Homemade Korean Strawberry Milk
Homemade Korean strawberry milk is made with fresh chunks of strawberries & homemade strawberry syrup made of pureed strawberries. A favorite Korean drink made with fresh strawberries!
Servings: 2 16 ounce drinks
- 1 ¼ cups strawberries fresh or frozen can be used
- ¼ cup sugar use less if you prefer your drinks less sweet
- ¾ cup fresh strawberries cut into pieces, about 1 cm or 1/3 inch
- 2 cups any milk of choice (recommend coconut milk) I used coconut milk
Puree the 1¼ cups of strawberries using a blender, food processor, or masher. If using frozen strawberries, you can thaw them a bit in the microwave or use a high speed blender.
In a small pot, add the strawberry puree, sugar, and a third of the cut strawberry pieces. Heat until it comes to a boil. Let it boil for 1 minute, turn off the heat, and let it cool on the counter or chill in the refrigerator. (Note: You can opt to skip the boiling step but I recommend you consume this the day of making it. The puree will also be more thin and watery but will have more fresh strawberry flavor as it's not heated.)
Take two 16 ounce glasses and add half of the cooled strawberry puree and half of the remaining cut strawberry pieces into each glass. Swirl it up and around the glass to make a pattern. Next pour half of your milk of choice into each glass and serve immediately. Optional: top with whipped cream.
- The cooked strawberry puree can be kept in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days.
- Serve immediately once the puree and strawberry pieces are combined with the milk.
