Strawberry Coconut Milkshake

Strawberry Coconut Milkshake - AMAZING!  Gluten free

Something about warm mornings makes me crave a creamy smoothie filled with fresh fruits and veggies.  Its the perfect tasty start to a day, and with all the nutrients packed into one yummy glass - a day that starts with a smoothie is bound to be a good one!


As part of my plunge into the book My New Roots on Lavende & Lemonade, I've prepared the Strawberry Coconut Milkshake on page 33.


Quoting directly from author Sarah Britton (photos are added by me):


STRAWBERRY COCONUT MILKSHAKE


Serves 1: gluten free

This milkshake is truly decadent and luscious beyond belief.  When strawberries are in season, their flavor is so remarkable -- and what better way to enjoy them than blended with creamy coconut and floral bee pollen?


Strawberry Coconut Milkshake - AMAZING!  Gluten free
  • 1 cup / 250g strawberries, plus more for serving
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 cup / 250ml coconut milk
  • Grated zest of 1/2 organic lemon
  • 1 to 3 teaspoons bee pollen (depending on what you're used to eating), plus more for serving
  • 2 ice cubes



Combine the strawberries, banana, coconut milk, lemon zest, and bee pollen in a blender.  Add the ice cubes and blend on high speed until smooth and creamy.  Garnish with sliced strawberries and a sprinkling of bee pollen.

I'm back...Lavende again...

As I'd mentioned in my last article on My New Roots: Inspired Plant Based Recipes for Every Season, at my first reading of this recipe I was skeptical..."who cooks with Bee Pollen??".  Never one to let a mystery go unsolved I've been studying up and have written about it here.

This smoothie, or milkshake as its called in the book, is a winner.  A more sophisticated spin on the classic strawberry-banana-yogurt smoothie that is worth taking a few extra seconds to put together!
