Creamy Chai Coconut Shake

I live in a tropical country with summer all year round. Despite that, I only got to know how delicious coconut water was only last year!

Coconut water is really refreshing from the fridge. It's the best thing on Earth on a hot summer day!

In fact, my raw foodie friend only drinks coconut water! She doesn't even drink normal boiled water!! Every morning, her mum would crack open a few coconuts and pour the delicious drink into recycled glass bottles and just store them in the fridge for drinking.

Because coconut water is so delicious, I decided to make a shake based on it! :D And of course, my favourite Chai spice shall be the star!!!

I added coconut flesh to make it creamy. If you blend coconut flesh, you will get coconut milk (with some chewable bits though. If you want it smooth, just pour through a filter), so it's really fragrant!

This recipe makes 2 creamy shakes so you can share it with your friend, or just have it both by yourself! ^^

Ingredients (Makes 2 creamy shakes):

- 400ml young Thai coconut water
- 40g young Thai coconut meat
- 20g agave nectar / maple syrup / honey
- 2 teaspoons chai spice mix
- 2 teaspoon soy lecithin powder/ soymilk powder / 100ml unsweetened soymilk *if using sweetened soymilk, you may omit or reduce agave nectar
- 1 cup ice cubes
- cinnamon/nutmeg powder for garnish

1. Place all the ingredients in a high-powered blender and blend until smooth. You can add more chai spice or sweetener according to your own taste.

2. Sprinkle cinnamon powder over this refreshing creamy drink!
