This delicious strawberry coconut cream smoothie would make a lovely treat for a special breakfast on a birthday or Christmas morning. Especially so, if you normally try to keep your calorie count low. However, the fat in coconut milk is healthy and good for you so don’t be afraid to have it occasionally.

Fruit comes in all shapes and sizes and the thickness of this delicious smoothie from Averie at AverieCooks will vary according to how many and the size of the strawberries you use.

The thickness is also affected by the other ingredients. If you use canned coconut milk you’ll get a thicker smoothie than if you use a box from the chilled cabinet.

Because of that you will want to have some extra milk on hand so you can adjust the thickness, if necessary. This is especially important for young children as they find it harder to suck the smoothie through a straw if it’s too thick.

We’ve adjusted the recipe slightly, mainly to make a larger quantity to treat the whole family. And speaking of treats, Averie gives several suggestions …

Make as an “ice cream” or frozen treat. Pour blended mixture into a bowl, freeze until almost solid, and serve.

Or make popsicles – use paper dixie cups or ice cube trays and toothpicks or wooden grill skewers as the stick if you don’t have popsicle molds.

Add rum (and a squirt of lime juice if you have it) for strawberry daiquiris, or Malibu, Citron, Gran Marnier.

Add protein powder, drizzle with chocolate sauce, add other fruit (bananas, oranges, mango, pineapple, peaches, etc.) to the mixture before blending.
