Banana Maple Soft Serve & Smoothie Recipe using So Delicious Coconut Milk

Yet more creations for the company that produces the best coconut milk: So Delicious.  Long before I realized the many recipe contests they host such as this one, I became commited to using their coconut milk for the creaminess and taste that surpasses every other brand I've tried.  Go ahead, give these two recipes a shot; you'll be amazed.

Both of these recipes are entered into the "Sweet" category of the March Recipe Madness Contest, but you might be delighted to know that both recipes are quite healthy despite their sweetness, and are suitable for almost any dietary restriction or lifestyle.

These recipe is so easy, it's ridiculous.  This banana maple soft serve recipe literally takes less than 5 minutes to make, and you get to enjoy it immediately, so it's a great quick dessert.  For even more nutrients, add in the optional maca powder.

Banana Maple Soft Serve
Serves 2


2 ripe bananas, frozen
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
1/3 cup So Delicious unsweetened vanilla coconut milk
optional: 2 teaspoons maca powder


In a food processor, pulse frozen bananas and then add remaining ingredients, scraping down the sides as necessary until the mixture is the texture of soft serve.  Spoon into bowls and enjoy immediately, or freeze for 15-20 minutes if the mixture is too soft.

Leftover recipe ideas:  Store leftover soft serve in the freezer, and add to your favorite smoothie for breakfast for an additional nutritional twist and a sweet creamy version of your fave morning beverage.  Blend with cooled coffee for a healthy caffeine boost instead of an unhealthy (and expensive) sugary coffee drink.  See below for my fave version!


So Delicious Mocha Morning Smoothie
serves 1 to 2


1/2 cup frozen Banana Soft Serve (see above: banana, maple, coconut milk and optional maca)
3/4 cup So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut Milk
4 ice cubes
1/2 cup strong brewed coffee, cooled
1 tablespoon raw cacao powder or cocoa powder


1.  In a blender, blend well, adding more So Delicious Coconut Milk as needed to reach your desired texture.
