Coconut-Lemon Coffee

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Mia in Germany

I had some left over coconut milk and finally tried this, and loved it! For the sweetener I used 1/2 ounce erythritol (three sachets) which is only 70 percent as sweet as sugar. So this was about two teaspoons real sugar, I guess. Feel free to use other sweeteners to taste. I used 1 inch real vanilla bean but you can use vanilla extract or vanilla sugar to taste. The vanilla should not overpower the coconut and lemon flavour, though.

I trhought this was okay...for me the coconut milk overpowered the taste of the coffee instead of complementing it, I would have liked the coffee to "stand out" a bit more.
