Tasty Coconut Milk (On The Cheap)

So cheap, simple to make, and delicious.

For DIY Coconut Milk you’ll need:

  • 1 part unsweetened coconut flakes (I purchase organic in bulk – under $2/lb.)
  • 1 part boiling water
  • blender
  • cheese cloth or fine sieve

Add about 2 cups of coconut to blender, add equal amounts of boiling water, cover and let sit for about 10 minutes. Next, remove lid, drape tea towel over vessel and replace lid loosely -this prevents a big hiccup and mess at the start-up of the blender. Leave blender running for 20 minutes.

Next, place your sieve on top of the bowl and pour the liquid through the sieve (or cheese cloth).  Allow to cool. Once the coconut is cool enough to touch grab a handful at a time and squeeze out any remaining milk. Now you’re done and have super fresh coconut milk that blows the canned stuff away!
