Recipe: Coconut Milk

Nutrition Data

Coconut milk is not the liquid inside the coconut. It is the liquid that is extracted from the flesh of the coconut. It can be made at home from fresh, dry or creamed coconut. In this recipe, we will use half a fresh coconut.

  • Grate the flesh of half a fresh coconut into a bowl.
  • Cover it with 10 ounces of boiling water and let it cool.
  • Extract as much liquid as possible by using a sieve (or by squeezing it).
  • Repeat the process as desired. Please note that each time the liquid being extracted will bet thinner.

Coconut milk will separate if allowed to stand. If it does, simply stir it. Use it quickly because it does not keep well.

Note: the same process can be followed when using desiccated coconut.

Coconut milk will separate if allowed to stand. If it does, simply stir it. Use it quickly because it does not keep well.
