Coconut Milk

How to make your own coconut milk. 


1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
2 cups hot or boiling water


Place in a high speed blender ( I use my Vitamix )
Blend for about 2-3 minutes
Strain into a nut bag over a glass bowl and squeeze all the milk out until just the dry coconut pulp is left

** do not throw out this pulp as its great added to hot or cold meals. Add it to soups & curries or how about your smoothie or sprinkled on top of a salad. 

My favourite so far has been the combination of pulp from my cashew coconut milk. It is so delicious and naturally sweet from the cashews. 

FYI: Making nut milk is pretty much the same measurements. The only difference is soaking the nuts. Soak time differs from nut to nut though. 

Hope you enjoy!
