Well the heat here in La Paz has definitely kicked in, we are talking in the 100's. So despite seeking air conditioning for help, I have been finding ways to beat the hot summer with lots of smoothies, healthy soft-serve (here & here), and now this sweet gem!
When I make coconut milk, often I'll freeze a ice cube tray or two full, to use for smoothies or to toss in my iced coffees, but thought it would make the perfect creamier base to a blended treat. This is a mix between a really thick shake & sorbet, but full of refreshing & nutritious ingredients that can be made in a flash. What also is great, is you can simply change the strawberries for any fruit you have on hand or perhaps enjoy more & turn into a sweet & healthy treat that will cool you down & leave you satisfied.
1/2 cup coconut ice cubes
1/2 frozen banana
1 cup strawberries
1-2 Tbs coconut milk
Freeze coconut milk into ice cube trays. Let set (a few hours). Combine ingredients into a blender, crush until smooth. Serve in a bowl & add your favorite toppings.
