Since I'm avoiding dairy this week, had leftover coffee from yesterday and wanted a cold sweet version after my breakfast, I decided to make a chilled mocha. It turned out really well without milk, cream or half and half. Or maybe, on Day Three Without Cream, I'm more accepting (ha!).
Take 1 heaping tablespoon of each of the following:
Cream of coconut (chilled)
Thai coconut milk (chilled--just the liquid part, not the solids)
Stevia in the Raw
Slowly heat all to mix. Add to about 1-1/2 cups of cold coffee. Stir. Add ice.
In fact, I wasn't paying close enough attention to my heated ingredients and was beginning to make a pudding. Next time, I may try that, on purpose.
Also, after using them yesterday, I refrigerated the opened cans of coconut milk and coconut cream. Today, the chilled milk turns richer, thicker--more like cream. Since I add dairy cream straight from the fridge to my coffee, why not add chilled-thick coconut milk straight from the fridge to my coffee? I'll try that next . . . .
