  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup sugar or sweetener of choice*
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp granulated kanten or agar agar

  1. Heat the coconut milk, sweetener and vanilla in a medium sized sauce pan until it reaches a low boil.
  2. Sprinkle 3/4 tsp of the kanten/agar in to the coconut milk mixture and stir it to help it dissolve.
  3. Continue stirring for approximately 5 minutes.
  4. Be sure to keep it at a low boil, don’t allow it to boil rapidly. You don’t want to scorch it!
