Ecstatic Rose Petal Drink
4 cups fresh rose petals or 1/2 cup dried rose petals
1 quart coconut milk beverage
2 cups TruWhip whipped topping
2 tbsp honey or other sweetener
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp cinnamon powder
If using dried rose petals, cover them with boiling water and let sit ten minutes. Add the water and reconstituted rose petals to a blender, along with the other ingredients.
If using fresh rose petals simply rinse them under water then add them to the blender along with the other ingredients. Blend on high for two minutes, or until the rose petals are crushed and all is blended together well. If you wish, serve this delicious rose petal drink topped with cinnamon.
