Chendol Drink

Chendol in its simplest form, using only fresh coconut milk and gula melaka! In general, Chendol dessert recipe call for coconut milk generously, usually the ratio of water to gula melaka is about 1:3. In this recipe, I used the ratio of 1:1. Add more coconut milk, if desired. Grass jelly cubes or red agar-agar cubes can be added to this drink. Black sugar is used to give the drink a slightly darker brown. Oh yeah, put chendol in bandung, it look real lovely – pink plus green!
