  • 10 ounces (284 grams) fresh strawberries divided
  • 3-4 tablespoons (44-50 grams) granulated sugar
  • 2 cups (473 milliliters) cold milk


  • Hull and chop 6 ounces (170 grams) of the strawberries and place in a bowl. Mash using a potato masher, fork, or your hands to desired texture, then mix in the sugar. Transfer to a small pot and bring to a simmer over medium heat.
  • Simmer while stirring for 2-5 minutes to create a slightly thickened strawberry syrup. Remove from heat, cool to room temperature, transfer to a covered container, and refrigerate until chilled.
  • Once the syrup has cooled and is ready to assemble, hull and finely dice the remaining 4 ounces (113 grams) of the strawberries.
  • Divide the cooled strawberry syrup between two glasses. Top with the diced strawberries and pour in the milk.
  • Stir to combine the ingredients and serve immediately.
