How to make coconut milk at home

Creamy homemade coconut milk, made with 2 ingredients in 10 minutes!

Let me show you how:

Preparation time (10 minutes)


- 2 cups (160 g) shredded or block coconut.

- 3 to 4 cups (720 or 960 ml) water (Use less water for thicker, creamier coconut milk!) p>

- A pinch of salt.

- Optional: 1 tablespoon (15 ml) coconut sugar to sweeten or sugar to taste.

- Optional: 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract.


Step 1: Place the ingredients in the blender jar (2 cups coconut, 3 cups of 720 ml water, salt and sugar to taste) cover blender and blend for about 2 minutes or until mixture is well combined.

Step 2. Scoop out a small sample to taste test. Add more, salt or vanilla as needed. Add 1 cup (240 ml) of the remaining water if it is too thick.

Step 3. Transfer the coconut milk to a pitcher or bottle and refrigerate. It will keep in the fridge for up to 5 days.

Shake before use.

Coconut milk can be used in hot and cold drinks such as: Coffee, chocolate, milkshakes, chicken curry rice and many more.
