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

  • 1 cup strawberries, raspberries or blackberries, rinsed and trimmed

In This Recipe
  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 berries and mint.

I'm a home cook. I love salads. Two things you'll always find in my refrigerator are lemons and butter, and in my pantry good quality chocolate and the makings for chocolate chip cookies.

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