Keep it Cool in Summer

We all love milkshakes. I can taste the flavor of my favorite kind (peanut butter and Oreo cookie) on my tongue right now. Well guess what, you can make a Paleo milkshake. With the help of Turtle Mountain we have easily accessible coconut ice cream. You can also make your own coconut milk ice cream but this is probably a lot easier for you folks just to take it out of the freezer. It's time to get creative guys so here's what I got for you:

Crazy Good Coconut Milkshakes
- Hand full of ice
- 2 Scoops of plain Vanilla coconut milk ice cream
- 1 tablespoon almond butter
- 1/2 of a bananna
- 3 strawberries
- 1/3 - 1/2 can of light coconut milk (you can get it at Trader Joes)

- Put all ingredients into a blender
- Turn blender on
- Let it turn into the desired consistency
- Enjoy

You can take the base of ice, vanilla coconut ice cream and some coconut milk and mix in any kind of desired fruit. It would be good with strawberries, blueberries, mango, kiwi, raspberries, cherries, probably apples as well.

You might want to take a step on the wild side and throw in a dash of cinnamon or nutmeg in the shake as well. Mess around with some of those I am sure you can come up with some other great combinations.
