Mmmm. Coconut Milk!


I'm back in business.
I know I'm on the mend when I have the energy to practice yoga, make a huge batch of pho, and bake cookies.  Ah, normalcy.

The pho was rockin'!  Lemongrass, onion, garlic, mushrooms and jalapenos simmered with some Edward & Sons "Not-Beef" bouillon.  Thai Kitchen wide rice noodles, cilantro, mung bean sprouts, mint, green onions, and lime juice.  Yum!
After eating a ridiculous amount of soup, I needed a sweet treat.  The past week I've been nibbling on peanut butter with chocolate chips sprinkled on top.  Tonight I felt up to some baking, so I whipped up some of the gluten free chocolate chip cookies from Eat, Drink, and Be Vegan.  I enjoyed them with a little glass of So Delicious Coconut Milk.


I sampled some of this milk about a month ago and fell in love.  Alas, I had to wait until the Co-op could actually order the product before I could take some home.  But now it's here and it's on sale!

Now, don't get scared that this is like drinking coconut millk from a can.  This is a whole different story.  This milk isn't thick and doesn't have something like 56 grams of fat per cup.  It has 5 grams.  And it doesn't taste strongly coconut-y either.  It's very mild, but still rich and delicious.  
Dipping cookies in it is heavenly!

The kitten likes it, too.

I just got the unsweetened kind. I think I would like the sweetened better. It made really hot chocolate, but I thought it was a little watery tasting in cereal...

I have been eating PB with chocolate chips on top too! Mmmmmm... Simple and satisfying! Glad you are feeling better; the evil cold is making it's way around my office, but I've already been taken by it once this year...

My first time on your blog--love the title! I have to admit I'm a food snob too. But this is a safe haven for food snobs, right? Anyway, the pho looks awesome. The combination of yoga, pho, and cookies looks pretty rockin' to me.
