What is Strawberry Coconut Shake

Coconut Strawberry Shake is an incredible blend of refreshing coconut milk and ripened strawberries’ sweetness creating a magical fusion of a heavenly summer drink with an unbeatable flavor.

This addictive strawberry shake with the novelty of coconut milk is ultra-creamy, fruity flavored, and super nutritious too.

I would say, it’s more like a smoothie as it is thick, smooth, and creamy. However, you can adjust its consistency by adding more coconut milk/ regular milk or water.

Reasons You’ll ♡ Strawberry Coconut Shake

This lusciously light and delicious shake is loved for its easy preparation and drool-worthy freshness. You will also relish it for more reasons —

  • Fresh strawberries deliver fabulous taste and fiber.
  • Whip this coconut shake with ripened strawberries; you can ditch the sweeteners altogether.
  • Packed with vitamins, calcium, potassium, and fiber, this delicious shake is a complete health drink and a sheer luxury.
  • Completely customizable, and 
  • A super nutritious breakfast on the go!

The best part is that this naturally sweet strawberry shake is a gluten-free drink, perfectly suitable for the gluten sensitive. It does not contain any preservatives or artificial colors, making it safe and healthy.

Fresh Strawberries

Strawberry Coconut Shake Ingredient list

Strawberries — The star ingredient of this decadent shake recipe, use the perfectly ripened strawberries to achieve the desired creaminess and flavor. You can use frozen strawberries or fresh juicy ones; both taste stunning – but fresh fruits are always juicier and make a super creamier blend.

Coconut flakes — Unsweetened coconut flakes add crunchy magic that takes the drink to another level.

Strawberry extract — This is added to enhance the strawberry flavor.

Milk — Coconut milk is added to the recipe for a tropical feel and creamy texture.

Cream — Coconut cream lends more creaminess to the recipe, in addition to the taste. You may substitute regular milk cream for coconut cream. Both taste equally delicious.

How to make the best Strawberry Coconut Shake

Making this healthy strawberry milkshake or strawberry smoothie takes less than 5 minutes, and you’ll need a blender or food processor.

Clean Strawberries — Rinse the strawberries thoroughly in cold tap water. Drain and pat the berries dry with a clean towel. Trim the green leaves from the strawberries.

Blend — Transfer the strawberries to a food processor. Add the rest of the ingredients and purée for a few seconds until thick and creamy. 

Pour —  Pour into two glasses, top the shake with whipped cream and serve. 

Enjoy it for breakfast, an after-school drink, or even a welcome drink for your loved ones, and I am sure it will be a smash hit!

Recipe Tips and Variations

Adding more nutrition — This fruity drink is healthy and super delicious, but you can add a tablespoon of your favorite nut butter to enhance the protein level. Another way for extra nutrition is to add a scoop of your favorite protein powder to the drink.

Skip adding a sweetener — Use perfectly ripened juicy fruits, so you don’t need to add any sweetener to this luscious drink. The natural sweetness of the ripe strawberries is perfect for the recipe.

Only use milk products — This recipe makes the best shake when milk or milk product, such as yogurt, is used as an alternative for the preparation. You may also use water instead of milk but avoid fruit juices as these will alter the drink’s taste.

For an extra punch of fiber — Although the strawberry coconut milk smoothie is a healthy drink, you may still prefer to add flax seeds, chia seeds, or even hemp seeds for an extra punch of fiber.

Easily doubled — A perfect crowd-pleaser, this recipe can be easily doubled or tripled to cater to your preferences.

For that dreamy creamy slurp — If you prefer a creamier and more luxurious Strawberry Coconut Shake, add a scoop of your favorite ice cream and dig into an absolutely indulgent, super-rich, super-cool fruity treat!

Sugar substitutes — You will not need to add sugar or any sweetener if you use ripe strawberries. However, if you need to add a sweetener other than sugar, you can use maple syrup, Medjool dates, or 3 tablespoons of agave syrup for flavoring.

For an icy shake — Frozen fruits make the yummiest frozen coconut milk strawberry shake. You can create an icy cold refreshing drink with the frozen strawberries to perk up a hot summer day.

The ‘‘milky’’ alternatives — Full fat coconut milk creates a thick, creamy shake. However, you may also use plant-based milk such as cashew or almond milk for a creamier, tastier, healthier Strawberry shake. You may also substitute coconut milk with regular milk and cream if you prefer. 

Other creative variations — Strawberries in this recipe make an excellent drink that is purely divine. However, you can experiment with other berries in place of strawberries. You can pick and choose different berries to create a new blend of your choice.

For a rich milkshake — Rich and luscious milkshake is the product of full-fat milk. The low-fat dairy produces skinny milkshakes. The choice is entirely yours!

Prefer a nutty crunch? — A nutty texture within the shake brings extra fun. You can throw in blanched almonds, pistachios, or cashews for a nuttier taste and texture.

Frequently Asked Questions

 
How to store leftover Strawberry Coconut Shake?
Freshly prepared Strawberry coconut shake is on a different level. Therefore, I do not recommend storing it in the fridge for more than 4-5 hours.
Leftover shakes can be stored in the freezer but in a different way.
If you have popsicle molds, fill them with the leftover shake, drop popsicle sticks inside each cavity and freeze. Your fruity popsicles are ready to be feasted upon.
 
Do I need to freeze the Strawberries?
When using chilled coconut milk, you may go for fresh strawberries, just like I did.
However, frozen fruits create the thickest, creamiest, and super chilled shakes, so I always suggest using them in milkshakes made without the ice cream.
