This was actually quite good. I loved the flavor. I didn’t have coconut sugar so I used Stevia and I can’t stand over a stove so I just heated my milk in the microwave then added it to my Vitamix with all the ingredients and blended away. I love it. My new favorite to dry with maybe coconut milk next time, maybe some nutmeg and or cloves for Christmas. Wow, at least you gave me something more to think about.
Thank you very much for this recipe.
