Coconut Milk Steamer {recipe}

Spring is quickly approaching and recipes for warm, comforting foods will soon be replaced with those for fresh, light foods. Here in Michigan we’re still trapped in our ‘warm one day, cold the next’ cycle and I still enjoy a nice drink that helps warm a person through to the bones.

This last winter, one of my favorite drinks was that made with coconut milk. Rich and already slightly sweet, it seems indulgent before you add anything else.

Coconut Milk Steamer {recipe}
Recipe type: Beverages
  • 12 ounces coconut milk
  • 2 tsp maple syrup
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1-2 pastured egg yolks*
Method of Preparation
  1. Warm milk on stove until about 125 degrees (until steaming). If you buy canned whole coconut milk, diluted with water in a 1:1 ratio.
  2. In order to add in the egg yolks, beat them lightly in a bowl first. While stirring the yolks, add in ¼ cup of the steamer slowly into the yolks. Once incorporated and warmed through, pour the contents of the bowl slowly into the pan while stirring.
  3. Stir in maple syrup and vanilla and pour into your favorite mug.
  4. You can also turn this into hot cocoa by adding in 2 tsp of cocoa powder.
*I recommend only using eggs that you know exactly where they came from – not store-bought eggs.

  1. Oh wow…this sounds so good I’d seriously think about installing a walk-in freezer in my house just so it would be “in season” all year long!

  2. We have a hot carob drink that we make here for the same reason — when it’s cold and we’d like a healthy warm-up treat.

    I regularly give my littlest one coconut milk w/ stevia in it so I will have to add vanilla to it next time and warm it up. Great idea! Thanks, Donielle!

  3. Oooh, I love this protein-rich hot drink! Eggs from my friends’ chickens would make this amazing with or without cocoa powder. I bet mine would end up yellowish though. Their chickens’ egg yolks are the brightest yellow-orange I’ve ever seen. Thanks so much for this one, Donielle!


  4. I’ve loved getting all your posts in my inbox. I can’t tell you how helpful this blog has been to me.
    I noticed the book you were reading… and thought I would share my blogpost on my experience reading that beautiful book.
    Hope you have a wonderful day today!!!

  5. Okay, so I was just telling my husband YESTERDAY that I was craving a steamer (I’m allergic to dairy, so I was lamenting not being able to drink steamers anymore..). I’m so excited to try this!! Thanks so much!

  6. Yum! This will be fantastic for this fall/winter for me & the kiddos. We’re now on GAPS so I’ll have to switch the maple syrup to honey, but it sounds so good :-)
