HOMEMADE COCONUT MILK

HOMEMADE COCONUT MILK

 

COCONUT MILK

This is be the easiest, most delicious animal milk substitute I've ever made. It's easier that going to a store! And because I don't always feel like swinging my machete around (especially not at 6 am in the morning while making breakfast), I stock up on dehydrated coconut flakes and keep them refrigerated until it's time to bring coconut back to life.  This milk has no added sugar, it's additives free (no gums) and the fat content does tent to separate but with a little blend can quickly get to the right consistency.  Or you can scoop out the fat to make whipped cream or ice cream.  You can adjust the fat content by adding or subtracting coconut flakes.
