Instructions

Instructions for the Blender Method

Heat water until warm (not boiling).

Add shredded coconut in high speed blender and add the warm water.

Blend on high speed for a few minutes until thick and creamy.

For a creamier milk, use less water.

Get a nut milk bag ready (a fine cheese cloth will also work) and pour the milk through the nut milk bag to remove the fiber.  

Pour in a glass jar. Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator (with a lid) for up to 5 days.

Instructions for the Vegan Milker Method

Heat water until warm (not boiling).

Add shredded coconut and warm water to the ”vegan milker”.

Stick an immersion blender in the ”vegan milker” and blend for a few minutes until thick and creamy.

For a creamier milk, use less water.

Lift the filter attachment in order to drain the coconut milk. With the mortar press the coconut milk through the filter.

Pour the coconut milk in a glass jar. Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator (with a lid) for up to 5 days.

Since this recipes doesn’t contain any preservatives or fillers, the fat/cream of the coconut milk will separate and float to the top. You can remove this or stir before serving.

 


Notes

Coconut milk can be enjoyed both cold or warm. Stir before serving.

Freezer for up to 1 month and keep fresh in the fridge covered for up to 5 days.

Some optional flavor options:

  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1-2 tsp cocao powder

Add the flavor options after the coconut milk is done (ie after blending and filtering).
