Making Coconut Milk

I’m sure that this is nothing new since there are tons of blogs out there that probably have already shown you how to make coconut milk but this is what I did this morning and figured I’d share anyway.

Coconut milk really is very easy to make with only two simple ingredients, water and shredded coconut. I used four cups of water and two cups of coconut flakes.

I blended them up in my Nutri- Bullet- I love this thing BTW. I use it a lot. I will have to share one of my favorite smoothie recipes soon.

I use a cotton flour sack towel to strain mine in since I don’t have a nut bag or cheese cloth. These towels work perfect for me. No fancy tools needed here.

Squeeze as much of the water out as you can.100_0319

I save the pulp,100_0320

and put it in a freezer bag for later use. I will probably dehydrate this to make into flour. No since letting it go to waste.100_0321Then I just pour the milk into a mason jar and into the fridge it will go. It lasts about a week if I’m not drinking my smoothies everyday then it lasts me 4 days.100_0323

See how super simple that was. Took me all of maybe 15 minutes to make.
