How to make it
This recipe takes less than 5 minutes to make!
Step 1. In a clean microwave-safe container, add water.
Step 2. Add coconut sugar. Stir to combine.
Step 3. Heat in the microwave for about 2 minutes, or until the mixture boils.
Step 4. Stir for about 10 seconds: coconut sugar should be totally dissolved into water.
- Foam. There will be some foam after boiling that will most likely disappear after syrup is cooled. If it doesn’t, strain syrup through a fine mesh sieve. You can also remove it with a spoon.
- Spoiled coconut sugar. If using coconut sugar that has not been stored correctly, it can give you a syrup with some off-flavors and weird smell. Make sure to always keep opened coconut sugar away from sunlight and well closed, avoiding the ingredient to have any contact with moisture.

It keeps for about 3 months. If any mold is spotted, or syrup starts to look cloudy, it is best to discard and make a new one, as syrup might not be safe for consumption.
