Frog Eggs in Coconut Water (makes 2 glasses)
I made a drink called Frog Eggs in Sugar Cane from the dried basil seeds that I bought recently, and wrote about it in an earlier posting. These seeds brought back some good memories of my childhood. One of my aunts cut open a young coconut for me. It was very juicy so I took half the liquid and added these seeds for old times sake. Feel free to adjust the ingredients, especially the condensed milk, for sweetness.
1 Tbsp dried basil seeds (known as hot e in Vietnamese)
16 oz coconut water
Meat from 1 young coconut
2 Tbsp condensed milk (more or less according to your preference and health)
1) In a container large enough to hold the liquid and meat, add the seeds and coconut water. Wait about 10-15 minutes for the seeds to expand.
2) Add the meat, condensed milk and ice. Shake well and serve.
