How to make coconut milk?


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.)

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.
