Recipe type: Drink
Serves: 8
Ingredients
  • 1 cup of strawberries
  • ¼ cup water
  • ½ cup ice
  • 3 kiwis (one to slice for garnish)
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1-1/2 cup Coconut Milk
  • ¼ cup coconut extract
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 cup ice
Instructions
  1. Wash and hull your strawberries, cut in half and place into blender with sugar, water and ½ cup of ice.
  2. Blend until it reaches the consistency you desire. If you prefer to remove the seeds, omit the ice and strain the blended mixture using a sieve. Then return to the blender and blend with ice.
  3. Now pour a small amount into each glass and set aside.
  4. Rinse the blender and place the banana, 2 peeled kiwis, coconut milk, coconut extract, sugar and ice into it.
  5. Blend until it reaches the consistency you enjoy.
  6. Using a spoon, carefully pour the white layer onto the strawberry layer. If you pour into the middle it will push up the strawberry layer, creating a neat "bleed" effect which is a cool visual.
  7. Garnish with a kiwi slice and serve.
