Cool off and enjoy the last weeks of summer with this yummy summer beverage inspired by old fashioned cream sodas. This drink uses fresh summer strawberries, coconut milk, and sparkling water for a unique, refreshing, and easy to make treat!
Strawberry Cream Soda
(Adapted from BHG.com)
3 cups fresh sliced strawberries
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup refrigerated coconut milk (I had an almond & coconut blend on hand and it was yummy)
3 cups sparkling water or club soda
splash of vanilla extract (optional)
a few extra sliced chilled strawberries for garnish
Directions: Mash fruit and sugar in a medium sized bowl. Pour 1/3 cup of the mashed strawberries in each of the 6 cups. To each glass, add 2 tablespoons milk, a few ice cubes, and 1/2-2/3 cups sparkling water. Add a small splash of vanilla extract if desired, and a few extra slices of chilled strawberries. Stir with a spoon or straw. Enjoy!
My kids loved this as a sweet and fizzy afternoon treat! What a fun way to use summer strawberries.
