Berries with Coconut and Lime

berries-with-coconut-and-lime

Thick, full-fat coconut milk and lime make a fantastic combination and are a great complement to a bowl of fresh berries. The coconut milk has the consistency of whipped cream and the lime brightens the flavor. You can also use frozen berries of your choice.

    Wasn’t sure about this, but wow, I am impressed. Coconut and lime go very well together, and once all mixed, I liked this more liquidy than creamy. I would definitely make it again.

    Can you use frozen berries?

    • Neely

      Robyn W – Yes! It’s a great way to save money, and I personally think that thawed berries are better because of the syrupy juice that comes out of them.

    Is cream of coconut the same thing as whole fat canned coconut milk?

    • Neely

      angela l – I believe that cream of coconut is like sweetened condensed milk in that it has sugar in it. Lots of it. So it’s coconut milk plus sugar. I’m not totally sure that’s the case all the time, so just make sure you look at the ingredient list (always look at the ingredient list on any food) and make sure it’s just “coconut, water, guar gum” or if you can find it without the guar gum, even better.

    What a great, simple snack! Surprising how much the coconut milk can seem like whipped cream. Thank you!
