Flavia’s Coconut Milkshake

By Flavia Castro Anastasakis | Makes 1 Milkshake

This ridiculously simple milkshake has very fond memories for me. On the last week of the Health Educator Program, we all took part in a raw food presentation, which involved preparing 4 raw dishes for 40 people. Our recipes revolved around a coconut theme, and Flavia cleverly whizzed up these ingredients together with the items we had left over. She’s not one for waste! And it was delicious, btw.


  • Coconut water (equal amount height-wise in blender to coconut meat)
  • Coconut meat
  • 3-4 dates, pitted and roughly chopped
  • ½ tsp each of cinnamon and crushed cardamom – or just one of them


  1. Blitz quickly in a Vitamix or other high-powered blender.
  2. Drink it, savouring every last drop.
