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.
