This 5-ingredient sweet and creamy Strawberry Coconut shake makes a delicious and satisfying breakfast. It’s naturally sweet, fresh and will completely satisfy your sweet tooth!
Don’t you love summer! Markets are flooded with an array of fresh, vibrant fruits and berries. My recent trip to the local market yielded four big boxes of red, luscious strawberries, along with other yummy and juicy fruits. Strawberry Coconut Shake
Besides just eating them as is, what do these beautiful berries call for? It calls for smoothies and shakes! And nothing screams summer like a homemade sweet and filing strawberry coconut shake. I love this shake because it’s
- Super easy to make
- It takes less than 5 minutes to make
- It’s gluten-free and
- Can be vegan too!
Now, who wouldn’t want to grab that drink????
Now on to the recipe!
Today, I am sharing a delicious new combination of flavors. I will be pairing fresh strawberries with unsweetened coconut flakes and coconut milk to create a healthy and refreshing shake that will energize you for the day.
This satisfying and filling shake is made with coconut milk and coconut cream. But feel free to substitute it with regular milk and cream.
My strawberries were super-sweet, so I chose not to add any sweetener to this shake. Add sugar or maple syrup if you prefer. For this recipe, you can use frozen strawberries, but nothing beats the taste of fresh fruits. It’s amazing!!
This shake blends into a smooth and creamy drink. It’s a thick shake, so feel free to adjust the consistency to your liking.
Now isn’t that easy? Toss all the ingredients in a blender, blend until creamy and smooth and sip away! You can’t go wrong anywhere with this shake!
Besides the taste, strawberry coconut shake is an excellent source of fiber, vitamins, minerals, calcium, potassium, and is packed with electrolytes.
Something this tasty and healthy should be on your to-make list.
