Coconut Milk is so simple and delish – coconut chunks, water, dates, blend and strain.
The homemade coconut milk is great as a smoothie basis and wonderful with nutmeg and a cinnamon stick for a late evening treat.
2 Litre filtered or purified water
1/2 cup of fresh coconut chunks or 1 cup of desciated coconut
2 fresh dates
pinch of sea salt
vanilla bean or essence (optional)
Add coconut and water to high powered blender, blending for 2 mins.
Add remaining ingredients and blend for another 30sec
Using a nut bag or cheese cloth strain the milk and remove pulp.
This can be dried and used as flour alternative in other recipes.
Coconut Milk should remain fresh for 2-3days.
