Brazil Coco-Nut Latte
Makes 4 servings
½ lb (227g) Brazil nuts
4 cups Obrigado Coconut Water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ginger, finely minced or grated
½ teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1- Combine all ingredients in a blender and start on low speed, increasing carefully to max speed. Blend at high for a good 3 minutes, until liquid seems completely smooth.
2- Strain through a fine sieve, pressing well to extract all the liquid and discard the solids. Chill for at least 3 hours or serve over ice (very important to serve this latter icy cold).
Brigadeiro Pumpkin Obrigado
Makes around 20 Brigadeiros
1 can sweetened condensed milk
3 tablespoons Obrigado coconut milk
2 tablespoons (20g) unsalted butter
¾ cup (165g) canned pumpkin puree
¼ teaspoon ground ginger
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch freshly grated nutmeg
1 cup lightly toasted unsweetened grated coconut for enrobing
1. Procedure: Place the condensed milk, Obrigado coconut milk, butter, pumpkin puree, ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat.
2. Reduce the heat to low and cook, whisking constantly until it reaches the consistency of a dense fudgy batter, about 8 to10 minutes. You want the mixture to bubble like lava on occasion, so it’s important to use low heat or the sides of the pan will burn. If you undercook it, the brigadeiro will be too soft; if you overcook it, it will be chewy. You know it is done when you swirl the pan around and the mixture leaves a thick burnt residue on the bottom of the pan.
3. Slide the mixture into a bowl. Don’t scrape the pan—you don’t want to integrate any of the burned bottom. Let the mixture cool at room temperature. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.
4. Scoop the mixture by the teaspoonful (or you can use a mini ice cream scoop) and, using your hands, roll each into a little ball about ¾ -inch in diameter (about the size of a chocolate truffle). Place coconut in a bowl. Roll 4-6 Brigadeiros at a time, making sure it is sticking to the little ball fudge and covering the entire outside surface. Store in a plastic container at room temperature for 1-2 days or up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator.
