Sweet Coco Love

sIt’s nice by itself, as a starter or a side.. Soup is always good! And I don’t think I only speak for myself if I say rich creamy soups are the best. Soup is perfect for a rainy autumn day or for when it’s snowing in the winter, but to be honest, I think soup is always a good idea! This soup makes me very very happy. I combined 2 of my favourite things: Sweet potatoes and coconut cream. Before I even made this recipe I knew it was going to be heavenly. And I was right. It’s so creamy, full of flavour, filling and very healthy. Does this sound good to you? Where are you waiting for?

That’s why I came up with this very creamy milkshake. It’s the tastiest thing and so simple to make. I always have these ingredients in my house and I don’t want to come across as bossy.. but so should you! Haha! Remember to at least always have a can of coconut milk in your fridge and frozen bananas in your freezer. Because this milkshake is a perfect snack in the afternoon or to use before/after a work out. I’m sure you can find a good time and a good reason to drink it. Here we go..
