Wash your hands with soap and water, then gather all your equipment and ingredients and put them on a counter.

  1. Fill the glass with strawberries. Don’t pack them — just lightly pile them together.
  2. Pour the milk into the same glass until it’s about 2/3 full, allowing the milk to sneak into whatever gaps remain between the berries.
  3. Dump the whole thing into a blender, whirl on high for 30 seconds, and pour back into the glass. Serve right away. Perfect every time. 


No fresh strawberries? No almond milk? No problem! This is a very forgiving recipe — which means that it can handle all kinds of changes. Use frozen unsweetened strawberries (or cherries or blueberries), and regular milk, if that’s what you’ve got.
