      Beauty Latte

      • 12 ounces lait de coco (see below for recipe)
      • 1 teaspoon rose water
      • 2 teaspoons lucuma powder
      • ¼ teaspoon pearl powder
      • ½ teaspoon ground schisandra berries
      • 1 teaspoon raw honey or coconut sap, or 1 drop of stevia for a low-glycemic version
      • 1 teaspoon ghee or coconut oil
      • 1 tablespoon tocotrienols 

      Lait de Coco

      • 1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
      • ¼ cup young Thai coconut meat (one 5×2-inch strip), fresh or frozen
      • 4 cups water
      • Pinch pink salt
  • The Prep

      1. Gently warm the lait de coco in a saucepan over low heat, without allowing it to simmer. Carefully pour it into a blender. Add the rose water, lucuma, pearl, schisandra, sweetener, and oil. Blend on high for 20 seconds or until warm and frothy. Pour into a mug and serve topped with the tocotrienols.
      2. Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth, about 45 seconds. This milk will have a nice cream on top when cold, so shake and stir to evenly distribute.
