Coffee Recipe: Exotic Island Coconut Freeze

Exotic Island Coconut Freeze

* 2 tb Coco Lopez Cream of Coconut
* 1/2 cup half and half or whole milk (Silk vanilla flavor works well for those who do not drink milk)
* 1 tsp Hershy’s Special Dark or Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate Syrup
* 2 shots espresso
* 1 tb sugar
* 1/8 tsp banana flavoring if wanted (just adds a hint of banana and is actually very good)
* pinch of shredded coconut
* 1 cup ice

Quite Simple Directions:

Be sure to let espresso cool before putting it into the blender. All ingredients will be placed into the blender and blended until smooth. Pour into a tall glass and top with whipped cream if desired. Also, drizzle dark chocolate for an added delight. Don’t forget to sprinkle the coconut shaves on top. Very simple recipe that is absolutely dreamy and delicious!

Note about product links: I only include links to products for my recipes that I find to be superior to any other. On the cream of coconut… you can get a less expensive brand but you’re going to know it once you taste it. Sort-of kills the fantastic flavor of this fine coffee drink.

You may substitute the espresso with 1/4 cup extremely strong coffee or 1 tb dark roast instant coffe though you will not get the premium flavor with the substitutions.

  1. Hi,Had to check on the Ascaso website but the duo has a brass thmocoblrek for coffee and a brass 325cc boiler for steam. We have used one here in the office and found it particularly good for espresso and cappuccinos /lattes ie milk based drinks.You are correct that it also used a vibration pump as does the fracino -so I suppose my point does come down to the differential in price [ I will have to take a closer look at the ‘heavenly ].We have had some FCX1 and Gems in for repair and whilst over 1 year old but less than two the paintwork on the Gem had bubbled and there was rust underneath I felt that was fairly poor for what had been a fair investment for the cafe owner.Years ago I was at a trade fair and someone mentioned to me that Frank [ the owner ] only wanted to pay 95p for components when everyone else paid a35 you perhaps were left with a feeling that if you screwed a whole lot of cheaper parts together you might get a machine that was cheaper than the competition but not so reliable?
