A delicious summer drink made of nothing more than milk, strawberries, and a little sweetening. It's light but rich-tasting and simple to make. Plan ahead so you can chill it overnight.
Combine the strawberries and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Let them stand for at least an hour (longer if time allows), until very syrupy. Transfer the strawberries and their juices to a blender container and add the strawberry jam. Blend until perfectly smooth. Combine the strawberry puree, whole milk, and buttermilk in a large pitcher. Cover and chill overnight. Stir gently to re-combine and serve cold. The strawberry milk will keep in the fridge for 2 to 3 days.
The original recipe is from Gabrielle Hamilton's cookbook "Prune". This version is an adaptation from "Smitten Kitchen" blog.
