Coconut milk

I use this as a replacement forĀ  canned coconut milk, it’s very easy to make and it only has 2 ingredients: coconut and water, no cans, no BPA, no metal residue.


1 cup of unsweetened dried shredded coconut
1 1/2 cups of very hot water


  • Blend the coconut and 1 cup of hot water for about 2-3 minutes at a high-speed.
  • Strain using a nut milk bag of several layers of cheese cloth over a colander.
  • Return pulp to blender and add the remaining 1/2 cup of water.
  • Blend at medium speed for 2 more minutes and strain again
