Strawberry milk – The old fashioned naturally pink, sweet milk made from scratch without any artificial color, chemical additives or pink powders.
If you are the old gen kid who grew up drinking the artificial pink like Rooh afsa, synthetic rose milk ( with fake essence) and other so called healthy pink drinks that was cloyingly sweet and thought that was bliss wait till you try this real deal! You are going to be pleasantly surprised by this fruity, fragrant clean milk.
This homemade strawberry milk is full of fresh fruit flavor with the velvety & creamy full fat dairy milk. Since strawberry comes from the rose family it has similar fragrance notes . Instead of sliced berry few rose petals could be added to the milk and served as rose milk. Or turned into milk shake with a scoop of ice cream or a whipped cream topping. You may substitute it with other plant based milk but the old world charm of drink full fat milk is the best.
I am sure the older generation might appreciate this drink better as this brings back sweet memories. Only difference now is you have learned to make your own and enjoy fresh homemade flavored milk.
