To make the whipped strawberry milk topping:
In a large cold bowl add cold whipping cream, white hot chocolate mix, strawberry drink powder and powdered sugar. Beat on high until the mixture begins to thicken. Keep beating until the mixture has soft peaks, or you can make an indent in it that holds its shape.
To make whipped strawberry milk cold
Fill two glasses with ice and add ½ cup of milk to each cup.
Place the whipped cream into a piping bag or strong zip-top style bag. Snip the corner of the bag with scissors and pipe a swirl over the iced milk. Add sliced strawberries, mini marshmallows, sprinkles or any other of your favorite toppings and enjoy!
To make whipped strawberry milk hot (like a hot chocolate)
Warm the milk in the microwave until hot. (Warm works fine for kids.) Add 1/2 cup of milk to each glass.
Place the strawberry whipped cream into a piping bag or strong zip-top style bag. Snip the corner of the bag with scissors and pipe a swirl over the warmed milk. Add sliced strawberries, sprinkles or any other of your favorite toppings and enjoy!
I blended the strawberry drink mix with the white hot chocolate mix to give it more of a hot chocolate flavor. You can easily swap out all strawberry mix in place of the white chocolate mix for more of a strawberry flavor.
For a more decadent whipped strawberry milk, add a little extra strawberry mix to milk on the bottom also instead of using just plain milk.
If substituting for a dairy allergy, I recommend trying coconut milk as it is the creamiest of the milk alternatives for the bottom. Other alternative milks (almond, oat, etc.) can also be substituted for the bottom milk. For the top, try making strawberry flavored whipped coconut milk.

Freeze-dried strawberries can be blended into a powder and used to replace the strawberry drink powder. This is a dairy-free option that also allows you to control the sweetness. Combine the powdered strawberries with your milk of choice then taste before whipping it into cream with a blender.
