Combine everything except the coconut oil into a saucepan and bring to a simmer.
Let the mixture bubble gently for about 5 minutes, then shut off the heat.
After about 5 minutes of cooling, strain the mixture through a few layers of cheesecloth or a very fine strainer if you prefer a smoother texture.
Stir in the coconut oil.
Taste and add maple syrup, honey or stevia if desired!
