Materials

  • Saucepan
  • Blender
  • Strainer
  • Bowl
  • Bottle

Ingredients

  • 4 cups of Shredded Coconut
  • 8 cups of Water

Process

  • Fill your saucepan with 4 cups of water and heat
    • You don’t have to boil it. You just need it HOT.
  • While your water is heating, add the shredded coconut to your blender
  • Pour hot water into blender
  • Blend it all up, until it thickens
  • Place the strainer over your bowl and pour your mixture in.
    • You can use a spoon to help press the extra liquid out into the bowl
  • Pour your strained liquid into your bottle and refrigerate!

Things to keep in mind:

  • It’s normal for your milk to separate. Simply give it a good shake before each use.
  • Keep refrigerated to prolong its freshness.
  • This is good for a week.

Why Coconut Milk?

  • It contains electrolytes and healthy fatty acids.
  • It’s a great moisturizer! I’ve added this Coconut Milk to personal care products that I’ve made, and have noticed how well it nourishes!
  • It’s dairy free! If you’re lactose intolerant/sensitive (like I am) then I know that you’re all about those milk-alternatives. Well my friend, here’s an option for you!

What can I do with the leftover coconut pulp?

  • Bake your leftover shredded coconut and reuse!
    • Be sure to spread it thinly on your baking sheet to get a nice crunch.
    • Shredded Coconut is great for cookies, smoothie bowls, etc
  • Add the wet pulp directly into a smoothie!
    • You can store it in your refrigerator if you plan on using it this way later on.
  • Add the wet pulp into your Banana Nicecream to add flavor and texture!
