  • 1 ½ cups coconut milk see 'Ingredients Needed' above
  • 1 ½ Tablespoons coconut sugar


  • In a medium saucepan, bring the milk and sugar to a low, brief boil.
  • Stir the milk to help dissolve the sugar, then reduce the heat a low simmer.
  • Let the milk and sugar mix reduce for about 45-60 minutes, until the resulting mixture looks thickened and is about 1/3 of the original amount.
  • Remove from heat (it will continue to thicken up!).
  • It is important to allow it to cool in the pan before transferring it to an airtight container.
  • Use or store in the fridge. Please see 'How to Store' above regarding reheating.
