I make this with coconut cream as it has the best taste and consistency, plus I like the fat that it adds. It is high in Medium-Chain Triglycerides (MCT) which have many health benefits including weight and appetite control. For those of you who can’t eat coconut this also works with almond milk (and likely any other kind of milk) but the taste and consistency is not the same.
