My nephew loves strawberry milk. This simple recipe came from an attempt to create a more natural substitute for the strawberry syrup sold in stores. I even use it in my own beverages!

This recipe was really delicious and is an all time favorite for my Nana. Strawberries are really good, and ripe ones are simply divine for this recipe. I didn't strain it however. I left the strawberries in the syrup and used it immediatley since I made pancakes that morning. Simply mahvelouus! Read More

So easy to make and there is no need to alter the recipe. I strained out the strawberry pulp and used the syrup for my home made whipped cream. Read More

Good basic strawberry syrup. I had to cook it for about half an hour and then used cornstarch to thicken (1-2 tsp cornstarch in a 2 tablespoons of cold water, mixed well, then added to the simmering syrup and stirred constantly for two minutes). I didn't strain the sauce - it is good with bits of strawberry. The family loved it on waffles ("fluffy pancakes" recipe on this site) and we had plenty left over. Read More

Who knew? This is a fabulous recipe; simple natural and versatile. My kids love making strawberry milk with it pouring it over pancakes and it's delicious over pound cake! Even better is the fact that there is no high fructose corn syrup or ingredients that you can't pronounce. Read More

I love to cook and add my own twist to recipes, based on the ratings, I'm sure this recipe could stand on its own. However, I decided to make it with 1/2 cup packed brown sugar and 1/2 cup white sugar. I also added 1/8 tsp All Spice and 1/8 tsp cinnamon. It was insanely good - truly the easiest and best syrup recipe I've ever made! Read More

I made this recipe exactly as directed once and then subbed raspberries for strawberries in the second batch and it was very good either way. The ratio of sugar/water/fruit is dead on. I used the syrup on French Toast as well as tried it to make strawberry milk and both had such a true, natural taste (as opposed to those chemical "fake" tastes of the store bought kind). I pureed the leftover raspberries to make "raspberry sauce" over cheesecake! I used the leftover strawberries to make a milk shake! Thanks to Mr. Maynard. Read More
