Flavoured milk brings me back to my childhood, probably because the last time I had flavoured milk was when I was 10. At the grocery store, I used to sneak Nesquik into the shopping cart; not like my mom’s hawk-eyes didn’t see, she just pretended not to notice.
I found a video of Tosi making strawberry milk on Serious Eats and with strawberries in season and my favourite childhood cartoon, Strawberry Shortcake on my mind, I decided to whip up a batch. This strawberry milk recipe is not grown-up in taste – it has a lot of sugar – but it is a pretty delicious trip down memory lane.
