Homemade Strawberry Milk: Better Than a Powdered Mix

Homemade Strawberry Milk made without any artificial ingredients. Your kids will love it!

Have you ever had strawberry milk from a powdered mix? 

You know what I’m talking about, right? That Nesquik chemical concoction? Check out the label on the box and you will find that NOWHERE is there any mention of strawberries.

None. Nada. Zippo. {I was going to put the ingredients here on the site, but I was worried I’d be sued. Seriously.}

I love strawberry milk. My mom would buy it for me and she still buys it for my girls. 

So I did a little research into whole food homemade strawberry milk. And there are lots of recipes out there. But none are as simple as the one I’ve come up with.

I wouldn’t go so far as to call it genius, but if you wanted to… hey, I won’t stop you!

This is my secret ingredient:

Freeze Dried Strawberries

Freeze Dried Strawberries!!!!!

I love these guys as a sweet, whole food, low calorie, perfectly portable treat.

And now I love them as my secret ingredient in making quick and easy homemade whole food strawberry milk.

Check out how easy this recipe is:

Homemade Strawberry Milk


  • 1 cup freeze dried strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons honey (add more or less to taste)
  • 2 cups milk (may substitute any kind of milk here)


  1. Add freeze dried strawberries, honey and milk to a blender.
  2. Puree until all ingredients are well combined.
  3. Scrape down sides as needed.
  4. Makes 2 servings.

Oh. my. word! It is so delicious I do hope you will give it a try. And think of the possibilities! You could make banana milk, blueberry milk, apple milk… Ok. Someone else try apple milk and report back if it’s any good, will ya?

Homemade Strawberry Milk


  1. I wonder if you could dehydrate strawberry puree and then blend it to powder for a cheaper option? I haven’t tried drying strawberries yet, so I have no idea if it would work well or not.

  2. Amy, I just ordered the trays for my dehydrator. I’ll give it a try. Andrea

  3. This is genius! 🙂 So simple, and so good for you! Definitely going to try this! 🙂

    For _apple_ milk, I don’t bother scraping out the last of applesauce from the jar. Instead, I pour a cup or so of milk into the jar, put the lid back on, and shake vigorously. I may put a splash of maple syrup in for a sweeter treat. Foamy apple milk! My sons love it. So do I~ 😉

  5. I can’t wait to try apple milk Ilka! What a great use of the end of a jar! Thanks for sharing, Andrea
