How To Make Coconut Milk
Updated: Oct 1, 2022
Something sturdy to poke a hole (something like a hammer)
Measuring cup or bowl
Knife or spoon
Mason jar or container
Find the softest spot in the coco, use your something sturdy to poke a hole.
Pour the coco water into a bowl or cup. Straining recommended.
Use your hammer like tool to crack the coco open.
Rinse coco pieces.
Use your knife or spoon to get in that space btwn the coco pulp and the shell. (This can be kinda challenging, but don't give up. The easiest way is to do it all around the coco and then it'll magically pop off on your last pop.)
You might need to rinse the coco again.
Put your coco pieces in the blender. (You can peel off the brown skin if you want, but I don't have that kinda time, lol.)
Add water. We used between 4 and 6 cups of water for one coco.
Place your mesh bag in a measuring cup or large bowl.
Here is where you can add your flavors to the blender. You might want to add things like cinnamon, vanilla bean, nutmeg, date sugar, etc....natural stuff, ya know.
Blend your coco pulp on high. Less than a minute should be fine, but make sure you do it well.
Pour the coco mix through your mesh bag, into the bowl and squeeze it out, (you might need some extra muscle like me, lol) and voila! You've got some deliciously healthy and fatty for the brain coconut milk!
Once you've squeezed out all the liquid you'll be left with something like a coco flour. Save this. I haven't tried it yet but it looks like you can use it as a coco flour in other recipes.
Pour the milk into a cup or mason jar for storage and use it in everything: smoothies, oatmeal, cereal, banana milk, whatever you'd use milk for.
We made some ice cold banana milk with ours. Enjoy this milk fam and rest up knowing you're giving yourself and your family what they need to succeed!
