Coconut Corn Smoothie – This Malay style smoothie is a refreshing summertime treat. It’s also a delicious addition to any Chinese New Year Menu!
Have you ever had corn in a smoothie?
I bet you are surprised to see corn in a smoothie. I know I was the first time I saw this drink at my favorite Malaysian restaurant here in NYC. As I have made it my life mission to try everything at least once, I chose this drink over and above the lychee and rambutan drinks you will encounter at most Southeast Asian restaurants.
I therefore based this recipe off of the delicious Coconut Corn drink I had at Nyonya. Corn is really big in Southeast Asia. If you ever visit Thailand where I was earlier this year, you will notice corn in everything from drinks to desserts and savory foods. I hope you enjoy my version of this Malay Style Asian Coconut Corn Smoothie.
What type of corn should you use?
Use sweet yellow corn. White corn is not as sweet and won’t taste as good in this delicious vegan smoothie.
You can use either fresh corn, frozen or canned whole kernel corn.
