PINK DRINK

  • 1 cup Freeze Dried Strawberries, or fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 1/2 cup sugar, I LIKE coconut sugar
  • 1/4 - 1/2 tsp Green Coffee Bean Powder* (the powder of about two capsules broken open)
  • 1 cup white grape juice
  • 2 cups coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup fresh sliced strawberries, for garnish
  • ice

Instructions
  1. Add the freeze dried strawberries, sugar, white grape juice and green coffee bean powder to a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and simmer for ten minutes, stirring occasionally so the liquid does not burn.
  2. Pour the strawberry mixture through a fine mesh strainer, capturing the liquid into a wide lipped cup or bowl. Gently push the liquid out of the strawberries. **
  3. Allow the liquid to cool. Using freeze dried strawberries should yield about 1/4 cup of syrup, fresh strawberries will make about 1/2 cup. (You can speed up the process by placing the liquid in the refridgerator or freezer, just do not use a glass container as it will crack)
  4. Add a few strawberry slices to the bottom of a serving glass and fill glass with ice. Add the cooled syrup, then add the coconut milk. (Using the fresh strawberry syrup will have less room for the coconut milk so adjust the milk amount accordingly)
  5. To be even more  authentic, add everything to a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously before pouring back into your serving glass.
  6. Top with the fresh strawberries
