What does it taste like?
Vegan strawberry milk should taste creamy and sweet with a full flavor of fresh strawberries.
What if you use other plant-based milk?
Yes, you may use your preferred plant-based milk. The taste will slightly differ depending on the milk, but the flavor profile remains the same.
Can you use frozen strawberries for this recipe?
Fresh strawberries contain a higher concentration of vitamins and minerals than frozen ones. Some vitamins and minerals are vulnerable to cold and disintegrate when frozen and stored for an extended period.
How do you pick fresh strawberries in the grocery store?
If your grocers pack mouthwatering red strawberries, you may select those packs in the back. These fruits are the freshest since supermarkets, and grocers follow the “first in, first out” rule. If your grocers sell them by weight, then choose brightly colored berries. These fruits should also shine naturally and still have green caps.
- You can blend all the ingredients if you want smooth and creamy vegan strawberry milk. Doing this will copy the flavored milk in the grocery stores.
- Place the strawberry milk in the fridge for a couple of hours if you want to drink it cold.
