As is often the case, we were working on another project when we stumbled across something delicious and unexpected. Some leftover strawberry powdered sugar reminded me of Strawberry Nesquik. I took it and added 15%, by weight, to a glass of milk. I stirred it in and it mostly dissolved. But I needed a little more force to incorporate the remnants. I poured the milk into a quart deli container, put the lid on, and shook it furiously. Then I poured the frothy strawberry milk into a glass. The strawberries thickened the milk, the sugar sweetened the milk, and the results were stupendous. I had an icy cold, creamy, fruity, floral glass of strawberry milk, better than any I'd ever tasted before. Amaya will be thrilled with her new beverage.
28 grams freeze dried strawberries
100 grams powdered sugar
Put the strawberries and sugar into a dry blender. Put the lid on and turn the blender on low. Increase the speed to high to fully pulverize the strawberries into a fine flour. Store the strawberry sugar in a zip top bag or air-tight container. It will keep indefinitely at room temperature.
