Two Easy Methods to Make Your Own Coconut Milk

I like to use coconut milk in my smoothies, but I prefer where possible, not to buy it pre-made. When I started looking for ideas on the best way to make my own, I found these two how to make coconut milk videos very helpful.

How to Make Coconut Milk – The Quick Way

Coconut milk is made from the meat of the mature coconut. I find that the easiest way to make it at home is to use desiccated coconut. I generally use 1/2 cup of coconut for every 1 cup of water.

Add 1/2 cup of desiccated coconut and 1 cup of purified water into a blender. Blend for 2 minutes and then either drink or use it like it is or strain through a muslin or nut milk bag.

To see how it is done, watch the video here…

On The Stove

In this method, the water and coconut is warmed on the stove and then mixed with a hand mixer for five minutes. Thereafter it is strained through a muslin or nut bag.

My Preferance

I prefer the first method and like the 2 to 1 ratio of coconut to water. If like Klaire, in the second video, you like it less intense and more watery, then try a ratio of 4 to 1.

Experiment!
