You asked for it, and we’ve got it! This recipe is actually a fan request. I gave it a try yesterday and it must have been good because when I asked Angel to try it, he took a sip and then asked for a bowl. Then ate a little more later in the evening, so I’m thinking it was a success.
This particular recipe is like a sweet, fruit gazpacho. And it’s naturally sweet. That’s right, we don’t add any sugar. I personally like it that way, but if you like it sweeter, I would add about 1/8 cup of agave or natural raw sugar. Again, we don’t do this, but if you like sweeter foods, you may want to add a little.
2 cups Strawberries (hulled and chopped)
1 cup Orange Juice**
1 cup Coconut Milk (the thick kind)
1 tsp Vanilla Extract (or 1 small bean)
5 Mint leaves
** If you are squeezing fresh oranges, you may want to use 1/2 cup Orange Juice, as fresh has a much stronger flavor than pre-squeezed juice (even if it is 100% not from concentrate without pulp – which is what we used). Add a little more coconut milk or water if you need it to be a thinner consistency if you are fresh-squeezing the oranges.
Put all ingredients in a blender (or a Bullet! My favorite!) and puree. Serve chilled and garnish with strawberries.
