Coconut Milkshake

Serves 2

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.

Ingredients:

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

Method:

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.
