When I saw that this soda was made with coconut milk, that got my attention. Fresh strawberries and coconut milk sounded pretty good! The original recipe that I found at Food.com also has sugar in it, but I substituted honey for the sugar. I also added extra strawberries.
This soda is creamy and fruity–a healthy way to enjoy a soda! This recipe is for a single serving, so if you need more servings, just multiply the ingredients by the number of servings you want to make.
VERY STRAWBERRY COCONUT CREAM SODA by NancyCreative, adapted from Food.com
Makes 1 (8-ounce) serving
- 1 cup fresh strawberries, hulled and halved
- 2 Tablespoons honey
- 2 Tablespoons refrigerated coconut milk
- Ice cubes
- Club soda or carbonated water, chilled
In a small bowl, combine the strawberries and honey, stirring so strawberries are coated with the honey. Then use a pastry blender to mash the strawberries. You’ll have about 2/3 cup of the mashed strawberry-honey mixture. Stir in the coconut milk and blend everything well.
Place the mashed strawberry-honey-coconut milk mixture in an 8-ounce glass. Fill the glass with ice, up to 1″ below the top rim of the glass. Then pour in the club soda, filling the glass to the top. Stir the cream soda with a straw or iced teaspoon, blending the club soda in with the other ingredients, and serve immediately. Serve with a straw and spoon, since the mashed-up strawberries clog up the straw occasionally!
I just had to make this before the end of summer, which is coming up soon! Even though I like autumn, I’m kind of sad to see summer end. How about you?
