  • 1 1/2 c. coconut milk I use my homemade coconut milk, which is free of any gums or sketchy stuff; see link in the notes
  • 1 T. sweetener of your choice


  • In a medium saucepan, bring the milk and sweetener to a low, brief boil.
  • Stir the milk, and quickly reduce the heat to low, creating a low simmer.
  • Let the milk and sugar mix reduce for about 1-2 hours, until the resulting mixture looks thickened and is about 1/4 of the original amount (see the popsicle stick pictures below).
  • Remove from heat (it will continue to thicken up!).
  • Use or store in the fridge.
