Creamy Coconut And Caramel Drink
It was a freezing cold day, the fire was lit and I was chilling out for the afternoon catching up on some Greys Anatomy so I decided to make a yummy drink to go with this cosy afternoon and this drink was just perfect.
INGREDIENTS1/2 cup shredded coconut 4 dates 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 cup boiling water
Its a combination of rich creamy smooth coconut, along with the warmth of the spices that gives it this really nourishing indulgent feel. The blender I used was high speed and could cope with the hot water, so do be careful and make sure you blender can handle this as I would hate to see you melt your blender with the boiling water.
By using the boiling water it helped bring out the creaminess of the coconut and turn it into this rich smooth drink. Great drink to make the kids after school on these cold winter nights and you could easily turn it into a chocolate drink by adding in some raw cacao powder.
Place all the ingredients into a high speed blender and blitz up for 2-3 minutes until creamy and smooth.
