When I read Ramya’s post about how to make coconut milk from fresh coconuts ( here), I took note of the little nugget in it: If you have an upset stomach, combine coconut milk and cardamom powder with a little sweetener as a beverage to sooth your stomach. It’s hard to go wrong with coconut milk or cardamom and so I tucked the idea for another day.
Lo and behold, the occasion presented itself about a week later when I felt a bit queasy and I gave it a shot. This is a great drink!
My mom and I actually had a fellow-queasy moment and so we give this two thumbs up. The boys are always up for a warm sweetened beverage. They say: “We’d like it a little more sweet.” Of course they would….
There is no “right” recipe here. Dabble with proportions so that this works for you.
- 2 cups coconut milk
- 1 teaspoon cardamom powder
- 1 tablespoon honey
- Heat the coconut milk gently on the stove, whisking it regularly to keep it from burning.
- Add the cardamom and honey, whisking thoroughly.
- Adjust for taste.
