Day 137 Coconut Milk

Coconut Milk

It is always great to be able to make your own staple items.

6 Cups Dry Coconut, unsweetened
6 Cups Boiling Water

This is a 1:1 ratio so you can make as much or as little as you like.

1.  Place the coconut in a large bowl.  Cover with the boiling water.  Let stand for at least 30 minutes.  Put in a blender and blend for 3 minutes.  If you are doing a large quantity, it may take several batches.

2.  Place the blended coconut in a nut milk bag.  Let the bag hang over a bowl until the milk is cool enough to handle.  Squeeze all of the liquid from the coconut in the bag.

3.  Repeat the process.

4.  Ladle the milk into glass bottles and refrigerate.  The milk will separate.  You will need to shake it vigorously before using.  Bring the bottled milk to room temperature before using will help in remixing.

5.  Save the used coconut for smoothies, oatmeal or soups.
