If you haven't had it, you just can't understand. You can try, but it will be hard.
This weeks Pintervention was to make my own diy coffee syrup.
Of course, I chose coconut.
Here's what you do:
Gather your ingredients.
Here's what you need:
¾ cup sugar
¾ cup water
¼ cups cream of coconut*
2 tsp. coconut extract
Combine the sugar, water and cream of coconut in a small saucepan. Heat the mixture over medium-high, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from the heat and stir in the coconut extract. Let cool. Store in the refrigerator.
I've been using this for about a week.
It is not my Coffee mate.
But it is good.
I don't see myself switching to this full time, but it will do if I need to make some up in a pinch.
