Prep Time 5 minutes Cook Time 20 minutes

Total Time 25 minutes Servings 8 Calories 94 kcal

Ingredients

  • 2 cups frozen strawberries
  • 10 Medjool dates
  • 1 cup water

Serve with:

  • Cold Unsweetened Coconut Milk , 8 ounces of milk per person

Instructions

  1. Put strawberries, dates and water in a medium pot, cover and bring to a boil. Boil for 5-7 minutes.
  2. Pour into a blender and blend on high until smooth. Careful because it will be hot.
  3. Once cool enough, pour through a fine mesh strainer or nut milk bag to get all the pieces out. Use a large bowl or even the pot you boiled it in. If using a bowl, return strained liquid to the pot and boil with the top off until it thickens to your liking. I did about 10 minutes.
  4. Store in a jar and place in the refrigerator so it can get very cold, about an hour but even better if overnight.
  5. When ready, combine 2 tablespoons syrup (you can add 3 if you want it sweeter) for each 8 ounces of milk. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

  • If you don’t like coconut, almond or cashew milk will work great too.
  • I used frozen strawberries, but fresh will also work. Just watch it while it boils as you may need less time.
  • If you prefer, you can also sub the dates with maple syrup. I’d start with 1/2 cup.
  • Number of servings is for the syrup
