No Added Sugar Coconut Stuff

I won't call this syrup...syrup would indicate a certain consistency, or expected viscosity.  Nope, this is an easy-peasy, watered down coconutty flavored liquid  (still not saying syrup) that you can add to drinks and all your other culinary delights. You can even just drink it straight. This sweet and coconutty stuff will contain about 6 grams of carbs for the while batch.

1.5 cups cool, filtered water (fancy, I know! I just got it out of my fridge).
.5 cups light coconut milk
.25 tsp pure stevia crystals
.25 tsp vanilla
.25 tsp citric acid or lemon juice
Pinch of xanthan gum (can leave out if you don't have).

Add everything to the blender for 20-30 seconds. You're done! :o) Store in fridge, 3-4 days (you can freeze it in ice cube trays for fast use also). I will be playing around with this from time to time, just like I do with all my recipes. So maybe it will reach a syrup, rather than milk status, at some point in the future.
