It doesn’t get simpler than this: Mancinelli recommends blending up a few strawberries with some full-fat coconut milk or watered-down coconut cream. One medium strawberry has just 1 gram of carbs. You can also add a tiny bit of vanilla extract as an aromatic, or some coconut flakes or chia seeds for texture. Pro tip: Opt for frozen strawberries for a frothy frozen drink.
