I was really stumped as to what to name this drink.
It’s not a smoothie because I used some frozen yogurt in it, but it was still pretty healthy.
I guess, anyway.
At least, I’m saying it was healthy.
It sure tasted darn good anyway and looked very appetizing.
Toasted Coconut Almond Shake – serves 1
8 scoops fat free vanilla frozen yogurt – I’m thinking it came out to be about 2-2 1/2 cups
1 cup almond milk
3 tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut, toasted and pulsed a few times in the food processor, plus additional for garnishing the rim of the glass
1 1/2 teaspoons flaxseed meal
chocolate syrup for the rim of the glass and drizzling on the inside
Put a small amount of chocolate sauce in a circle the size of the rim of the glass on a plate.
Place some of the toasted coconut onto a plate.
Drizzle some chocolate sauce on the inside of the glass and then dip the rim into the chocolate sauce on the plate.
Dip the chocolate-rimmed glass into the coconut so that it is covered. Set aside.
In a blender combine frozen yogurt, almond milk, 3 tablespoons toasted coconut and flaxseed meal.
Blend until smooth.
Carefully pour into prepared glass and serve, garnishing with some additional toasted coconut on the top.
I rate everything I make on a scale of 1-4 with 4 being the best and this Toasted Coconut Almond Shake earned 3 1/2 rolling pins.
I really liked this one.
The combination of the frozen yogurt, coconut and chocolate really tasted good, and there was a slight hint of almond.
I will definitely be making this one again!
The rest of the family enjoyed it as well, except for my son who was disgusted with the coconut.
“Mom, I don’t like coconut!”, he yells after he takes a sip.
Uh, didn’t you just ask me what was all over the rim of the glass and then take a sip ANYWAY??!!
What the heck?? And now it’s MY fault for you choosing to drink it.
GOOD GRIEF, kid!
