Today we need to have a talk. A little talk about strawberry love and pink milk. In this house we have a thing for all kinds of berries (I even have a Pinterest board called Berries Thrill Me).

Thankfully here in Southern California bright red strawberries are abundant pretty much year round. Our ground does not freeze and the crops keep coming. This time of year they are at their peak! There are a few strawberry farms within a mile of our house.

Thank goodness…

The only thing we need to worry about is what to do with all this strawberry bliss. We love our Citrus Roasted Strawberry Parfaits. Have you had a chance to roast strawberries yet? If no then you must. You could roast them for this pink milk or you can heat them in a saucepan instead. That is what I did here.

You house will smell amazing when you do this. I can assure you that.

This milk can easily be vegan, simple use coconut milk, almond milk, soy or rice.

If you are into dairy then use cows milk. Goats milk would be tasty too. You could make it super thick with some kefir too. Yum!

I believe Alice would like this strawberry milk. Perhaps I should invite her for a tea party some day… (by the way I have an Alice in Wonderland pin board too, in case you were curious)

When you blend this drink it forms a beautiful, thick frothy crema. A cream that sticks around even if you store it in the fridge for a few hours.

This healthy treat is pretty much a smoothie with no ice. Add the ice if you want a strawberry shake kinda thing. You can top with a dollop of vanilla, strawberry or chocolate whipped cream.

The yield is one cup of strawberry purée which is great stirred into oatmeal, parfaits. It is also wonderful as a pancake or french toast sauce…
