Natalie's Coconut Spice Elixir
August 07, 2010

I was excited to finally try this recipe, as it has been in my recipe box for a long time... But I was a little disappointed! I only had about a cup of ice on hand, but I'm sure that didn't affect the recipe that much. I used freshly ground nutmeg, maybe about 1/4 teaspoon and it was just right. I think the cinnamon could be reduced to half a teaspoon too. I'm thinking that 2 tablespoons of honey and omitting the sugar would be better. Make sure to finely ground your flax or it will be gritty. I don't mind the texture though. This might be good with some fruit... While writing this review I remembered that I had some bananas in the freezer. Poured the remainder of my glass back in the blender with the rest and added a banana. With this addition, you could cut out the sugar and leave the honey as is, depending on how ripe the banana is. Also, the coconut flavour weakens this way... The coconut milk should be increased to 3/4 cup to a cup and the milk decreased to 1/3 cup to 1/2 cup. Next time I will make sure to use the full amount of ice and test out my tweaks, then it will be a 4 or 5 for sure.
