Strawberry Coconut Smoothie

I’ve been a smoothie Queen ever since my sister got me a Vitamix. I use it everyday primarily to whip up super healthy drinks for my Z. Since the weather has been getting warmer (although not warm enough!), I’ve made some yummy and refreshing combinations for myself!

Today was all about Strawberries + Coconut…

1 cup of frozen strawberries (you can use fresh, but I like to freeze mine first so I can avoid using ice)

1 cup of pure silk coconut milk drink (consistency is similiar to soy milk)

1 tablespoon of canned coconut milk (this is more concentrated like a paste)

1 tablespoon of maple syrup.

Happy Monday to all!

  1. This sounds lovely! My key takeaway from this post was your note on freezing the strawberries to avoid using ice — smart! I’ll try making something similar soon (before I melt in the Manila heat).

    Nice and yummy. How will it taste if I omit the coconut milk? :-D

  3. I just tried making a smoothie with coconut milk and it didn’t taste good at all however seeing that you only used a tablespoon I think that’s where I went wrong-I used a whole can and the taste was overpowering! Thanks for the recipe. You’ve tempted me to try again.
