Less processed and more nutritious, coconut sugar beats refined sugar any day.

Finally, hot water and fat-free milk make up the remaining two ingredients on our list! Feel free to use any milk substitute of your choice if you’d prefer a milk-free recipe. Almond milk, coconut milk, or soy milk make great options!
