Spring has sprung. It’s finally here!
The markets are bustling with activity, new produce is livening up the market carts, and I know I’m not the only one that’s ready to get in on the apricot, strawberry, cherry and asparagus action around here.
It’s a bit too early in the season for strawberries, but at $3.00 for a 30 ounce package, I just couldn’t resist. I nibbled on a couple as I drove home from the store the other day, dreaming up ways I was going to bake them into my life.
First up? Strawberry milk.
I’ve wanted to make strawberry milk for as long as I can remember. It was one of my favorite treats as a kid. Most of my pals went for chocolate milk, but not me. I was a strawberry milk gal through and through. Combine that with my burning curiosity of making coconut milk from the various random bags of shredded coconut I have laying around the house, and you have yourself a recipe winner!
This stuff is dessert quality. It’s ultra-creamy, smooth and satisfying. It’s sweet, good warm, good cold, good hot. Just good.
Bring on the Spring!
All you have to do is boil the strawberries with the sugar and vanilla. Add it to a blender, blend, strain and you’re good to go.
You could use the pulp for all sorts of things. I’ve been adding mine to smoothies, eating it as a snack (you think it’s weird but this stuff tastes amazing!) and spreading it on apple slices.
Really, you need to make this now.
I enjoy your comments so very much and I know everyone in our community does, too.
Now it’s your turn… what’s one childhood treat that you’ve been dying to recreate to fit your current eating style?
What dairy-free milks do you use in your home… why?
