This coconut milk smoothie – thanks to Rebecca Bohl of HealingSmoothies.com – is a “smoothie among smoothies” – so velvety in texture & rich in coconut flavor. She calls it “a creamy and decadent drink”, and so it is! The addition of cinnamon and banana tops it off.
Here’s a classic smoothie, dead easy to make, dairy-free, and still tastes delicious… simple, classic.
Remember coconut milk is naturally high in fat this smoothie is great for
- coconut lovers
- hot summer day treat
- occasional indulgence (vs every-day drink)
Rebecca’s advice on coconut milk –
Coconut milk is now available in many different forms. It comes boxed, or canned, and rarely straight from a coconut. Full-fat coconut milk can load on the calories, so I usually use lite canned coconut milk. It’s up to your personal taste though. I am not a fan of coconut milk from a box, so I usually turn to the canned version. I chill the coconut milk before using it in a smoothie such as this, which thickens it even further.
