I made this recipe up several years ago one night when I was hungry but didn't want to eat food food because it was too late, and I didn't want that ate-too-late-stomach-ache.
It's refreshing, satisfying, and just filling enough. It tastes similar to Nestle Strawberry Quik, but without that artificial flavor aspect--tastes like fresh strawberries.
I'm not even a huge strawberry fan, but for some reason, every once in a while, this hits the spot.
- 1/2 cup (approximately) frozen sliced strawberries
- 2-3 teaspoons sugar (depending on how sweet you like your milk)
- 1 cup milk (I used 1%)
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
Place all ingredients in a blender or a tall plastic cup (if you're using a hand blender). Blend until strawberries are completely pureed into the milk.
Pour into a glass and drink with a straw.
