This vegan strawberry milk is a dairy free take on the popular Korean strawberry milk drink. It’s easy to make and naturally flavored with fresh strawberries!

Strawberry Milk

Strawberry milk is a popular drink that you can find in a lot of cafes in Korea. The drink is naturally flavored with a fresh strawberry purée and usually topped with more chopped, fresh strawberries. Sometimes you may even see it topped with some whipped cream!

Dairy Free Korean Strawberry Milk

More recently (and unfortunately), I’ve become pretty sensitive to dairy. I like Oatly’s Full Fat Oat Milk as a milk alternative and use it in this vegan Korean strawberry milk recipe. This is a perfect milk substitute because it has a similar creaminess and thickness. I find regular oat milk or other milk alternatives (soy milk, almond milk, etc.) to be a little too thin and watery.

Natural Sweeteners

While most of the flavor and sweetness is from the fresh strawberries, I like to add a bit of coconut sugar to the strawberry syrup. You’ll notice in most of my recipes that I like to use coconut sugar as a sweetener versus the more commonly used cane sugar or brown sugar. I prefer coconut sugar because it is softer in sweetness with hints of caramel. And just to note, it does not taste like coconut! It is also a healthier sugar substitute. It contains a bit of inulin, which decreases the likelihood of post-meal sugar spikes and so may be a healthier option for people with diabetes.

This simple dairy-free drink is fruity, creamy and delicious. You also don’t have to worry about artificial flavors or preservatives since you’re making the fresh strawberry syrup from scratch. If you’re still craving more dessert, check out my Levain Bakery inspired cookie recipe!

Hope you enjoy!

Keyword: Dessert, Fruit, Strawberry
Servings: 4


  • 1 cup whole oat milk
  • 320 g strawberries, pitted and roughly chopped (from about 1lb pack of strawberries)
  • ¼ cup coconut sugar


  • Add the chopped strawberries to a small saucepan.
  • Cook the strawberries over medium heat for about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Stir in the sugar.
  • Use an immersion blender to purée the strawberries. Let it cool for about 10 min.
  • Add ¼ cup of cooled strawberry purée to a drinking glass.
  • Stir in ½ cup of whole oat milk and serve immediately.


You can prepare the strawberry syrup ahead of time! Store the strawberry syrup in a clean, airtight container and it should be good for up to two days in the fridge.
If you don’t have an immersion blender, you could use a back of a fork to mash the cooked strawberries. You might have some strawberry chunks in your drink, but it will still be delicious!
