This coconut milk is a spectacular recipe. It’s delicious, thicker than most homemade coconut milk, and super easy to make. It’s one of my favorite vegetable-milk!
In addition, it is much healthier than the ones you can find in the supermarket because it is made with natural ingredients. It also contains no additives, preservatives or added sugar.
- 2 tazas de coco rallado sin endulzar (190 g)
- 4 tazas de agua caliente (1 l)
- Add the grated coconut and hot water in a blender and blend until well blended, 1 to 2 minutes.
- Let the milk sit for a bit so it doesn’t burn as much, then strain using a non-dairy milk bag, a napkin, cheesecloth, or even a fine mesh strainer. Squeeze well to get as much milk as possible.
- Serve hot or cold with granola bars, vegan-chocolate-chip-cookies, vegan donuts or even avocado toast< /a>. You can also use it to prepare recipes like golden milk or vegan brownies. It gives them a spectacular flavor!
- You can use the leftover pulp to make coconut flour, energy balls or to give creaminess to your shakes like this mango smoothie.
- Store the coconut milk in an airtight container on the fridge for about 4-7 days. It is normal for the fat to separate from the water, simply shake the bottle or container before using or serving the milk.
- If you want a thicker milk, use 3 cups (750 ml) of water and the same amount of grated coconut.
- If you prefer it lighter, use 1 cup of grated coconut (95 ml) and the same amount of water.
- It’s best to use hot water, but if you’re in a hurry you can use room temperature water, although the coconut milk will be less dense and less flavorful.
- If you want to sweeten milk, you can add your preferred sweetener to taste after straining the milk. If you are using dates, whisk the coconut milk with the dates. For any other sweetener, you don’t have to churn, just stir or shake the milk.
- Traditional coconut milk is made from fresh coconuts, but I like it prepare it this way because the process is faster and cleaner.
- The nutritional information is not exact since part of the pulp is discarded.
