  • 13.5 oz coconut milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 1-2 inch piece fresh ginger peeled and roughly chopped (depending how spicy you like it)
  • 4 Medjool dates pitted
  • 1 star anise
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1-2 pinches cardamom
  • 1 pinch cloves
  • extra whole star anise for garnish


  • Add all ingredients to a pot on medium heat. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 5-10 minutes.
  • Use a spoon to remove the whole star anise. Pour the remaining ingredients into a high-powered blender and blend for one minute, or until smooth.
  • Serve in mugs and garnish with extra whole star anise.


  • If you're looking for new mugs, I love my white mugs from Crate and Barrel.
