Spring is quickly approaching and recipes for warm, comforting foods will soon be replaced with those for fresh, light foods. Here in Michigan we’re still trapped in our ‘warm one day, cold the next’ cycle and I still enjoy a nice drink that helps warm a person through to the bones.
This last winter, one of my favorite drinks was that made with coconut milk. Rich and already slightly sweet, it seems indulgent before you add anything else.
- 12 ounces coconut milk
- 2 tsp maple syrup
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1-2 pastured egg yolks*
- Warm milk on stove until about 125 degrees (until steaming). If you buy canned whole coconut milk, diluted with water in a 1:1 ratio.
- In order to add in the egg yolks, beat them lightly in a bowl first. While stirring the yolks, add in ¼ cup of the steamer slowly into the yolks. Once incorporated and warmed through, pour the contents of the bowl slowly into the pan while stirring.
- Stir in maple syrup and vanilla and pour into your favorite mug.
- You can also turn this into hot cocoa by adding in 2 tsp of cocoa powder.
