Instructions for making with a blender:
Blend all the ingredients together in a blender for the same amount of time, and then pour through a nut milk bag or several layers of cheesecloth.
Once this is chilled, the coconut fat will solidify at the top and some of the sediment may settle. You can skim the fat off the top, or pour it through a small strainer if you don't want that in your drink. OR you can warm it up and whisk it together again to incorporate the coconut oil back into the drink.If you'd like to make this recipe without a Nutramilk, you can blend the ingredients in a blender for the same amount of time, and pour through a nut milk bag or several layers of cheesecloth.
