Strawberry Banana Coconut Milkshake (with an optional kick!)

Mmmmm...These are so yummy!  Another summer drink for you to try this season.  A cool "healthy" treat of strawberries, banana, and coconut with a touch of Baileys is the perfect companion to hot summer evenings, don't you think?!  This cool shake is way better than anything you could pick up at a fast-food/coffee shop window!!   It tastes a bit like a banana split.  You really need to give this recipe a try!   You will not be disappointed!

Strawberry Banana Coconut Milkshake (with an optional kick!)
  • Strawberries, washed and hulled.
  • Banana, frozen if you have one, fresh if you don't.
  • Coconut milk about a cup  (if using canned-half a can coconut milk w/half can water)
  • 4 oz Baileys (optional, also can substitute with rum) 
Blend all ingredients and enjoy!
Also can be made ahead of time and put in freezer(but not to long as you don't want it to be totally frozen) whirl in the blender again for a colder treat!

This looks incredibly delicious, and definitely healthy (for the most part). I can't wait to try it - both ways!

Leslie @ goodbye, house! HELLO, HOME! said...

YUM! Gotta try this too, only no substitutions ;)
The lentils look great, too!
Are you trying to fatten me up ;)?

Angie said...

Leslie - Moderation is key! If you make your own coconut milk it really isn't to bad :)

Everyone - Did any of you try it? Let me know!

Your healthy easy recipes really look great. I often order milkshakes, but this one looks much better than those in cafe.
