Stuff to mix kava in?

    Hey there!
    I wanted to get some feedback: lately I have been mixing my BKH 11 year kava (instant) with Almond milk due to the kavalactones being fat soluble, therefore, feeling the effect a lot more (as opposed to drinking it in water - huuuge difference btw).
    The problem is that I often feel sick after consuming a few cups due to the kava taste with the almond milk so I need something with "some" fat in it and not dairy-based. Anyone have any suggestions? What do you mix your kava in?
    Thank you in advance!!

    Coconut water, but there's no fat in it.

    Mix my kava in water. I usually chase with an acidic juice if it is a pungent kava. The Hawaiian stuff needs no chaser

    I virtually always just use water, but when I want to get krunk I use a really low liquid ratio and use 2/3 water to 1/3 coconut milk as my liquid. Wwhat I use is 4 TBS medium grind, 4 TBS coconut milk and 8 TBS water. That's for some serious krunkitude, tho.

    But that probably doesn't work with the aluball, right? I suppose the coconut milk, even when mixed with water, is too thick and clogs up the ball. Have you tried it out?

    I stopped mixing my kava with anything but water because it made me queasy. Now a days I just tell my fat cells to do the work of adding the fat.

    After you're prepared it whether by traditional prep or AluBall, try mixing in just a bit of liquid chocolate sauce like what you would use to make chocolate milk....just not as much.
    I'm actually almost enjoying the taste of kava now!

    In my microgind days I mixed that stuff with pretty much everything under the sun. Coffee creamer, milk, juices, coffee, sugary flavorings, coconut water - all it did was prolong the agony of choking down the gritty mixture. In the end I got to the point of minimizing the amount of water I mixed it with and pounded it down. Did the head shaking and the gagging noise of a dog eating a small rodent and chased it with water. If I wanted to add some fat, I did it after I drank the kava with a bit of cheese or other dairy.
    Since switching to medium grind I quite enjoy the taste of most kavas. Hawaiian and Tongans can be quite creamy and delicious. There are still some strong Fijians and Vanuatu that are a bit more bitter but still nothing like microgrind.
