Strawberry season is here and I just can’t get enough of these perfectly ripe berries! After stocking up on a few pints from the grocery store, I was looking for something different to make.
You can make homemade Strawberry Milk with just about any kind of milk to fit your particular tastes or dietary needs. This time around I made it using vanilla almond milk to make a vegan version, and it turned out great!
