Coconut Purple Cows

For my 10th birthday party Mom made us Purple Cows from a recipe in my Betty Crocker kids cookbook.  The Cows were an instant party hit and have since become a little legend in our circle.  My gradeschool friend Brandi still asks sometimes, "Do you remember Purple Cows!?!" 

Of course I have never forgotten about that creamy-dreamy lavender-colored concoction!  In fact the recipe is so dear to my heart, I have decided to reinvent it for the modern vegan palate! 

My Coconut Purple Cow is a light, exotic twist on the original old-school favorite.  It's sweet, super-kid-friendly, totally refreshing and hard to beat on a hot summer day.  So, what are you waiting for?  Get your cow on!  :)

Coconut Purple Cows

1 pint Vanilla Coconut Bliss vegan ice cream

1 can frozen Grape Juice Concentrate

1 1/2 cups Vanilla Soy, Rice or Almond Milk  

(I like Horizon Organic vanilla soy milk and Whole Foods or Almond Breeze vanilla almond milk best for this recipe.)

1/2 cup light or regular Coconut Milk

Put all ingredients into a blender, and blend until smooth.  You can always add a few ice cubes if you like your shake thicker and icy cold.  Pour into pretty glasses and serve chilled with a straw and/or spoon.  Enjoy!
