Rose Infused Coconut Milk

I know I say I’m excited for a lot of recipes, but I’m #EXTRA excited for this one!

A couple years ago, I got really into loose leaf teas. I loved going to the local tea shop (S/O to Urban Teahouse!), trying new teas, and buying up all the loose leaf. I even got a single cup brewer for my desk at work.

As a result of this loose leaf tea obsession, I discovered the taste of rose. At the time, you could be dried rose buds from Sprouts and make rose tea. My location no longer has these, but don’t worry, because I found a huge bulk bag online from a family farm. Done deal.

Anyway, I follow a plant based dietitian on Instagram, Brittyn Howard (aka @localrootsdietitian), and she posted a recipe for lavender infused coconut milk. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to make a rose infused version!

So, all credit for this original recipe goes to Brittyn! Try her Lavender Coconut Milk if you’re not a big fan of rose.

This recipe is perfect for…

Lattes

Smoothies

Tea

Drinking by itself!

Adding to oats & cereal (would pair perfectly with fresh strawberries, too!)

Drinking while watching The Bachelor 😉 Will you accept this rose?!

Rose is just so soothing and warm. I’m ready to cuddle up with a rose infused latte now! Let’s get into it…

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut shreds
  • 4 cups hot water
  • 2 tbsp dried rose buds
  • optional: date sugar, agave, whole pitted dates, or any other sweetener

Instructions

  1. Place water & coconut into a blender and blend on high for 3-4 minutes.
  2. Add in dried rose buds and blend for another 1-2 minutes.
  3. Pour mixture into either a nut milk bag or a french press.
    • If using nut milk bag, place a bowl under the bag to catch the liquid. Squeeze the liquid out until there is a moderatey dry pulp left in the bag.
    • If using a french press, pour entire mixture into your french press, then press the pulp down, just like you would press coffee grounds down to separate from liquid.
  4. Pour milk into milk bottle or airtight container and store for up to 4 days (if it lasts you that long…).
