Today’s recipe is a strawberry milkshake! This might not be an ancient, traditional Korean recipe, but in Korea this is how me and my friends always made milkshakes. Only later did I realize that Americans made milkshakes much differently.
The secret to this milkshake is to freeze the strawberries beforehand, so when you blend them with honey and milk, the shake will be icy, smooth, and sweet, like a cross between a milkshake and a slush. You don’t need to use any ice cream, it’ll still be cold, smooth, and creamy this way. I’ve never met anyone who didn’t like my strawberry milkshake, especially when made with strawberries that are in season.
When I lived in Korea, I used to go to the wholesale farmers’ market with my friends when strawberries were in season, and we’d buy huge wooden boxes of strawberries. We sometimes would split them amongst ourselves in the parking lot. This way we could get the best quality strawberries of the year, at the cheapest price.
I’d take them home and hull and clean strawberries all afternoon. It was hard work but I was excited because after that day I could make strawberry milkshakes for my family for months and months. I’d also make jam with them, and my own strawberry liquor.
Strawberry season is here again! Go and get some, enjoy this recipe, and freeze some for the future! Let me know how your family love your strawberry milkshake!
