drinks. I prefer to make my own fresh juices and drinks. Not only is it a great way to use up fruit before it goes bad but I also get to control the amount of sugar that goes into my drink.
- Fresh strawberries
- sweetened condensed milk
- evaporated milk
- regular milk
How to make this beverage
Start by washing, hulling and chopping the strawberries. Then put the chopped strawberries in the blender along with 3 cups of water. Blend for a minute or until smooth.
Next pour the strawberry puree into a pitcher. You can strain it into the pitcher if you prefer. I don’t since the strawberry seeds don’t bother me.
Then pour the condensed milk, sugar, evaporated milk and regular milk in the blender and blend until smooth. Then also pour it into the pitcher and stir.
Also in case you don’t have evaporated milk you can just add more regular milk. I like 2% but you can use whole milk if you prefer.
Then serve over lots of ice. You could also pour lots of ice cubes directly into the pitcher but I prefer not to because it will dilute the drink.
Make sure to store the agua fresca in the refrigerator.
See super easy!

Homemade Strawberry Milk
This homemade strawberry milk is sweet, creamy and filled with real strawberries. With just 4 ingredients, this summery, nostalgic treat is very easy to make and will be loved by kids and adults alike.
- Quick and easy to make
- Full of real strawberry flavour
- Nostalgic and so delicious
This homemade strawberry milk tastes a bazillion times better than anything you can buy from the shop and, while I feel compelled to mention it would make a great after school snack for the kids, it’ll also make any strawberry loving adult very happy too.
This was my favourite milk drink when I was younger. I think my brother always drank spearmint and choc milk was good but nothing ever compared to a carton of strawberry milk. I knew I had to try to create this popular drink in my own kitchen.
It’s refreshing, it’s creamy and is filled with real strawberry flavour. And guess what?!! It’s super easy to make and only has 4 ingredients – all natural, healthy goodness.
Interesting to note too, that while it does contain sugar (which you can replace with a natural sweetener), strawberry milk is high in protein from the milk and vitamin C from strawberries, so you could definitely make a case for a daily glass of this goodness.
Ingredients for this strawberry milk recipe
- Strawberries: fresh strawberries or frozen strawberries work. If using fresh, make sure they’re at they’re peak ripeness, or use frozen instead.
- Sugar: since strawberries have natural sweetness you don’t need too much white sugar and you can even use other sweeteners.
- Vanilla extract: Pure vanilla extract actually amplifies the strawberry flavour. Use this over essence which is a synthetic flavouring.
- Milk: whole dairy milk gives a traditional flavour but you can use whatever milk you prefer. To make it dairy-free and vegan or vegetarian friendly try using cashew milk, almond milk, soy milk, coconut milk or oat milk.
Unlike many recipes that just make a strawberry syrup, and discard the strawberry pulp, I use a blender to puree the whole lot together, for two reasons. First, it increases the strawberry flavour and secondly, it cuts down on the need for extra sugar since the strawberries are naturally sweet.
How to make strawberry milk from scratch
- Heat together strawberries, sugar and a touch of water over low-medium heat, stirring it from time to time. Once the sugar has dissolved, some syrup is produced and the strawberries are soft, remove it from the heat.
- Let it cool a little, then blend the strawberry sauce in a blender until smooth.
- Strain the puree through a fine mesh strainer and discard the seeds. A second strain through muslin cloth gives an even smoother result.
- Once totally cool, mix the puree with milk and vanilla.
- Give the milk a shake or stir before serving. Pour it into tall glasses and enjoy the fresh, sweet strawberry flavour.
Serve it cold. This milk will keep well in the refrigerator for 3-4 days and also makes great popsicles.
Turn it into a strawberry milkshake
Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to a blender with a glass full of strawberry milk. Blend then pour back into the glass, maybe topped with a little whipped cream. Voila!
Scrumptious homemade Strawberry milk is a super easy four ingredient sweet creamy treat that will blast you back to the past. Food can be so wonderfully nostalgic. I am sure that just like me sometime in your childhood you enjoyed a sweet glass of this creamy milk.
I love to serve it as a quick and easy chilled surprise for the kids and hubby especially during the spring and summer months. Fresh Peach Tea, Blueberry Lemonade, Caramel Frappuccino and this recipe are just a few of our favorite chill down beverages.
WHY THIS RECIPE WORKS!
- This milk is so delicious that you will wonder how in the world you have made it this long without it!
- Keep it all natural by skipping the dye or using all natural dye made from plants, vegetables and seeds.
- With just a few ingredients and a few minutes of effort this recipe is all yours. It is easy enough that the tweens can help with this one.
HOW TO MAKE STRAWBERRY MILK
Simply add the water, sugar, and strawberries to a saucepan and simmer gently for about 10-12 minutes. Then simply strain the strawberries and juice through a fine mesh strainer gently pressing the strawberries against the mesh to extract as much of that beautiful juice as possible. Let it chill down for a little bit and then pour a couple of tablespoons into a well chilled glass of milk and stir to combine. If desired add 1-2 drops red food coloring and a little pop of whipped cream.
RECIPE NOTES AND HELPFUL TIPS
- Both fresh and frozen strawberries work well with this recipe.
- The milk turns a pale pink so if you want a little more color add a few drops of food coloring.
- McCormick sells natural food coloring made from plants, veggies and seeds.
- Store the strawberry syrup in the fridge in a sealable container like a mason jar for up to 2 weeks. That way you can use it to make a quick glass at a moments notice.
- I prefer whole milk with this recipe but 2% will work as well however it will not be as creamy. If you have any half and half or cream in the refrigerator add a little splash and stir to combine.
- Don’t be too quick to throw out those mashed strawberries. They are delicious in a bowl of greek yogurt, vanilla ice cream or even cottage cheese.
