Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup unfiltered apple juice
  • 1 Tbs. agar-agar flakes
  • 1 tsp. kudzu
  • 1 cup lite or regular coconut milk
  • 2 Tbs. maple syrup

Preparation

In small saucepan, mix apple juice and agar-agar flakes. Let stand for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, in medium bowl, dissolve kudzu in 2 tablespoons water. Whisk in coconut milk and maple syrup, then whisk into apple juice mixture. Bring mixture to slow simmer over low heat, whisking constantly, about 4 minutes. Cook, whisking often, until agar-agar is completely dissolved, about 10 minutes (do not boil).

Pour into shallow dish and cool to room temperature. Press Coconut Cream through fine-meshed sieve before using.
