Strawberry Syrup for Strawberry Milk
Then I made another.
Then a third glass of strawberry milk.
It was only after glass number three that I realized that it was sloshing around my stomach and maybe I should stop. Who knew how good strawberry syrup would end up being? From then on whenever I babysat for the Wilkinson's strawberry milk would be a regular part of my diet.
I asked my mom to buy the strawberry syrup explaining to her that I would drink more milk if it were strawberry milk. It was all about getting more calcium. Really. My mom's response was that she wouldn't buy it, but I was free to make it.
Make strawberry syrup? Huh?
Turns out my mom had a recipe that is every bit as good as they stuff from the store and only costs pennies to make. You can make almost any flavor you want to. The flavoring comes from a packet of kool-aid. I bed grape would be awesome. Try whatever flavor you want and let me know how you liked it.
1 package kool-aid (strawberry)
2 cups sugar
1 cup water
Combine all ingredients in a sauce pan. Bring to a boil and boil for 1 minute. Let the syrup cool and then combine about a tablespoon of syrup with your milk. Use more or less depending on what you like.
