Shavuah Tov Everyone! What a nice relaxing Shabbos this week!
With these long Friday Nights, 7PM feels like 11PM and I find that my family goes to bed early and sleeps late – WhooHo! Which means we are well rested and when Saturday Night comes around we are ready to get out of the house and go have a night out!
With all this extra well rested energy, I am feeling in a coconut type of mood. So tonight’s drinks is one of my favorites to make, super easy and super delicious.
I always have coconut sorbet in the house for Shabbos – I prefer it over the pareve vanilla ice cream and serve it for dessert almost every Friday night in addition to whatever else I have made for dessert. It is refreshing, creamy and if you love coconut like I do, really so tasty and yummy.
I particularly love the combination of coconut and chocolate, and this shake makes the best use of this fantastic combination.
For those who want to know – I always buy Sharons brand coconut sorbet, but any brand will do.
Mocha Coconut Shake
chocolate ice cream
1 cup milk
3 tbsp. toasted coconut
In a blender add 2 scoops of coconut sorbet to one scoop chocolate sorbet, toasted coconut and blend with milk. Pour into a glass that has been chilled and topped with whip cream, a drizzle of chocolate syrup and garnish with some more toasted coconut.
I also many times add a little variation with a shot of espresso, ice and chocolate syrup instead of the chocolate ice cream to keep the calories down and get a caffeine boost if I need it.
