How to make Korean Strawberry Milk

  1. Put the strawberries and sugar in a blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Pour the blended strawberry mixture into a saucepan, then add some water.
  3. Heat over medium-low heat until it reaches a low boil, then turn off the heat and let it cool for about 10 minutes.
  4. While the strawberry mixture is cooling, pour the milk into a bowl, add 1 tsp of vanilla extract and whisk in the cornstarch until it’s completely dissolved (it should be clear). Whisk in the sugar until combined well.
  5. Once your blended strawberry mixture has cooled, use a sieve to push it through into another bowl or pitcher. Discard any solids left behind in your sieve (you can compost them later).
  6. Add this pureed strawberry mixture to your previously-made cornstarch-sugar mixture and stir until combined well (you’ll have to stir vigorously because there will be clumps of cornstarch that haven’t dissolved yet).
  7. Chill in the refrigerator for at most an hour before serving!

Tips

Making your Korean strawberry milk is easy. Here are some tips to make it even easier:

  • Use a food processor or blender to chop up the strawberries. You don’t have to be super precise with this, but you don’t want chunks of strawberry that are too big in your milk.
  • Add the strawberries and about half of the sugar (about 2 tablespoons) to your blender or food processor. Then add 1/2 cup of water, plus either 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract or 1/4 teaspoon of almond extract (or both!). Blend until smooth.

Storage

  • To store your Korean strawberry milk, put it in the fridge. The milk will keep for up to five days.
  • If you want to make the milk last longer, try freezing it! Just let it thaw at room temperature before you drink it.

Health Benefits

Korean strawberry milk is a delicious beverage that is rich in nutrients and can benefit your health.

  • Strawberries are an excellent source of vitamin C, which helps boost your immune system and prevent diseases like the flu. Vitamin C is also important for skin health and can help your body create collagen—a protein that keeps skin smooth and firm.
  • Strawberries also contain antioxidants, which help prevent cell damage caused by free radicals. This means that consuming strawberries regularly can reduce the risk of conditions like heart disease, cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and other age-related diseases.
  • The calcium content in this drink also contributes to good bone health. Calcium helps keep bones strong by preventing them from becoming brittle or weak as we age. It also works with vitamin D to improve muscle function, which helps us move more easily throughout our daily lives.

FAQ

Is drinking strawberry milk good for you?

If you’re a fan of strawberry milk, the answer is yes! Milk is packed with nutrients, including protein and calcium.
Strawberry milk is made with regular cow’s milk, which contains about 8 grams of protein per cup. It also has lots of calcium—about 300 milligrams per cup—as well as other nutrients like vitamin D and potassium.
The good news is that strawberries are delicious! They’re high in fiber and antioxidants, so they help keep your digestive system functioning properly. They also contain vitamin C, which helps your body absorb iron from plant-based foods like spinach and kale.

Do strawberries and milk go together?

You bet they do!
You can’t go wrong with strawberries and milk. These two staples of summer are the perfect pair.
Strawberries are a delicious fruit that you can eat all year long, but they’re especially popular in the summer months when they’re at their peak of freshness. They have a refreshing sweetness that makes them great for snacking on after a long day at work or school. They also work well in recipes that call for berries, like smoothies and salads.
Milk is rich in calcium and vitamin D—two nutrients that help support overall health and wellness—and it’s also delicious! Milk goes well with many different types of food, including ice cream, cereal, pancakes and waffles, or even just by itself (that’s right—it’s OK to drink milk by itself).
So next time you’re looking for something sweet to eat after dinner (or before!), grab some strawberries and pour yourself some milk because these two foods go together like peanut butter and jelly!
