Homemade Strawberry Malted Milk made with fresh strawberries . . . This drink will make you feel like a kid again!
When I was a kid I loved Strawberry Nesquik milk. So, when I decided to play around with a malted milk recipe I knew I wanted to go with a strawberry flavor. I was not disappointed, this Strawberry Malted Milk transported me right back to that seven year old little girl with the bad hair cut and a gap tooth smile.
For me, it doesn’t get much better than those carefree mornings that I spent eating Honey Smacks and drinking Strawberry Nesquik while watching Saturday cartoons. That was considered a perfectly healthy breakfast back in the 80’s!
Yes, I am officially an old fogey reminiscing about the good ol’ days.
This is the grown up version of my favorite childhood drink. I use coconut milk, but the type of milk completely depends on your preference. Add some malted milk powder, sugar and fresh strawberry puree for a delicious taste of the good ol’ days. This isn’t just for adults though, the kiddos will love it too!
- 2 Tb Malted Milk Powder*
- 1-2 Tb Ultrafine Sugar, to taste
- 1 tsp Vanilla Paste
- 5-6 Large Strawberries, 1/2 cup pureed
- 2½ cups Vanilla Coconut Milk **, or milk of choice
- Puree all ingredients using a blender, processor or immersion blender.
- Pour liquid through a mesh strainer to remove most of the seeds.
- Transfer to glasses and Enjoy!
*I used Carnation Malted Milk. You can find it in the aisle with the chocolate milk powders and syrups.
**I use all coconut milk or half coconut milk and half dairy milk. Use whichever type of milk that you prefer.
