Fresh Strawberry Milk and Cool Stuff


"You journey has molded you for your greater good, and it was exactly what it needed to be. Don't think that you've lost time. It took each and every situation you have encountered to bring you to the now. And now is right on time."

 ― Asha Tyson




So I wanted this post with a beverage, and cool stuff to happen over the weekend, but it's hard for me to keep to a schedule. But here it is! Fresh strawberry milk, a few simple ingredients turned into something healthy and spectacular. (Recipe at the end of the post.)






This week one of my favorite things I'm including, isn't a thing, it's a site.  From Kindovermatters.
The quote above belongs to this recent post called, "50 Inspirational Quotes to Power Up Your Inner Badass.  The quote at the top of this post is number 5 on the list.






Spread Love Butter Spreader - I'm in love with this simple piece of flatware. Perfect for a wedding or engagement gift. From Milk and Honey Luxuries, I think I want everything from their store.




Lavender Infused Honey - Raw honey from their farm, infused with their own homegrown lavender.  I can just taste it now. Yum. from Honeyrunfarm.





Kitchen Cook Sign from Oldnewagain. They have more signs, and letters too. I love them all.

Fresh Strawberry Milk


Ingredients


A glass full of fresh strawberries with stems removed- washed- if you want the milk to be thick like a shake, use frozen strawberries and it will.

the same glass full of milk- full fat is always best- use about 3/4 of a glass of milk if you are using frozen fruit and if you want it thick.

2-4 Tablespoons sugar or honey, to taste

Add all of the ingredients to the container of a blender and blend well.

Top with whipped cream if you wish. Enjoy!
