A strawberry syrup made from freshly cooked strawberries and added to cold milk.


Units Scale

For the Syrup

  • 1 pound fresh strawberries, rinsed, hulled and quartered
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon pure Vanilla extract

For the Strawberry Milk

  • Milk for mixing with syrup


  1. Add strawberries, sugar, water and vanilla to a medium saucepan. Mix to combine. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat and simmer until strawberries are soft, about ten minutes. Remove from heat.
  2. Pour strawberry mixture into a fine mesh strainer that’s placed over a bowl. Use a potato masher to mash the strawberries and extract as much syrup as possible. Place syrup in a refrigerator until thoroughly chilled.
  3. Add 1/4 cup of syrup to one cup of cold milk. Mix well.
  4. Store syrup in the refrigerator. Use within one week.


  • Strawberry syrup can be used for pouring over ice cream, pancakes, french toast or spreading on biscuits. It can also be mixed with butter to make strawberry butter.
