As a little girl I remember having Strawberry milk as a yummy treat. I remember buying it when I was pregnant with my children too.
Guess what... you and I don't have to buy it anymore! :)
I've got a recipe so we can now make it with our own ingredients for a much healthier snack! Woot!
Don't forget the homemade chocolate syrup recipe that we use too!
1 cup Frozen Strawberries
1/2 cup Water
1/2 cup Sugar
1-2 Tbsp. Vanilla
In saucepan add strawberries, water and sugar and boil for about 10 minutes... the mixture will thicken.
Once reduced and thickened, remove from heat.
Stir in vanilla and strain out chunks of berries.
**You can use the strained berries for yogurt or oatmeal.**
Once your jar is cool, you can store in the refrigerator for a couple of weeks (if it lasts that long) ;)
Your syrup is awesome in milk, but you can use it elsewhere too!
On top of ice cream, yogurt, oatmeal, pudding... or eat it by the spoonful!
Also, I want to take a minute to THANK YOU for all the kind words from yesterday's blogaversary post! You are all so sweet! I truly have enjoyed these past 4 years of blogging. There were times that I hit some rough patches, but blogging is truly a fun and sunny spot in my day.
