500 ml shredded coconut
1 lt pure water
1 tbsp maple syrup (if desired)
1. Place shredded coconut into blender and add water, soak for 1 hour.
2. Blend on the highest speed for about a minute.
3. Place a strainer on the top of a bowl and cover with a cheesecloth. Pour the mixture and crush with a spoon.
(Save solids for adding to smoothies, raw desserts or making the coconut powder by sun-dry.)
4. Use coconut milk immediately or store in the fridge. Good for max 4 days.
The fat in the coconut milk may rise on the top within 1 day, gather with a spoon in order to use as cream or just shake or stir before using.
