Berry, Lime & Coconut Shake

By • May 19, 2013 • 2 Comments



Author Notes: These shakes are a great way to use up leftover coconut milk, though I'm so hooked that I'll buy coconut milk just to make them. They're also a great way to enjoy the ripe, juicy berries that are in the market right now; in the off season, frozen berries can be substituted. Be sure to take the extra step of adding lime zest -- it makes the shakes extra delicious. EmilyC

Serves 1

  • 1 cup strawberries, raspberries or blackberries, rinsed and trimmed
  • Juice and zest (finely grated) from 1 small lime
  • 1 cup coconut or vanilla ice cream
  • about 1/4 to 1/3 cup coconut milk (full-fat)
  • a few large mint leaves (optional)
  1. Combine all ingredients in blender, including mint leaves (if using), starting with 1/2 amount of lime juice and adding more to taste. Blend. Add more ice cream / coconut milk if needed to reach desired consistency. If you're feeling fancy, garnish with fresh strawberries and mint.

Thanks Madhuja! It's my new favorite shake. I made them twice over the weekend. My 3-year old loves them too.
