Coconut milkshake ingredients

- Chocolate Sauce: Any kind of chocolate sauce works perfectly. If you're looking for a homemade version, check out this easy chocolate sauce.
How do you make a chocolate milkshake with coconut?
I'm literally crazy about this flavor combination. Chocolate and coconut are truly a match made in heaven. To make this delicious coconut milkshake, start with some scoops of very, very cold ice cream and put them in a blender jar. Next, add coconut flakes, coconut milk and chocolate sauce. Blend for eight to ten seconds until it's all combined and serve immediately.
Should I use sweetened or unsweetened coconut flakes?
As ice cream and chocolate sauce are sweet on their own, I recommend you using unsweetened coconut flakes to keep the sweetness balanced in this milkshake.
Can I make this coconut milkshake without ice cream?
Yes! Simply use frozen yogurt instead of ice cream, but be aware that it might not end up being as creamy as when it's made with ice cream.
And if you're a big coconut lover, you should try toasting the coconut flakes for some minutes in a pan over medium heat or on a baking sheet in the oven. Toasted coconut will taste richer.
