coconut apple pie toddy
September 30, 2015
But I made an interesting drink out of coconut milk. I think it might have been even better using coconut milk from a can - I used coconut milk that comes in a container like almond milk and that's a bit more diluted and has guar gum 'n stuff, which is some kind of thickener. My advice would be to go for real and true coconut milk, and not the low fat kind.
apple pie spice from last year. So I threw that in. You have to use a hefty amount to really be able to taste it - a good half to 1 teaspoon per cup. I tried it with just the spices and the coconut milk. It tasted healthy. I wanted it to taste like a treat. So then a half teaspoon or so of honey went into my warmed up coconut milk and whirled around, and THEN it tasted like a treat.
(*if you don't have apple pie spice, a 1/4 teaspoon EACH of cinnamon and nutmeg will do the trick. maybe more, just start slow and keep adding until you have the right amount of spice.)
So make this warming drink, or some incarnation of it, and be happy. I will be wrapping up two big newborn sessions in the next couple of weeks, and I will be here as often as possible! With books, and spooks, and cozy treats.
(*one last note! it suddenly occurred to me while chatting in the comments, that what would really bring this over the top is a drizzle of caramel syrup or sauce, if you happen to have any. Doesn't that sound NICE??)
