A Valentine Treat

For Valentine's Day, I made my girl a special treat...strawberry milk. She LOVED it. Pink milk was a huge hit around here. After a busy week, I didn't plan a lot for Valentine's Day, but making this sweet, pink milk made her day a little more special.

Super easy and minus the artificial shit... this milk is perfect for serving up some love!

All you need is water, sugar, strawberries, and milk! I use frozen strawberries that I always have in my freezer for Kay's smoothies.

First, make your strawberry simple syrup. Strain it. Let it cool. Mix with milk. Look how pretty pink it is! Special milk for your special little one.

Homemade Pink Milk
1 cup of water
1 cup of fresh or frozen strawberries (cleaned and hulled)
1/2 cup of sugar

Boil water, strawberries, and sugar over medium high heat for about 10 minutes. After it is thickened, strain the syrup in a mesh strainer over a bowl or measuring cup. You don't want the strawberry seeds in your milk! Once the syrup is cooled, mix it with a tall glass of milk. The more syrup the sweeter the milk and the prettier the pink! Enjoy on Valentine's Day or any day!
