Pro Tips

  • You can easily double or triple this recipe depending on how many servings you want.
  • Feel free to use full-fat coconut milk or light coconut milk. Either way, it will be delicious!
  • Use a Blendtec or a Vitamix to ensure that the smoothie gets very creamy and fully blended.

FAQs

Can I use light coconut milk instead of full-fat coconut milk in this recipe?

Yes, absolutely! But, the milkshake will be the most rich and creamy if you use full-fat coconut milk.

I don’t have a Vitamix. Can I make this in a regular blender?

Yes, you can! It may not be as smooth, but it will still be delicious. You may also need to add 1-2 tablespoons of water or almond milk to help the mixture get fully blended.
