Last playdate I served for all kids: three out of fours enjoyed it, while one was not in the mood not to drink, or eat. Just play.
Mothers also enjoyed it. Darienne would add some cardamom to it, and I am still wondering what else I could add to it.
So, here's the beauty of a very simple drink that looks like milk, smells like summer and mainly makes everybody happy:
Silky Coconut Frappé
I also tried a second version with Almond Vanilla Milk, and loved it. So, if you have a lactose intolerant loved one, that's a good alternative. This recipe is for two cups of frappé.
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 cup 2% milk or Almond Milk (or rice dream, soy etc)
Sugar to taste
6 ice cubes
Shaved unsweetened coconut to garnish
In a blender, mix all in low speed. Serve cold in a tall glass, while the white foam is still there. If you don't have a electric blender, just use a cocktail shaker, but make sure to not strain it.
This was so refreshing! Loved this.
I thought frappes had ice cream though. I'm really confused by cold blended drinks lately though. More of a personal problem.
This sounds so yummy! Are you using coconut milk from a can, or the (newer to me) coconut milk that you can purchase like dairy in the cooler section?
Can't wait to make it!
Hey Jennifer, I used the canned one from Trader Joe's. It is light, and has no preservatives or any weird stuff in it. I would love to see the one you mentioned, but it's not yet available yet where I hang around shopping. But I am sure that all will work fine. Can you believe I have a friend that does coconut milk from scratch : ) ?!
Thanks Anna - I've got that on my shelf (always), so we'll be having a frappe this afternoon for snack!
