Burmese Cool & Refreshing Coconut Beverage - Moh Let Saung

The Ingredients
Moh Let Saung

Moh Let Saung is a light, cool and refreshing beverage comprising coconut milk sweetened with Maple Syrup (in place of liquefied jaggery/gur), tapioca pearls, bits of coconut jello (Kyauk Kyaw) and coconut strings. It’s the perfect beverage for a hot and humid day.

I was so excited to see Silk Pure Coconut Milk among the milk alternatives in the dairy aisle of the grocery store and Moh Let Saung jumped to the forefront of my mind.  All kinds of delightful tid-bits can be added to this beverage, such as rehydrated basil seeds, white tapioca pearls, bean thread vermicelli and bits of jello.
