strawberry coconut lime shake gluten free

Strawberry Lime Shake

I’m loving this gluten free, dairy free Strawberry Lime Shake made of fresh homemade coconut milk.  My boys love it too.  After I took a picture of the shake yesterday and placed it in the fridge, the boys grabbed it greedily and drank it all down.  They have a certain penchant for consuming my photo shoots like that.

Here’s the recipe so you can make your own.

Strawberry Lime Shake
Serves: 2
  • 1 ½ cups coconut milk
  • 1 10-ounce package frozen strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil (optional)
  1. Place all ingredients in a vitamix and puree on high speed until smooth
  2. Serve

If you are in the Chicago area this weekend the Gluten Free Cooking Expo (at The Wyndham Hotel) will be demonstrating some of my gluten free recipes on April 17th & 18th. You can still sign up at the Gluten Free Life Store.

Fast Recipes, a recipe website that covers news and trends in the culinary world, recently conducted an online interview with me called “Elana’s Pantry: Gluten-Free Recipes with an Almond Twist“. The interview was mostly about home cooking and of course and The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook. If you have a second pop on over and check it out.

Lastly I wanted to mention that a reader recently forwarded me a link to an online petition to encourage George Mason University to include menu items in their cafeteria to accommodate people with Celiac Disease and other autoimmune disorders. I think it’s a good cause and recommend you at least take a peek to see if you would like to sign the petition as well.

    can i add protein powder to this as a breakfast smoothie?
    Breakfast is my most challenging meal as a paleo eater, since I’m at my laziest.

    Hi Elana

    Thanks for this wonderful shake recipe, it certainly looks tempting enough for a try :). And i totally love the fact that you used your own coconut milk, actually i do the same for all of my recipes, its so much more yummy and cost effective. Although it does need some doing.

    thanks again.

    I was very excited to hear the review on KCBS (Narsai David) about your book and rushed to my computer to order it from Amazon. Who would think that, living in Berkeley, CA, I would not be able to find almond flour! Whole Foods, Berkeley Bowl, Safeway, TJ’s, Ashby Market and Andronico’s only carry Bob’s if they carry specialty flour at all. The internet to the rescue! Ordered it from Honeyville and am looking forward to its arrival so I can get started on the exciting recipes in your book.

    Yummy! I can’t wait to try this recipe. Fresh strawberries are just coming into season here, so I will use those instead of frozen. This should help me kick my craving for ice cream (at least until I have time to make some that’s dairy free)!

    This sounds delicious; I’m going to try it tomorrow. Don’t forget to use organic strawberries–conventionally grown strawberries are No. 6 on the Environmental Working Group’s list of the 12 most pesticide-laden fruits and veggies!

    I am sure the demos at the cooking show went off without a hitch. I love smoothies like this recipe it’s low on high-sugar fruits. I don’t have any trouble eating higher sugar fruits but when there is a high concentration of uber sweet fruit in a smoothie I feel awful. My favorite is still a good, dark green smoothie, though.

    That’s what you get for making something that looks so delicious!

    I am a smoothie freak. My current favorite is unsweetened vanilla almond milk, banana, strawberries, blueberries, silky tofu and cottage cheese. It tastes like cheesecake in a glass. I vary it, though. Sometimes just tofu, sometimes yogurt, sometimes just a lot of fruit, a little orange juice and almond milk.

    Now I have another version to try. Thanks!

    This is the first recipe in a LONG time that I have seen that makes me think “OH MY GOSH give me some of that RIGHT now” :) I wish I had some strawberries on hand.

    thanks for this. sounds good. how do you get the coc oil not to clump up? mine turns into hard little pieces whenever i mix it with anything cold.

    YUM! I’m all over this. I have coconut milk in the pantry, organic frozen berries, and a vitamix on the shelf! All I need is a lime =)
