How to make your own coconut milk

Coconut milk is a staple in our home.  I always have a couple of cans on hand for an emergency, but often I have my own made in the fridge.  It's incredibly simple and very cheap to make if you are able to buy coconut at a reasonable price.  I've been lucky enough to find coconut at Costco and I snapped it up for $8.

You'll need:

2 cups unsweetened, shredded coconut
4 cups water
Cheesecloth or a nut milk bag; I use this Amazing Nut Milk bag and it's pretty perfect.

Put water and coconut into a blender.

Blend on high for 2 minutes.

While it's blending, get your cheesecloth or nut milk bag ready.

After 2 minutes pour the coconut milk over the cheesecloth or nut milk bag, catching all of the coconut pulp.

Refrigerate and use within 1 week.

You'll have a lot of coconut pulp left over.  You can dry it out and use it as coconut flour if you wish.  Or just eat it, which I really love to do!
