Strawberry & Coconut Milkshake

Strawberry & Coconut Milkshake, smoothie, drink, shake, strawberries, coconutHaving over-looked some strawberries in the fridge last weekend and feeling under pressure to use them as soon as possible I decided to make a milk shake with some of them. My daughter loves milkshakes and they usually involve bananas as strawberries tend to just get eaten whole here (or made into jam)! To give the milkshake a tropical flavour I decided to add some coconut paste which worked really well. I also used some clotted cream ice cream but any premium vanilla ice cream would be suitable.

The resulting Strawberry & Coconut Milkshake was absolutely delicious and I shall certainly be making it again soon. I’m sure frozen strawberries would work really well too and would also work out cheaper.

As strawberries are now in season I am entering my milkshake into Simple and in Season run by Ren Behan and hosted this month by Fuss Free Flavours. I am also entering Credit Crunch Munch as this milkshake is much cheaper to make at home than to buy out, which I run with Fuss Free Flavours and is hosted this month by Utterly Scrummy Food for Families.

    clotted cream ice cream is a thing?! america is missing out. i’m betting this could also be really tasty with coconut ice cream, or coconut milk, or toasted coconut (or all three).

    1. Camilla

      Yes they all sound great:-)

  2. Paul Wilson

    Just the thing for a hot summer’s day.

  3. Deborah Bird

    This sounds lovely! I am definitely going to try this as a healthier alternative to shop bought milkshakes as my son loves them!

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Deborah, I’m sure your son will love it:-)

    I’m obsessed with coconut! I’ll gladly put it in anything & everything! I’ve just done coconut pancakes & a delicious coconut cake. Would love to know more about that coconut paste you used! It sounds amazing. I’m amazed if never heard of it before!

    1. Camilla

      It’s new, see previous answers as a couple of people have asked:-)


    Delicious!! Camilla can I ask where you got the coconut paste from? Or is there anything I can use as a substitute? x

    1. Camilla

      I used Taylor & Colledge Natural Coconut Extract Paste which I can only find on-line. You could try using bottled Coconut Flavouring/Extract, in the same type of bottle you’d find vanilla extract!


        Thanks Camilla I’ll have a look for the paste 🙂 x

  20. Diane

    Thick rich and refreshing. This shake looks so inviting. I have some strawberries that need to go into this recipe. Thanks!

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Diane – it’s so good we had it again tonight with a topping of whipped cream:-)

  21. Urvashi

    Looks lovely but I’m intrigued about the coconut paste. where do you buy it?

    1. Camilla

      I used Taylor & Colledge Natural Coconut Extract Paaste which is available on-line:-)
