You can combine milk with most flavors for unique and fun drinks for the whole family. While there are the classic flavored milk choices like chocolate or strawberry, there are so many more options! Create creamy options like orange creamsicle, coffee, or vanilla peaches and cream at home for a treat that’s good for you, too. Below are some unique flavored milk options you can make at home.
One quick flavored milk to make with a blender is banana milk. Blending one ripe banana with sugar and milk, you can quickly pour a glass of milk for everyone in the family that brings a subtle flavor to each sip. To bring out more flavor, add a teaspoon of vanilla or, for those who want to classify this option as a smoothie, blend in peanut butter for a milk flavor that Elvis would surely approve. (Thank you very much!)
A brightly colored and different milk flavor is blueberry milk. This is one flavored milk that will need more preparation time than mixing syrup into your milk, but it will be worth it to make your own syrup! Boil fresh blueberries in water, adding sugar for your desired level of sweetness, before straining. Once done, simply reach into the refrigerator for your homemade blueberry syrup, adding to a glass of milk to create a light purple and not-too-sweet drink.
Another flavored milk made with homemade syrup is vanilla mint. Boiling mint leaves with water and sugar before straining and adding vanilla extract, this milk can be enjoyed cold or heated as a soothing morning latte. If you don’t want to go through the working of boiling and straining ingredients to make a syrup, this flavored milk combo can also be created by mixing mint extract, vanilla extract, and some green food coloring for the kids into each glass of milk.
With plenty of additional flavored milk options to make at home, this list is by no means definitive, so bring the family together to brainstorm what flavors to enjoy tonight. Whether you choose the classic chocolate milk or a tropical sip with homemade strawberry-mango syrup, you won’t be disappointed. What flavors will you create?
