coconut syrup

how do you like to start your day? do you like it sweet or savory? or both?
there are a lot of lowcarb pancake and waffles recipe in the Internet now some my think its even better with a regular pancake made with white flour and sugar but its so hard to find a very versatile sauce that can multi-task, yes i want my sauce to do a lot of things from mousse, syrup, sauce and a hot cocoa because i want every dime of my money to be well spent.
        so i made a quest, make a perfect sauce for me, something that will satisfy and remind me of something i used to enjoy but doesn't have  the bad things that can kick me out of ketosis.
    my inspiration came from a Filipino coconut sauce its a very simple but oh so yummy goodness, to make it you just need coconut milk and tons of brown sugar! yes tons of brown sugar to have an almost caramel color and make it really thick so can even use it to spread on your bread. so i took the basic and went with  it replacing the brown sugar with just a tiny cocoa powder to mimic the color of the sauce.

coconut sauce

1 can of organic coconut milk
1 tbsp of cocoa powder
3 tbsp of erythritol or any sweetener of choice

just mix everything together in a medium sauce pan then bring it to boil
once boiling lower your heat and simmer it for 30 minutes stirring frequently
cool it down, put in a sealed container and store in a fridge it will thicken once in the fridge like a mousse like texture but you can always thin it down with almond milk.
