What is in Mr Coconut shake?
An ingenious idea born in Singapore, Mr Coconut’s signature Coconut Shake is a thirst-quencher in our relentless heat. Their coconut shakes contain mainly fresh coconut pulp, coconut water, and coconut ice cream blended together with ice. This makes for a light, creamy drink that is packed with vitamins and minerals — considering how coconut is considered a superfood! The coconut shake also contains electrolytes that make it a good drink for you to replenish fluids with, especially after exercising.
Their signature drink is the Coconut Shake but Mr Coconut also has other flavour varieties on their menu including Coconut Oreo Shake and Coconut Avocado Shake.
1. Mr Coconut Shake Recipe
This easy-peasy recipe can be whipped up in just five minutes. The timing is also very much dependent on how quickly you can crack open the coconut! Read below for a pro tip on how to crack open the coconut when trying this Mr Coconut Shake recipe!
Prep time: ~5min
Cook time: ~2min (Blend time)
- 1 fresh coconut
- 2-3 scoops coconut ice-cream
- Large ice cubes
- Crack open a fresh coconut (available on LHH Vegetable) and pour the coconut water into a blender (available on Shopee Supermarket)
- Scoop about two spoonfuls of coconut ice cream (available on ckhfoodtrading) into the blender.
- Scoop out the coconut flesh and add it to the blender
Pro tip: Try locating the coconut’s natural center point. Tap along this line using the blunt end of a knife. Continue doing so until the husk starts to crack. Gently pry open the coconut along the crack lines to get two halves.
- Add ice cubes into the blender.
- Hit the start button on the blender. Stop blending when the mixture has thickened and when the ice cubes have completely blended.
- Pour the mixture into a tumbler (available on Miffy Official Store) and enjoy!

To open a coconut:
- Try locating the coconut’s eyes (usually located at one end of the coconut)
- Using a screwdriver, puncture holes into the eyes. You may need to use a hammer to knock the holes in.
- Once done, turn the coconut over an empty bowl for all the coconut water to drain out
- You can use the hammer to crack open the coconut husk. Hold the coconut firmly with one hand, and hammer the coconut while rotating it. Try to do this along the middle of the husk.
- Continue doing so until the husk starts to crack. Gently pry open the coconut along the crack lines to get two halves.
