A deliciously filling berry drink to celebrate summer.

I sometimes make double the amount of this pretty pink drink and put the extra into a big glass jar in the fridge for another day. Often the kids get to it before I can, of course. The strawberry moustache can be a giveaway with my youngest son, Finn. The coconut milk will keep you full for a while by the way – so that’s why it’s satisfying. Did I mention it is mouth-wateringly delicious too? I know this because my kids – who I dub ‘the chief taste-testers’ – love it too. I love berries and it’s so much fun to find a farm where you can pick your own. Check out pickyourown.org to find a farm to visit when the fruit is in season. Take the family on the weekend and pick strawberries to eat and get lots for the freezer too. That way, you can make this recipe with the freshest produce while supporting a local business.
