Silk Almondmilk combined with coconut sorbet makes the perfect treat to beat the heat. Add a little garnish to the top the glass for some added fun.
I love coconut. It is something I can’t get enough of. Whether its fresh coconut, flaked coconut, or coconut milk, I’m in my happy place if coconut is involved.
If I can find a way to sip on a coconut drink all the better. If that coconut drink is a bit healthy then that’s a huge bonus. This is perfect for an after dinner treat.
Silk Almondmilk has new flavours, Silk Almond Coconut Blend in Unsweetened and Original and Silk Protein + Fiber Almondmilk in Vanilla and Original. Being a coconut fanatic I decided to try out their Coconut Blend.
The flavour is out of this world. After dinner I decided I wanted to make a milkshake but with a bit of a healthier spin on it. So I pulled out my Silk Almondmilk Coconut Blend, coconut sorbet and a blender. Score!
As my regular readers know I am wildly addicted to mason jars and shot glasses. I found some mini mason jar shot glasses while out shopping one day, and I knew they had to be mine. So I’ve been having a blast using them for food photos.
To amp up the cute factor I lined the edges of the glasses with coconut and sprinkles. It’s really easy to do. Just use a little corn syrup and you’re good to go. You can jazz up the rim with whatever floats your boat!
I hope you enjoy this one. They taste amazing and are cute as a button.

- 2 cups of Silk Almondmilk Coconut Blend
- 2 heaping scoops of coconut sorbet
- 1 teaspoon coconut extract
- Flaked coconut
In a blender combine all of the ingredients and pulse until the sorbet starts to break up a bit. Then turn it on high and blend until smooth.
In a small ramekin pour some corn syrup, honey or coconut milk. About 1 to 2 tablespoons is plenty.
In another ramekin pour some coconut, or sprinkles to top your rims with.
Now take the empty glass, invert it and dunk the rim into the corn syrup.
Remove and dunk immediately in the coconut or sprinkles.
Turn back over and allow to dry a bit.
Pour the milkshakes into the glasses.
Serve with a big old healthy smile!

I just love the taste and the cute factor of these milkshakes. I blended mine pretty smooth but you can leave the sorbet chunkier if you like them that way. Whatever works for you.
You could also use these for a weekend treat by adding a little alcohol to them. That zips them up if you have company visiting.
I hope you get a chance to try these. It’s a great way to beat the heat. Summer is all about keeping cool. I figure a nice healthy treat during the week never hurt anyone. And when they’re in cute little jars who can resist right.
