Strawberry Milkshake with Coconut Whipped Cream

Strawberry Milkshake with Coconut Whipped Cream

I can tell that it’s strawberry season because our strawberries were only $.99 this week! There are so many strawberry recipes on my baking to-do list (like this strawberry shortcake from A Cozy Kitchen), but I decided to start with a simple milkshake! It’s supposed to be in the 90s this weekend in Las Vegas, so it’s definitely a refreshing treat. My parents will be in town, so I’m excited to spend some time with them by the pool and try some new restaurants when we get back from Connecticut (more about our current trip on Instagram!) One thing that does make this strawberry milkshake a little more unique is the coconut whipped cream. Trader Joe’s has a thick coconut cream that works really well for this recipe. To add to the coconut flavor, I topped it with toasted coconut. And since it’s Friday I bet it would be good with some vanilla vodka, too! Hope you all have a great weekend!

Instructions
  1. Blend vanilla ice cream, strawberries, milk and vanilla extract in a blender until smooth. Pour into 2 glasses.
  2. For the toasted coconut, preheat the oven to 325F and place shredded coconut onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Bake for about 3 minutes, then stir and bake for about 4 more minutes. Some of the coconut will be golden, but there will still be some white pieces—don't want to burn it!
  3. Now for the whipped cream! Chill the can of coconut cream for about 8 hours or overnight before making. Then 10 minutes before you want to make the whipped cream, put the metal bowl of a standing mixer into the freezer. Remove the coconut cream and use a spatula to pour the thick top part into the mixing bowl (leave the liquid behind). Beat for about 30 seconds until creamy. Add powdered sugar and vanilla and mix until smooth and the consistency or normal whipped cream. Place a dollop on top of the milkshake then top with shredded coconut. Enjoy!
