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.
