- Free from artificial flavors and colors

- Strawberries: What’s great about this recipe is that you can use any kind of strawberry. I personally like using freeze dried as they pack the most intense flavor having been dried. Fresh real strawberries or frozen (and thawed) strawberries will also work. It just won’t be as intense of a color or flavor.
- Dairy Free Milk: Use your favorite dairy free milk to make this recipe. In these photos, I used coconut milk and it was almost like a milkshake. It was so thick! Soy milk, oat milk, almond milk, etc also work great.
- Sugar or Maple Syrup: Use either sweetener to make it a touch bit sweet. You can also swap in coconut sugar, agave, or your sweetener of choice. I don’t recommend brown sugar as it can bring too much molasses flavor.
- Vanilla: A tiny splash of vanilla helps to balance out the flavor of strawberry and makes it sweeter and richer.
Make sure that you use a good, allergy friendly vanilla extract. Many times they have wheat, corn, or sugar based alcohol. You can find one of my favorites over on my shop page!
While this is a strawberry milk recipe, you can technically do this with any type of freeze dried fruit! Blueberry, raspberry, pineapple, mango, or any kind you like!
To transform this into a strawberry milkshake, add two scoops of your favorite vanilla dairy free ice cream and blend when you add the milk. Top with whipped cream and you have the best milkshake.
If you really love the fresh strawberry flavor, you can add strawberry chunks to the bottom of the glass. Just cut them into smaller pieces so the straw can pick them up.

Start by placing ll the ingredients into the blender or food processor. On medium speed, blend until smooth.
Tip! No matter what type of strawberry mixture you are using, you can eliminate any small pieces or seeds by sifting the milk through a strainer. This is a personal preference as some people may not mind the seeds, but I typically do this extra step for a smoother texture.
Pour into a glass with ice cubes and serve immediately. You can garnish with coconut whip cream or more strawberries. Enjoy!
Tip! I recommend using a nice wide straw to drink this with, like these glass straws. They are super easy to clean and are totally allergy friendly.
