Korean Strawberry Milk

This fresh and delicious Korean strawberry milk is addictive and is a popular summer drink in Korea. The fresh made syrup with chunks of fresh strawberries makes a huge difference in flavor. I can guarantee that you won't be buying any more syrups once you try this.

This Korean strawberry milk recipe is very easy to follow. Fresh strawberries are used to make the syrup and the extra chunks give great texture. This will taste amazing as it is made with fresh ingredients. Fresh and homemade is always better. No it is BEST! All you need is strawberries, syrup, and cold milk. Yes! Just 3 ingredients.

Most of the times we have this always in our fridge. Myself and my daughter love this milk and we also use it to make strawberry matcha latte. This syrup helps in making a snack sized drink too! Delicious and satisfying....all in one! I have used chilled cow milk but feel free to use plant based milk too. I love this coconut and soymilk too. This is my daughter's recipe. We referred to Drive Me Hungry, My Korean Kitchen, Milk and Pop, and made our version suiting the sugar needs, and is a combination of these. Adjust sugar and amount of strawberries as per your preference. The quantity of syrup used is according to personal preferences, from 2-4 tbsp. Add some ice cubes if you prefer.
