This week, I wanted to get back to one of my favorite kinds of recipes to post! Drinks…
Drinks are honestly so fun to make, photograph and consume. So I thought why not try out some delicious flavored milk recipe.
Growing up somewhere else than America, I didn’t have those memories of enjoying yummy sweet strawberry milk on the way to school or practice like this. But I do have memories of strawberry “milkshakes” or at least that’s what we call them over there. To me, that’s the closest thing to strawberry milk!
The strawberry milkshakes that I am talking about are a bit different from the one that we have here, our strawberry milkshakes consisted of milk and strawberries! yes… that’s it. We would blend this in a blender and enjoy that plain and simple goodness,
Funny story; when I moved here, I strongly believed that everyone was wrong about what a milkshake was. I thought to myself milkshakes are not supposed to have ice cream in them!!! Milkshakes are only supposed to contain milk and fruit and be shaken “or so-to-say”
Well fast forward to now, I think American milkshakes are amazing and all but I still prefer my clean option of fruits and milk blended together…
Anyway, back to what I was originally saying! I decided to do a dairy-free strawberry milk that could be enjoyed by everyone!
This recipe is especially suitable for those who have a dairy intolerance. This 20-minute strawberry dairy milk is also free from any added white sugar, which automatically makes it healthier :)!
For this, I used cashews, which are a great source of fiber. They contain two very necessary dietary fibers ( oleic acid and palmitic acid) these fibers are not produced by one’s own body, so they absolutely have to be consumed externally!
