Slurping this Cape Verdean inspired coconut milkshake is a lesson in the happy things sugar can do for us. The cinnamon sticks are the best part – as you dunk them in the milkshake and lick them clean, the cinnamon flavor fills your mouth. Try it!
Please note: this recipe is just for fun – inspired by the authentic recipe from Cape Verde for Coconut Milk. You’d be more likely to find this at a resort on the island than in someone’s home.
3 cups ice cream
3/4 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup milk (optional – depends how thick you like your shakes)
cinnamon or cinnamon sticks for garnish
Scoop your ice cream.
Keep going until you have 3 cups!
Add the ice cream to your blender…
Pour in the coconut milk…
And the regular milk – if you like your shake on the thinner side…
Blend and serve immediately. Make sure you garnish with cinnamon sticks or the whole recipe is ruined. I’m not kidding.
