How to Make Coconut Milk
Learn the few, easy steps to make healthy coconut milk at home. This is so easy and very frugal.
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 2 minutes
Total Time 7 minutes
Servings 20 tablespoons
- 2 cups unsweetened coconut
- 4 cups water
- 2 tsp agave syrup can substitute honey
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Add all ingredients to a sturdy blender and blend well for 1-2 minutes. Make sure to keep watching it as you will notice it change colors and all of the milk become fully combined.
Place a nut milk bag in a large bowl and pour the coconut milk into it to strain away the milk. Keep squeezing until there is just coconut pulp left.
Keep the coconut pulp that is left over for smoothies, granola bars, overnight oats or energy balls/bars.
I used 1 tsp of coconut pulp in each smoothie to make very strong tropical smoothie with mangos and strawberries.
To use in overnight oats, add 1 tsp to overnight oats when stirring together.
