Maralyn is off to taste Caribbean cuisine in old San Juan this week at Taste of the Caribbean.

This recipe was sent to Bon Appetite over 3 years ago from Anna Gaspard from St. Lucia.

I make it for breakfast or lunch every summer. I never tire of these ingredients, although it is easy to substitute(blueberries for strawberries) or whatever you like.

The coconut is the key.

Coconut, Strawberry and Banana Smoothie
3/4 cup milk (I use whole milk and Maralyn uses non-fat or soy)
3/4 cup cream of coconut (I use CoCo Lopez)
1 bag of frozen strawberries – 15-16 ounces, unsweetened
1 banana, peeled and diced.

Blend all ingredients until smooth.
Garnish with a strawberry, or a mint sprig.
