Homemade Coconut Milk

You will need:

Step 1:

This is the most difficult step. Open the coconuts using a machete, concrete floor/wall, or some other hard object, and grate the white meat. In order to do this, you might need a coconut grater, link above. 

Step 2:

Weigh the grated meat.

Step 3:

Put into the food processor and add an equal amount of water. For example: 400 grams of meat means adding 400 grams of water. 

Step 4:

Blend the coconut meat and water for 1-2 minutes.

Step 5:

Filter the coconut milk through a Nut Milk Bag. Extremely important: squeeze the bag until the coconut is dry. 

You have your coconut milk! We have not had much luck with storing this in the refrigerator as is. Soooooo...

Final Step:

Pour the coconut milk into ice cube trays. Freeze. Store the coconut cubes in a container. This way, the coconut milk will not go bad and you will be able to use as wanted.

When ready to use:

You can blend the coconut cubes with some Cold Brew (see our blog on how to make a Bohío Style).

You can heat a few cubes over the stove on super low heat.

You can leave a few cubes out until liquified.

SO MANY OPTIONS!

 *This recipe will yield enough for around 3 trays of cubes (~36 cubes).
