2 servings


  • 1 cup grated fresh coconut without skin
  • 2 cups chilled dairy milk
  • 1/2 tsp cardamom powder
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 cup crushed ice cubes, or as needed
  • 2 almonds, blanched, peeled and slivered, for garnish


  1. Grate the coconut using the larger holes of the grater.
  2. Add the grated coconut to a grinder. Add 1/3 cup milk and grind the coconut fine. Put the ground coconut in a sieve and press with a ladle to squeeze out the milk in a bowl. Transfer the coconut pulp to the blender jar again and add in the cardamom powder, sugar and half of the remaining milk and repeat the process. Repeat the process a final time using the remaining milk.
  3. Wash the blender jar and put in the coconut milk and crushed ice. Blend for a few seconds.
  4. Transfer the milkshake to glasses, garnish with almond slivers and serve.
