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 flavors in this mouth-watering Paleo Berries with Coconut and Lime recipe. You can also use frozen berries of your choice in this easy vegan and Paleo-friendly recipe. For a festive 4th of July dessert, I like to use blueberries and sliced red strawberries topped with the white coconut cream (as pictured). You can also top this dessert with our Coconut Whipped Cream recipe, adding a bit of vanilla extract or Paleo sweetener to the whipped coconut cream, if you like.

Comments

  1. 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.

    1. 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.

    1. 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.
