The Easiest Coconut Milk Recipe

I love all things coconut. I remember after the fall of the Soviet Union, when we were introduced to foreign things, the first thing that left a life long impression on me was a Bounty chocolate bar. It was filled with shredded coconut (this was very unique and divine for a child who had never tried anything like that in her life). It was as if I were transferred to the heavenly tropics with every bite I took. SO, that’s where my love relationship with coconut started. Then, there was Rafaello candies which still make me smile every time I think of them. And now, thank God, coconut has become popular and even recommended by nutritionists!  I love coconut milk; I use it everywhere possible in place of regular milk. It can get pricey, so I was thrilled to find this great recipe for making coconut milk. It tastes great, full of important nutrients and is very budget friendly!

The Easiest Coconut Milk Recipe

 

Ingredients

  • 2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut – here
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 6 drops stevia (or organic raw honey to taste) – here

Directions

  • Soak  shredded coconut in water for 1-2 hours (do not discard water).
  • In a blender, combine coconut, water, vanilla, and process on highest speed.
  • Strain liquid through a fine mesh strainer (or a strainer bag, or cheesecloth would work), discarding solids.  Serve or refrigerate.

 

Coconut milk is a great alternative to cow’s milk as it is easier to digest because the body uses 3 less enzymes to digest it. Coconut milk boosts the immune system  as it provides vitamin C to the body.  Additionally, coconut milk contains phosphorus  – an essential nutrient that your body needs for strengthening bones.

 

The Coconut Oil Miracle

Ways to use coconut milk

Besides using coconut milk in recipes, it can also be used as a skin softener due to natural moisturizers and oils  found in coconut milk.

Coconut milk is a great alternative to milk in desserts. You can substitute the oil and water with the same amount of coconut milk. It makes for a very moist cake.
