Cooking Made Easy: A Berry Good Smoothie


With this heat we're having at the moment, nobody really is into cooking and even eating can be too exhausting (#sadstory) but luckily enough there is one thing you can't have enough of this summer: a cool and fresh smoothie! I must admit that I only recently discovered my love for homemade smoothies but therefore I will now be doing them as often as I can. Today I want to share one of my favourites: a berry smoothie with some coconut milk. (Okay it isn't really a smoothie in the original definition of the word when you add coconut milk but let's not be fussy.)







I don't think this needs much explaining. Simply take a glass and fill it with your favourite berries, add some ice cubes and as much coconut milk (or coconut water) as you like, mix it all together and enjoy! Who wants to may add some sugar or other sweeteners, I took a bit of vanilla sugar but the advantage of adding coconut milk is that it will have a naturally sweet taste anyway.

What do you prefer, smoothies with or without coconut milk? Also please don't forget to share your favourite smoothie recipes!

  8. I always use soy milk for my smoothies, or plain yogurt. Should give coconut milk a try.

  9. Hi Carmen, your smoothie looks delicious. Coconut milk is a good substitute to milk. I make them at home too. Now I use Almond milk which can be bought in the local grocery.

  10. Its so funny that in summer its too hot to eat and in winter we crave tons of comfort food (which is what is happening on my side of the world now. This looks so fresh and delicious. Ive never tried making a smoothie with coconut milk before, I usually use strawberries and cream flavored yogurt.
