If you have some extra strawberries you need to use up, and you're not in the mood for smoothies, try this refreshing drink that tastes like childhood. Plus, you get an extra bite of strawberry with every sip.
This drink takes literally a few minutes to make, so it's perfect for a quick snack. The best part is that you can store the strawberry syrup in the refrigerator for up to two weeks, so you can make the syrup in bulk ahead of time!
Dairy-Free Strawberry Milk
1.5 cups strawberries, diced (if frozen, blend them up)
1/2 cup sugar
1 pinch of salt
plant milk (I like a creamier blend, like oatmilk)
In a small saucepan, add 1 cup strawberries, sugar, and salt.
Simmer mixture until the berries break down into a syrup. Stir for 3 minutes (or until ingredients have broken down into a syrup). Then add rest of diced strawberries into pan and stir for 1 minute.
Set syrup aside to cool (or chill until ready to drink).
To assemble drink, pour into a cup strawberry syrup, then your choice of plant milk, and top off with ice. Stir together. For a more sweeter drink add in more syrup.
