Vegan Strawberry Milk

Just try and sip one glass! I dare you. Our vegan strawberry milk isn't only a hit with the kids it's a total winner with the adults on our house too. {www.beardandbonnet.com}

This one is totally for my kids…and your kids. Ok, and you and me because it’s delicious! You know what drives me crazy? When I see kids drinking milk chock-full of artificial flavorings and sweeteners. It really makes me cringe!

My daughter had never even heard of strawberry milk until she started elementary school and within a week it was the drink that she begged for above anything else. Years ago I started playing around with making vegan strawberry milk for my kids at home. I have had plenty of fails, and some winners, but this version of vegan strawberry milk made with homemade cashew milk has quickly risen to the top of my families request list.

This strawberry milk is delicious for sipping all on its own, but it is also good as the base of a smoothie, poured over granola, or frozen in ice pop molds. It’s a total winner! Just don’t let your family know that it’s actually good for them…it sort of takes the fun out of it.

    Hi! This recipe sounds delicious! 🙂 Do you happen to have a version that is nut free? We have nut and gluten and artificial colors sensitivities so everything else about the milk works for us Btw I’m definitely going to try your recipes for gluten free breadcrumbs. Thank you so much for posting it!

      Gina you could totally try this with hemp seed milk and my friend Cara has a great recipe ( http://www.forkandbeans.com/2015/01/24/homemade-hemp-seed-milk/ ) or if you don’t have a dairy allergy it totally works with regular milk too. I am so glad you will be able to use the bread crumb recipes! I use them all the time.

    I have soy, dairy, and gluten allergies and am in desperate need of recipes that I can make for every meal. It seams if one thing is gluten or dairy free it contains soy any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! I will definitely be trying this delicious looking treat soon!
