How to Make Coconut Milk
Prep time
Total time
Equipment: Hammer, Screwdriver, An old cloth cheesecloth or a flour bag, Blender, Sieve (large is best)
Serves: 4 quarts
  • 4 coconuts, old, brown ones
  • Filtered water
How To Make
  1. Wash the coconuts on the outside.
  2. Punch two holes through the eyes of the coconut using the screw driver and the hammer.
  3. Turn the coconut upside down and let the coconut water sip out (you can drink it, it’s a great electrolyte).
  4. Wrap the coconut in the old cloth and crack it with a hammer.
  5. Separate the coconut meat from the shell of the coconut with a knife.
  6. Cut the meat to chunks and put it into the blender.
  7. Fill up the blender with warm/hot water till it covers the coconut meat.
  8. Blend for one minute.
  9. Pour the mixture into a sieve covered with a cheesecloth.
  10. Pick up the four corners of the cheese cloth and squeeze out the liquid.
  11. This is your milk!
You can use the remaining coconut flakes to make coconut flour, or just add them to smoothies and baked goodies. Coconut milk will last only for 2-3 days in the fridge, or you can freeze it in Mason jars.
