Happy Valentine’s Day lovers, cat ladies, besties, and everyone in between! If you’re in Canada right now you’re probably so cold that you refuse to leave your bed… whether you have a Valentine this year or not! But don’t worry, we’re here to save your date night/girl’s night/dog walk plans. Give yourself and your heart a jumpstart with our Coconut Coffee Love Potion!
As you know, we’re very much on team tea here at The Pastel Palace, but post-vacation blues and the desolate cold have driven us to the dark side this past week. All dressed up with steamed vanilla coconut milk, a shot of vanilla liqueur, coconut whipped cream and a few puffs of coconut cotton candy, we guarantee this sugary concoction work faster than Cupid’s arrow ever could!
Note: product most effective when served in one of Ban.do’s adorable mugs!

6 T Coarse ground coffee
1 cup Vanilla coconut milk
2 oz Galliano vanilla liqueur
Organic Cotton Candy (we used the Coconut from Fancy Pufs)
Conversation hearts for garnish
Makes 2 12oz mugs
In a french press combine the coarse ground coffee with 2 cups boiling water. Steep! Fill the mugs up halfway, leaving room for milk.
Add cotton candy to sweeten, we used approximately a handful. Next add 1 oz of Galliano vanilla liqueur.
Steam vanilla coconut milk and top off your coffee. If you don’t have a steamer just heat it in a saucepan and foam with a handheld milk frother.
Finish with whipped cream (we used a coconut whip), a generous puff of cotton candy and conversation hearts of course!
