Description

Refreshing, delicious and totally worth the little bit of effort. If you were a lover of strawberry flavored milks growing up then you must try this all-grown-up version by Anya of Golubka made with fresh nut milk, real strawberries, and a dash of citrusy, slightly spicy cardamom, which adds a unique depth of flavor. No artifical dyes or high fructose corn syrup here!
