Coconut Dream

Coconut DreamSheer lusciousness! A strawberry and coconut lover's dream. Imagine you're on a beach on a balmy summer's afternoon.

Recipe Ingredients:

2 handfuls (about 7 to 8 medium-large) strawberries, hulled
1 medium banana, peeled
2 tablespoons coconut milk
4 ice cubes

Cooking Directions:

  1. Juice the strawberries. Transfer to a blender with the banana, coconut milk and ice. Blend thoroughly.
  2. Serve topped with freshly shaved coconut if desired.

Makes 1 serving.

Food Factoids:

  • Strawberries supply the super-nutrient, ellagic acid, and vitamin C. Both coat the lining of the lungs and fight free radicals.
  • For an even healthier alternative, 2 tablespoons of silken tofu can be substituted for the coconut milk.
