Butterscotch Shake

During her recent visit, Heathy accidentally came upon the following combination. I couldn't get over how much it tasted like butterscotch! And to think of all the dessert possibilities awaiting...

Butterscotch Shake

Serves 2 or 3

3 med. frozen bananas
2 cups almond milk
1/3 cup young coconut meat
2 Medjhool dates
1 tbs lucuma
1 tsp maca
1 tsp vanilla powder (or 2 tsp vanilla extract)
1/2 cup coconut water, regular water or almond milk

Blend in high-speed blender until smooth.

Carmella's Notes:
~ If the shake is too thick, simply add a little water until desired consistency is reached.

~ Remember that in a pinch, you can make almond milk by blending 2 tablespoons of almond butter with 2 cups water.

I couldn't find lucuma at my Health Food Store. Would it affect the taste negatively to make it without it? Or is there a substitute?

Also, I have a question about coconuts. I have never used a fresh one before. I have had one sitting in my fridge for a month or two. Will it still be good and how would I tell if it was bad? Thanks. I buy these things and never get around to making the recipe but I really want to try the butterscotch shake!!

Suzq,

I think it's still going to be delicious without lucuma, just not as butterscotch-like maybe.

Hum, I'm no big expert on fresh coconuts, but I'd say it depends on how fresh it was when you first got it. I've had one in the fridge for a month and it was still fine. A telltale of when it's going bad is if it has moldy or rusty spots on the white shell. But then the real determining factor will be if it doesn't taste right.

Hope you enjoy the Shake!

This is such a great recipe. Today, I added a couple of dashes of cinnamon and a large white peach.

Butterscotch is one of my favorite flavors. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

As far as coconuts going bad? You just know. When you crack it open, there is the most horrible smell, there is absolutely no doubt in your mind. Ick.

Question Young Coconut Meat

Is there anything I can use to substitute for the young coconut meat? Those aren't easy, or cheap, to find where I live. :-(

Have you ever been to an Asian market? That's where we get our young coconuts and they are half the price of the ones at whole foods. Sometimes they'll even let you buy a whole case for a small discount. With nine coconuts the possibilities abound Ice cream, shakes, coconut cream pie, those are the things we like to make.
