All About this Berrylicious Drink 

I’ve mastered making non-dairy milk from scratch, but this Vegan Strawberry Milk Recipe is so much more fun! It blends fresh summer strawberries with plant milk, yogurt, vanilla, lemon, and maple syrup to give every sip the perfect balance of creamy, fruity sweetness. You won’t find any refined sugars, powders, or strawberry syrup in here either—nothing but healthy, all-natural ingredients!

With its delicious strawberries and cream flavor, you’ll actually look forward to making strawberry milk and using it in your bowl of cereal, homemade oatmeal, fruit smoothies, and more.

What You Need for Healthy Strawberry Milk

You’ll need just 7 easy-to-find ingredients to make this simple and sweet recipe:

  • Strawberries: fresh, preferably! The best fresh strawberries will pop up at farmer’s markets and grocery stores from early spring through late summer. If it isn’t strawberry season where you live, you can make this with frozen strawberries instead (thawed, then patted dry).
  • Milk: opt for thick and creamy non-dairy milk, like soy milk or oat milk. Or, make your own!
  • Yogurt: this is optional but gives the strawberry milk a thicker, more luxurious consistency. Try to use unsweetened dairy-free yogurt so the milk isn’t overly sweet.
  • Lemon Juice: freshly squeezed lemon juice adds a nice tartness that balances the sweeter flavors.
  • Maple Syrup: this all-natural sweetener makes the strawberry milk taste sweet and well-balanced. Agave syrup works well, too.

How to Make Vegan Strawberry Milk

  1. Blend the strawberries, milk, yogurt, maple syrup, vanilla, lemon juice, and salt in a high-speed blender until smooth.
  2. Taste the milk and adjust the sweetness, if necessary.
  3. Serve immediately, or place it in the refrigerator if you’d rather serve it chilled.

Caitlin’s Cooking Tips

  • Liquid sweeteners are the way to go: Liquid sweeteners blend seamlessly into the milk, like maple syrup or agave. Granulated sugar, like white sugar or cane sugar, will give the milk a grainy texture. 
  • Adjust the sweetness to your liking: You can make the strawberry milk slightly sweeter by either blending in 1 or 2 more tablespoons of maple syrup or by using sweetened non-dairy milk and/or yogurt. If you don’t have much of a sweet tooth, start by blending in 1 tablespoon of maple syrup, then adding more as needed.

Serving Suggestions

Regular non-dairy milk is fine, but strawberry milk adds a sweet and fruity flavor wherever it’s used! Pour it over a bowl of cereal in the morning, blend it into a strawberry and banana smoothie, use it as a base for these Strawberry Overnight Oats or this Strawberries and Cream Oatmeal, or pour it into this Matcha Latte. You can also just enjoy it by the glass!

How to Store Vegan Strawberry Milk

It’s best to store the milk in a clean glass jar with an airtight lid. Airtight containers work, too, but they aren’t as easy to pour from.

Store the milk in the fridge for up to 5 days. Give it a good shake before serving, as the blended strawberries may separate from the milk.

You can also freeze the milk in ice cube trays for longer storage. Transfer the frozen cubes to an airtight container and freeze them for up to 3 months. Blend the strawberry milk cubes into smoothies or thaw as many as you need, then add them to your desired recipes.

Recipe FAQs

Is vegan strawberry milk healthy?

I’d say so! Fresh strawberries are a wonderful source of vitamin C and antioxidants, while maple syrup keeps the recipe free from refined sugars.

Should I use fresh or frozen strawberries to make strawberry milk?

Personally, I love strawberry milk made with fresh, local, and in-season strawberries. However, frozen strawberries will work in a pinch. I recommend thawing the berries first, then patting them dry with a paper towel before blending so the milk isn’t too watery.

Can I use a different fruit?

Yes, absolutely! This recipe works just as well with raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, and pitted cherries.
