When you have a craving for a milkshake, try this decadent and super creamy Coconut Shake. Coconut milk and coconut ice cream get blended together for a frosty frozen dessert drink. This recipe is made vegan and dairy-free.

  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 2 1x


Units Scale
  • 1 cup lite canned coconut milk
  • 2 scoops vanilla coconut milk ice cream
  • 2 frozen bananas, broken into chunks
  • 34 ice cubes
  • Toasted coconut shreds (optional, for topping)


  1. In the base of a high-speed blender like a Vitamix, combine the coconut milk, vanilla ice cream, frozen banana chunks, and ice cubes.
  2. Turn on high and use a tamper to push the ice cream and frozen fruit into the blade of the blender. Blend until creamy, about 45 seconds.
  3. Pour into two glasses and serve immediately.


  1. If you aren’t on a vegan or dairy-free diet, feel free to use dairy-based vanilla ice cream.
  2. This recipe can be easily doubled or even tripled for more servings.
  3. To freeze your bananas, let them get ripe and spotted. Break them or slice them into chunks and freeze flat on a baking sheet. Then, transfer the frozen banana chunks to a ziptop bag for storage or use them right away.
  4. To toast your coconut shreds, place 1-2 tablespoons in a dry skillet over low heat. The coconut will turn a golden brown after a few minutes. Keep an eye on the skillet so the coconut doesn’t burn!
