Dawet ( Javanese beverage, full of coconut milk... )

#1 Postby andjack » Wed Feb 20, 2008 7:26 pm

Ok, the following is a really tasty beverage made by the javanese people, and it has coconut milk.. ( good for those trying to add some healthy fat to their diet... )
I hope the following ingredients are not hard to find... as you can see it's basically vegan... except for the sugar that you might want to look for a vegan version as well as the red colorant that you might also want to look for a vegan version.. ( but that doesn't really matter,cuz it's only gonna change the color anyways.. no big deal )
---
-perfect for vegan events. or just drinking by yourself.. :P
----------------

Ingredients

* 16 oz. coconut milk.
* 16 oz. Sugar.
* 16 oz. water.
* Maizena, agar agar or holy basil seeds.
* 1 thee spoon salt.
* Cola essence or lemongrass.
* FDC red nr 5. ( vegan version, preferably )


Directions

1. Mix the Sugar and water and boil for 15 minutes. Keep mixing during this time.
2. Add the required syrup to the coconut milk and the cola essence (or lemon grass).
3. Add salt and ice cubes.
4. Make a solution of maizena and add this to 16 oz. water, boil to a very thick porridge and seive directly into a pot with cold water.
5. Introduce these pieces in the dawet.
6. Keep always mixing to avoid the coconut milk from separating.
7. Serve ice cold!

Not that I cook with it much but isn't 16oz of sugar a whole lot?

Well, it is an entire pound of sugar (a simple carbohydrate) for 2 cups of water and 2 cups of coconut milk........

I'm not a big believer in saturated fats being healthy, especially for most of us who don't live in the tropics and eat an indigenous diet. And I know a few people on here who would balk at red dye #5.

But otherwise, thanks for sharing! :wink:

the sugar may vary, of course, it's just sugar, some people like a lot, some people put very little....
about the saturated fats, i did some research on the subject, and the saturated fat from things like coconut are well digested ( coconut is good for a lots of other things llike being anti-viral among other things...), unlike from meat and other things in the same group.

and the colorant, is not necessary, it's optional.
anyways.. too bad nobody liked... i thought everybody was going to try making it... :wink:

lol.. i don't even know how much sugar is needed, because i have a friend who is indonesian and he makes it himself, i just got the recipe from him...

oh well...

It sounds great to me and I love coconut. I just don't keep sugar in the house. I'm sure I'll try it eventually. :)

Thanks for the recipe, Andjack. We're always up for new vegan recipes, even if we completely deconstruct them and examine every ingredient first. :D
