How to Make Fresh Strawberry Milk Recipes * Food & Drink

This post is graciously sponsored by fairlife ultra-filtered milk.

My kids love strawberry milk. We have used the powder strawberry milk mix before but this time I wanted to come up a with recipe that is more natural and healthy with less sugar. There are so many juice recipes for a nice healthy drink, but not really anything with milk. I came up with a simple delicious Strawberry milk recipe. Since fresh strawberries are in season right now it's a great treat for the family. It's almost like a fresh fruit smoothie. An extra bonus is this recipe is a lactose free strawberry milk recipe.

Fresh Strawberry Milk

  • 1 pint of fresh strawberries
  • 1/4 cup raw organic blue agave syrup
  • 1 quart ultra-filtered fairlife whole milk
Makes about 2 cups of fresh strawberry milk syrup.

Wash and slice fresh raw strawberries. In a blender add strawberries and agave syrup then blend on puree setting. Pour milk into a glass leaving enough room for strawberry puree. Add puree, then stir. It's so simple you won't believe you could have been making this yummy drink all along.

Best Fluffy Pancake Recipe * Foods & Drink

Pancakes on a Saturday morning is the ultimate comfort food.  A nice stack topped with real Vermont maple syrup with the added salty contrast of crisp bacon is food heaven. My recipe adds a little acid (lemon juice) to activate the baking powder which creates tiny bubbles to lighten the batter up. I use real creamery butter on the griddle to create a little tiny bit of crisp crust and a rich butter flavor.
Serve these pancakes and you will be famous for your pancakes. Who knew it could be so so easy.

Best Pancake Recipe Ever

  • 2 cups of all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 cups of whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil 
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons real maple syrup
  • fresh creamery butter to top
In a mixing bowl add flour, baking powder and salt. Whisk together. In a large glass measuring cup add lemon juice then add milk in same container. Then add melted coconut oil and maple syrup. Lightly mix together. Add two eggs and mix just enough to break the yokes. Add liquid to dry ingredients. Whisk together until all ingredients are incorporated together. Set aside.
On a griddle or frying pan set to medium heat. Ladle pancake batter into pan. Turn pancake when the bubbles in the batter are popped. Cook until golden brown. Top with butter.

These pancakes should be great from the very first to the very last pancake you make. No need to throw out the first one like many people do when making pancakes. 

Top with real Vermont maple syrup and crumbled crisp bacon.


Fresh Pressed Mandarin Orange Juice * Food & Drink

Do you ever buy a bag of fresh tangerine or clementine oranges and they get to the point where they haven't gone bad yet but they are a bit soft. You didn't get around to eating them and you don't want to waste them. This is the perfect time to juice those oranges into liquid sunshine. Make some fresh pressed juice.

Did you know that clementines and tangerines are varieties of mandarin oranges? And that mandarins are a type of small oranges. Clementines are the smallest of the mandarins.
