Fresh Korean Strawberry Milk Recipe

Nothing to cool you down on a hot, summery day like a cool drink! This refreshing Korean strawberry milk is sweet, creamy, and filled with fresh strawberries.
In Korea, you can easily pick this drink up at a café, but if you’re – like me – on the other side of the world, luckily it is super easy to prepare at home. With only a couple of ingredients, you have your own fresh Korean strawberry milk to enjoy within 10 minutes!

  • blender optional
  • Mason jar or glass 600 ml


  • 125 g fresh strawberries (divided into 2 portions of 75g and 50g)
  • 3 tbsp condensed milk can be slightly adjusted according to personal taste
  • 400 ml whole milk
Condensed milk seems to be less frequently used in Western cuisine, compared to Asian cuisine, so if you've never had it before I urge you to give it a try! In Asia, this sweet ingredient is commonly used in either hot or iced coffee and tea, or with desserts.
Since condensed milk is already liquid by itself, it dissolves much easier than sugar for instance, and it's also a great way to get a more concentrated milk flavor, without the added excess liquid that milk has. This can also make it great to use when baking.


How to Prepare Homemade Korean Strawberry Milk

  • Remove the stems from your strawberries and rinse them under cold, running water.
  • Pat the strawberries dry with a (paper) towel and divide them into two portions, one portion of around 75g, and one of around 50g.
  • Puree the larger portion of strawberries in a blender, or first cut them in half and mash them with a fork in a bowl. Then add the condensed milk to the strawberry puree and mix it together until smooth.
  • Cut the smaller portion of strawberries into small pieces. Ideally, they should be small enough to fit through a (wide) straw.
  • Now we're ready to start layering the Korean strawberry milk. Start by scooping the strawberry puree onto the bottom of the glass. Then place a spoon in the glass - just above the puree - and slowly pour the cold milk onto the spoon so as to not push the strawberry puree layer to the sides too much. After you've poured the milk, add the diced pieces of strawberry to the glass.
  • If you want you can either serve it with a straw or a long spoon to be able to stir all the layers together just before drinking it. Either way, your Korean strawberry milk is best enjoyed cold, so serve as soon as possible & enjoy!
