  • an omg drink

    Went to a Vietnamese cafe for din dins the other night, and was encouraged to try the coconut shake. It was delicious but very sweet and my initial attempt at asking what was in it didn't go well (the answer was yes OK with lots of nodding) so I decided I had to try to make one at home. Still experimenting but its pretty damn good so far.

    I use a good stick blender, my food processor can't do ice.

    Handful of ice
    1/4 of a tin of coconut milk
    Same volume coconut water
    Small handful of fresh pineapple
    Squeeze of lime juice

    Blend til smooth

    You can take the fruit out and its still amazing. Perfect hangover cure too :-) especially if you add some vodka

    Sounds delicious.

    What are those Vietnamese drinks called that have the tapioca balls in them? Kinda look like fish eyes? They are always way too sweet but it might be interesting to replicate at home.

          gaaaah. the texture of tapioca pearls freaks me the f**k out. run for the hills.
          As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

            that looks like a pretty yummy drink- like a virgin pina colada or something. Just added the ingredients to my shopping list!

              I love that stuff. The boba drinks in the Asian restaurants always come with a really big straw to slurp them up with.

              This thread inspired me to get some at my local Asian grocery store. I got some black ones and some green tea ones.

                I had this for breakfast this morning, it was really good (and would probably be great with rum)!
