I think this is the creamiest smoothie I’ve ever had. This is the first smoothie I’ve made with coconut milk, and I love how super creamy and smooth it turned out! I modified a recipe from Del’s Cooking Twist by adding some banana and sweetening it with honey. Yum! I made this smoothie on a very warm day and it was so refreshing. Now that I know how great coconut milk is in smoothies, I’ll have to try more flavors with it!

Looks awesome honey x
Thank you! 🙂
Yummy I love smoothies and have never used coconut milk will try it.
I love coconut milk in my smoothies too Nancy! Even though I’m not dairy-free, I actually prefer it. To me, cow’s milk just tastes too meaty among all those fresh fruits! lol. I’m loving the pretty pink color of this smoothie and the complementing presentation! Gorgeous 🙂
Thanks so much! 🙂
I’ve yet to try coconut milk in a smoothie, Nancy, and I think you’ve convinced me! It sure is yummy looking…it almost looks like a milkshake.
We’ve hit a particularly picky food phase with our Little Man but he’s still drinking smoothies so you can bet I’ll be making this for him! 🙂
I’m sure he will like this! 🙂
