Homemade vegan strawberry milk is natural and only needs four ingredients, it can be made sugar-free and uses plant-based milk. Try this yummy, summery strawberry milk recipe.

Homemade vegan strawberry milk is easy to make and only has four ingredients — sugar, plant-based milk, water, and strawberries, so you don’t get any of the preservatives or artificial flavoring that comes with store-bought flavored milk. It is quick to make and can be done with or without a blender. Fresh, in-season (summer) strawberries will work best, but frozen strawberries can also be used, check out how to freeze strawberries.

The best plant-based kinds of milk for this recipe are those which aren’t too watery, like almond milk and cashew milk. You can also choose to go sugar-free, but remember that this will make the drink less thick and syrupy. As well as a drink, vegan strawberry milk can be used on other dishes, such as on breakfast cereal like muesli, healthy homemade granola, or overnight oats and you can adapt the recipe by adding different berries.

If you have bought your ingredients already but aren’t making the vegan strawberry milk on the same day, try washing the strawberries with vinegar to keep them fresh longer. Also find out how to keep strawberries fresh in general, so none of them spoil before you use or eat them.

  • 1/3 cup organic cane sugar or natural sweetener
  • 1/4 cup of water
  • 15 oz. strawberries fresh or frozen
  • 4 cups plant-based milk


  1. Wash the strawberries, remove the stems and chop into quarters.
  2. Put the sugar, water, and strawberries into a large saucepan and stir.
  3. Over medium heat bring to a boil and use a fork to mash the strawberries until they get softer.
  4. Reduce the heat and simmer for ten minutes, until the mixture thickens. Allow to cool.
  5. Blender option: Pour the cooled strawberry mixture and the plant-based milk into the blender and pulse until smooth. Pour into a jug or glasses and chill before serving, or pour over ice and serve.
  6. No blender option: Add half of the strawberry mixture to each glass and then top up with the plant based-milk, chill or add ice. For more texture add some strawberry chunks and serve with a spoon.

You can store the vegan strawberry milk in the refrigerator in an airtight container for 2-3 days. Alternatively, if you just want to make up the strawberry mixture first, it will store for 3-4 days in the refrigerator. You should not freeze the vegan strawberry milk as it will separate on defrosting.
