Strawberries.You can use fresh or frozen strawberries. I prefer fresh strawberries as you can pretest them before using them. We need a strawberry with a rich taste and beautiful red color. Strawberries are a rich source of vitamin C, potassium, manganese, and antioxidants.
Mint leaves.The mint leaves will add an extra fresh kick. It harmonizes perfectly with the strawberries. Mint has many health benefits such as - is good for your oral health, is a good source of vitamin A and antioxidants, may help relieve indigestion, could improve your brain function, and many more.
Lime.We need to experience different flavors and lime is the perfect source for a sour touch.
Coconut milk.Not cream, simple coconut milk. It will not taste too much like coconut, just a simple taste.
Maple syrup.This is not a must. You can leave the extra sweetener out if you don’t like to add more sugar. The syrup is going to add a slight caramel touch and maple syrup has health benefits too.
