Super easy homemade coconut milk
Recipe type: Paleo Basics
Category: Paleo
Serves: 1L
  • 2 cups desiccated coconut
  • 4 cups boiling water
  1. Soak the coconut in boiling water for an hour or 2 in a bowl (or skip if you're impatient or need immediately!)
  2. Blend at high speed in a blender or thermomix for about 30-45 seconds.
  3. Pour into a nut bag held over a large jug or bowl. Let it cool for a bit as you won't be able to squeeze the bag whilst it's so hot!
  4. Squeeze as much liquid out as you can. Viola! Coconut milk
  5. Use or refrigerate.
You can use the left over coconut - dry it out, process it into flour or just add into your curries or smoothies.
The fat will separate in the fridge so warm gently and shake well before using straight from the fridge.
