Strawberry Milk

This recipe for strawberry milk from Smitten Kitchen tastes like a melted milkshake, and farm fresh milk and strawberries take this recipe to the next level. This treat is a sure bet with the little ones and will likely bring waves of nostalgia for the grow-ups, too. Grab your milk and buttermilk from T&R Dairy or Country Girl Creamery, plus some sweet strawberries from Johndale Farm, Mendez Farm, or Fletcher Farm or Faust Farm and whip up a batch.



  • 1 pound strawberries, trimmed and sliced
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 cup buttermilk


Mix strawberries and sugar in the bottom of a bowl (or even your blender’s bowl) and let them macerate for at least an hour, or until very syrupy. The more juice they exude now, the better. Blend strawberries and juices until smooth, then pour into a pitcher along with milk and buttermilk. Stir and let steep overnight in the fridge. In the morning, mix again if needed, and pour into glasses. Repeat as long as it lasts.
