Homemade Coconut Milk
Difficulty 5 minutes Serves
Once you try making your own plant-based milks you will never go back to store-bought. They are vastly more flavorful, are much more nutritious, you'll know exactly whats in each batch, AND - perhaps most importantly - they taste so much better. Give this easy coconut milk recipe by Petra of Oh My Delish a try - you can use it for smoothies, porridge, baking, or just drink it plain. Enjoy!
Ingredients 1 cup fresh coconut meat, or coconut chips 1 L pure water You will also need:
Directions 1. Place the coconut in a bowl and add enough water to cover. Soak the coconut for 6-8 hours or overnight.
2. Rinse well and place in the blender with 1L water. Blend on high speed for about 1 minute.
3. Take a large bowl. Place a piece of cheesecloth or muslin in a sieve and place it over a bowl. Slowly pour the coconut mixture into the muslin. Gently squeeze the bottom of the muslin to release the milk.
4. Carefully pour the milk into a glass container. The milk keeps for about 3 to 4 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
