Valentine Strawberry and Coconut Drink

Strawberry and Coconut Drink is a Valentine’s Day smoothie, easy to make for the kids! A simple three-element concoction made rapidly in the blender with ice and served with a topping of whipped cream and sprinkles.

Strawberry and Coconut Drink is so easy and incredibly delicious; the Valentine’s Day Smoothie base is only made of three ingredients: strawberries, coconut milk and ice cubes. However, I’ve added a topping of whipped cream and sprinkles to give it extra sweetness and fluff for Valentine’s Day. The technique was based on the Brazilian lemonade made with condensed milk, but I’ve switched the ingredients a bit. It could also be called a smoothie, but the consistency is more liquid.

The Sweet Factor

This drink is made for kids, so I left the sugar behind because my kids are used to low sugar. But if your kids have a sweet tooth, you can add a tablespoon of maple syrup, honey or sugar to your concoction. After all, Valentine’s Day should taste sweet! Coconut milk should, in theory, not contain extra sugar, although check the label to ensure you do not overdo the sugar. Coconut cream, on the other hand, is often sweetened up, so if you want some extra sugar, you can always use this. The strawberries will bring sweetness but might also bring acidity if not ripe. Adding a tablespoon of maple syrup will bring down the sourness of the strawberry.

The Perception is Key

I know that perception is key here; this Valentine’s Day smoothie is about appearance. That’s so shallow of me, I know. The kids want this sweet, fluffy and fun drink filled with strawberries for this special day; plus, you won’t get too exhausted by making this in under 5 minutes with less than five ingredients and a warranty of smiley kids. The topping is what will make the kids melt: a nice whipped cream with Valentine’s sprinkles; nobody can resist digging in. Whipped cream doesn’t even need to be sweetened if you want to keep it low-sugar; simply whipped up some heavy cream. The texture might be a tad less thick, but it will do wonders.
