Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Spread the shredded coconut on a lined baking sheet and place in the oven for 3-5 minutes. You just want to toast it a little to bring out the flavor more. Set aside.
  3. Open the can of coconut milk and scoop out the fatty part. Place it in the blender . You can freeze the remaining water to use in smoothies.
  4. Also add the bananas, vanilla beans, dates and toasted coconut to the blender. (Save a little bit of the toasted coconut for garnish though.)
  5. Blend until smooth.
  6. For best results, serve immediately.

  1. This is amazing! My boys love it and said it tastes like ice cream :) i followed the recipe except for the vanilla bean. I used 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract. Will definitely make again!
    1. There is no leftover milk, only leftover water. I freeze that to add to smoothies. I like to freeze it in ice cube trays so I can pop out what I need. :)
    1. It's a dessert smoothie. I don't count calories, but if you are concerned, then maybe cut it in half? It would still be plenty satisfying at a smaller amount. :)
