DIY Coconut Milk

I hadn’t thought of making coconut milk from shredded coconut until I read Sarma Melngailis’ book Living Raw Food.

This recipe is a little messy to make, however, I like it since it’s a heck of a lot easier than cracking open a fresh coconut and scooping out the “meat,” etc. And, it helps me avoid canned coconut products.

Instructions

  1. 1Soak coconut in water for 1-2 hours (do not discard water)
  2. 2In a Vita-Mix, combine coconut, water, vanilla and stevia and process on highest speed
  3. 3Strain liquid through a fine mesh paint strainer bag, discarding solids
  4. 4Serve
