Inspired by Gintama, I’m reacreating Gin’s favourite treat, Strawberry milk!
As much as I love the fall, I am not quite ready for the cold so I’m clinging to summer with this delicious drink!
If you’ve ever watched Gintama, then you’ve almost certainly noticed that Gin has a serious sweet tooth and is particularly obsessed with strawberry milk. If you havent, then you’re in for a treat. This is an absurd and hilarious anime. There are a bunch of scenes throughout this long running show that highlight Gin’s obsesssion with Strawberry Milk. He even gave a whole inspirational speech about it once!
So we are making fresh strawberry milk, with a homemade syrupy puree to really give that bright burst of flavour. I really love strawberry milk! It’s such a nice treat and I now totally understand everyone’s excitement! I am even making some strawberry boba to add in and make this drink extra fun. It really brought another great textural element and there’s something very satisfying about chewing on fresh boba.
The puree is seriously tasty and with only 3 ingredients, you definitely need to try it. I use it in a bunch of recipes or even just on toast or added to yogurt. I love it as a filling in cupcakes (see my recipe for Peanut Butter & Jelly Cupcakes for Anya: Inspired by Spy x Family) and on top of the best Japanese Soufflé Pancakes!
To be honest, I was nervous to make boba for the first time, especially since I wanted them to burst with strawberry flavour. I am definitely looking forward to making boba again and testing it with other flavour combinations. It’s gonna be fun and tasty I think. I did use glutinous rice flour for this specific recipe so its more accurate to call these little mochi balls, but they’re great either way!
Yeah ok, the boba did come out way bigger than I expected, but they were surprisingly easy to make, and were a really yummy addition to the strawberry milk. Highly recommend taking the extra time to make them. However, if you want something quicker, this strawberry milk is still delicious without the boba! The fresh puree and chopped strawberries make this super yummy.
Gintama is a special show that is truly unique! There’s lots of great food throughout the show, but it was fun to tackle this iconic one. This strawberry milk recipe is easy, delicious, and you can enjoy it both cold and hot. You definitely need to make some!
