Make your own coconut milk
You can make coconut milk yourself with very little effort. All you need is grated coconut, a blender and a nut milk bag or a very fine sieve:
Serving: 1 liter
- approx. 70 g raw coconut flakes (desiccated coconut)
- 1 liter cold water
Puree all ingredients in a blender. Then add the coconut milk using a Nut milk bag or strain in a fine sieve.
The coconut milk will keep in the fridge for 5 to 6 days. If the solid components separate from the liquid ones after a while, this is not a problem. Simply shake the milk vigorously before using it again.Source: Medical Medium Facebook post from April 27, 2017
As you can see, it’s not that difficult to create a healthier alternative compared to animal milk. However, be aware that coconut milk, like animal milk, contains a non-negligible amount of fat and this should be taken into account when consuming it.
