In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, add 2 cups of sugar and 1 cup of water. Stir continuously until the sugar dissolves completely. This creates a smooth base for our syrup, ensuring there are no gritty sugar particles in the final product.
Reduce the heat to medium and allow the mixture to simmer for about 10 minutes. This process helps in thickening the syrup slightly, giving it a luscious consistency that's perfect for drizzling over your favorite pancakes or even ice cream.
Now, add a can of coconut milk to the mixture. This not only infuses the syrup with a rich coconut flavor but also lends it a slightly different flavor profile that pairs excellently with a variety of dishes.
Once done, transfer the delicious syrup to a mason jar or another airtight container. This homemade coconut syrup lasts for up to a month when refrigerated, providing you with ample time to enjoy it in different ways.
Enhance your syrup with some coconut flakes or a hint of coconut extract for that extra tropical flair. If you're looking to add a twist to the traditional coconut syrup, you might even try a dash of cinnamon syrup to spice things up.
