This drink is absolutely extraordinary! It's not too complicated and delivers big on flavor. Trust us. Or don't and try it yourself. 😉 Please give it a go, even if you think you don't usually enjoy the taste of coconut, the coconut milk's flavor is not overpowering at all. And please do let us know what you think.
