Toasted Coconut Milkshake
 
 
An ice cream milkshake with toasted coconut.
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 6
Ingredients
  • vanilla ice cream
  • 2 cups shredded coconut
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • whipped cream
Instructions
  1. Let coconut milk sit, undisturbed, in the fridge for a few hours. It will separate, with a syrupy layer on the bottom, and an opaque creamy layer on top.
  2. TOAST COCONUT: Place coconut in an even layer on a baking sheet, and bake at 450 degrees for 5-10 minutes. Watch closely, and remove as soon as it browns.
  3. BLEND SHAKE: Place half the toasted coconut in a blender with about 3-4 cups ice cream.
  4. Carefully open coconut milk, and scoop about ¼ cup of the creamy top layer into blender. Scoop past creamy layer, and measure ⅓ cup of the bottom syrupy layer. Place in blender.
  5. Blend on milkshake setting (or a medium-high speed) for 30-40 seconds, until smooth. Pour into glasses, and garnish with whipped cream and coconut, if desired.
  6. Repeat blending process with remaining coconut, ice cream, and coconut milk.
