Valentines Chocolate + Coconut Shake Print Recipe Print Recipe

 

Valentines day. not a huge fan.

For one, I strongly dislike roses. I won’t even buy a bouquet if they’re in there. I know that’s not normal, but since when I have said/done anything “normal”. Exactly.

My husband and I like to be a little more spontaneous [& frequent] with our date nights, flower giving & special moments. It’s much more fun that way.

One of our favorite things is going out for fro-yo or making our own milkshakes.

This is one of my favorites and it’s super easy and in my mind, it’s the perfect valentines day treat. . .  or any day treat, really.

Have I mentioned I love coconut? I looooooove coconut. I could put it in almost anything.

Then you throw in chocolate and I’m in some version of heaven. It’s a beautiful thing.

 

Speaking of love for coconut, Joy just put together a post of all her coconut recipes. I need those waffles.

 

Chocolate + Coconut Milkshake

  • 3 tablespoons chocolate chips or carob chips
  • optional – spike it with a little almond liquor [amaretto]

Add more of ice cream too make it more creamy. More milk to thin it out. More chocolate for more… chocolate. You get the point.
