🥣How To Make Strawberry Flavored Almond Milk
1️⃣ Step One: Combine the ingredients
Add the almond milk and freeze-dried strawberries to a high-speed blender.
2️⃣ Step Two: Blend the strawberry milk
Pulse the blender a few times to break up the strawberries to break up the mixture, then blend on medium-high speed until smooth and creamy.
3️⃣ Step Three: Sweeten to taste (OPTIONAL)
Depending on how sweet your freeze-dried strawberries are, you may or not need to add your favorite sweeteners such as honey, agave, maple syrup, or sugar to taste.
👩🏻🍳 Recipe Tips
- If your strawberries are not breaking down in the blender, you may want to grind them up dry in a coffee grinder to form a powder that can easily be blended into the milk.
- For best results, pulse the ingredients first before a continuous blend for creamy and smooth milk.
- Serve cold or over ice for an iced cold refreshing drink with sliced strawberries for garnish.
- Unsweetened strawberry milk: The strawberries have a natural sweetness that doesn’t contain any refined sugar. Omit any honey, agave, or maple syrup to keep it naturally sweetened.
- Strawberry banana milk: Add a sliced banana to the mix for a strawberry banana flavored almond milk.
- Chocolate strawberry milk: Add two tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder to make a chocolate strawberry-flavored drink.
- Using other plant-based milk: Instead of almond milk, try using cashew milk, oat milk, flax milk, hemp milk, or coconut milk to blend with the freeze-dried strawberries.
- Use flavor extracts: Change up the flavor by adding a few drops of vanilla extract, maple, almond, or coconut.
- Make it minty: Blend the milk with a drop of peppermint extract or fresh mint for strawberry mint milk.
Use it to make a strawberry smoothie with your favorite fruits and protein powder.
Toss a handful of fresh or frozen strawberries into your blender along with the almond milk for an extra strawberry flavor and thicker consistency.
Pour it over cereal, granola, or oatmeal as a strawberry milk alternative.
Sip on it plain as is or use it in recipes that call for dairy milk.
Add a pinch of sea salt to balance the sweetness and bring out the flavor of the strawberries even more.
🧊How To Store
