Milk Bar Strawberry Milk Recipe

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.

  1. That’s a very cool milk jug you have, and your measuring containers are quite interesting haha.

    Thanks! I love using scientific beakers to measure things.

    Quick question. I was wondering what plugins you use for these comments? I’m assuming you use WordPress and would like to know how you got the thread/nesting format with response email notifications.

    The plugin is called WordPress Thread Comment with a custom CSS.

  2. Nice! Strawberry Nesquick was my favorite growing up. I used to pour it all over my chocolate ice cream… chased it down with a big glass of strawberry milk. Good times!

    Ahh, if only my hardest decision now was between chocolate or strawberry Nesquick!

  3. My boyfriend loves Strawberry milk! I would love to make this for him, but wouldn’t even begin to know where to find Elderflower syrup. Was it hard for you to find?

    Amazon has some.

  5. What kind of blender is that? It’s so pretty!

    It’s a Breville hand held blender. They had it at Costco a while back.

  7. Is there a substitute for elderflower syrup?

    You can find elderflower syrup at Ikea or I think you could use the juice from a can of lychees. (Chang mentions it as a substitute in the book).

    don’t purchase the ikea eldferflower syrup (saft flader) anymore. they changed the recipe at the start of this year and dramatically altered the flavor. it no longer tastes of elderflower and is now very acidic, it doesn’t resemble the the product they previously sold at all.

  8. This is awesome. I’ve loved strawberry milk ever since I was a kid. I still get little bottles of Promised Land strawberry milk whenever I’m at the grocery store.

    Strawberry milk rocks!
