Berries + Coconut Milk

Berries + Coconut Milk // shutterbean

I had a little coconut milk leftover from the waffles this weekend, so I put it to good use with this simple snack. Last night I had a SUPER craving for sugar. I learned that if I eat anything that has onions in it, my brain is like YOU NEED SUGAR RIGHT NOW. It’s weird. Instead of dipping into some ice cream,  I put some berries in a bowl, drizzled some coconut milk on top (it was unsweetened). I finished it off with a little sprinkle of coconut on top. It’s so good!  I had it again for breakfast this morning but added a banana and a little drizzle of agave syrup on top. It’s kind of my new favorite thing.

    Yum! I’m totally obsessed with coconut anything so this is right up my street! And it’s dairy free yay!

  • Maryea {happy healthy mama}

    Such pretty berries! Love this simple snack.

  • Katrina @ Warm Vanilla Sugar

    So simple!! This looks great!

  • Laura

    Yum…I’m going to try this, thanks! I’ve been using unsweetened coconut milk in smoothies. For breakfast I had a smoothie with coconut milk, banana, ice, and PB2. Have you ever had PB2? It’s powdered peanut butter – perfect for smoothies!

    Es que la leche de coco combina bien con todo!

  • Sarah R.

    That looks so simple and so good!Berries and coconut milk are now on my mental grocery list.

  • Todd

    Whoa, that’s what I’m eating right now…crazy!

  • Taylor

    Yum! This looks and sounds delicious! I love a good alternative to ice cream whenever my brain does the same thing. Usually if I have anything with onion or garlic in it, that’s when I’m like SUGARRRR!!! haha.


  • Carly

    I’m the same! Onion or garlic breath after supper and I crave chocolate! I usually try to pop a piece of gum in my mouth or have a cup of flavoured tea.

    I have never commented, but I visit at least once a day. On the podcast recently, you said that people don’t comment on the healthy stuff; I love the healthy stuff! You have no idea how excited I get for Thursdays.

  • Sophie Harriet

    I never would have thought to do this, but what a great idea! Whenever I think coconut milk, I instinctively assume all I will make is a Thai curry, but this is a fantastic alternative!

    So this is one of the most beautiful food ads that I ever seen!

  • Heidi

    Coconut milk from a can or coconut milk in the refrigerated carton?

    • Tracy

      I used canned. I didn’t know you could get it in a carton. I only knew coconut water to be in a carton. Cool!

  • Mary @ flavorrd

    Yum, what a good idea! Berries and cream, tropical style.

  • Elise

    This is so good! Thanks for sharing great healthy recipes.

  • HilaryT

    This looks perfect. I always have coconut milk around for making tikka masala. I will try this. I feel the same about onions!

    • Tracy

      I need to make more chicken tikka masala. It’s been years and I forgot how much we love it. Thanks for the reminder.

  • Ella

    I just tried this and it was SO good! unsweetened lite coconut milk, unsweetened shredded coconut, agave over raspberries and blackberries. Thanks for sharing!
