How to Make Your Own Homemade Coconut Milk From Scratch

​For ​the longest time, I have been afraid to make my own homemade coconut milk. 

It intimidated me.

But now that I​'ve done it a few times, I will ​be making it a must have staple in my kitchen.

​Homemade coconut is a fantastic alternative to store bought canned and boxed coconut milk, which is typically filled with additives to keep it from naturally separating.​

In fact, I just ordered a 5 pound bag of unsweetened shredded coconut to last me for a while.

​Being on the SCD, specific carbohydrate diet, and having to mak​e just about everything from scratch, homemade coconut milk really is a better alternative.​

​How to make your own homemade coconut milk from scratch

Here is a list of everything that you will need in order to make your homemade coconut milk:

  • check
    ​Vitamix​ (other blenders work as well)
  • check
    ​Cheese cloth
  • check
    ​7/8 Cup of unsweetened shredded coconut flakes
  • check
    ​2 cups of water

​Put 2 cups of water into your Vitamix blender.

Add 7/8 cup of unsweetened shredded coconut flakes ​to the water. ​

Turn your Vitamix blender on high ​and blend for 2 minutes. 

Then ​pour the milk through a cheese cloth and squeeze all the milk out into a jar.

Then put the pulp back into the Vitamix, add another cup of water and blend for another 2 minutes.

Repeat straining through the cheesecloth and ta-daa- homemade coconut milk!

Yum​, it'​s almost worth the effort just for the fragrance of warm, soft coconut milk that floats around the room.

​Oh ​and by the way, the leftover coconut powder can be used in recipes as coconut flour, there is no waste in this recipe!
