Coconut Milk

Coconut milk is wonderful with granola, in coffee and when used in baking and cooking.

  • 3 cups water
  • 2 TB coconut butter (or manna); I love CAP brand
  • 1/4 cup dried coconut
  • (optional for sweetened coconut milk, 1/2 tsp vanilla and 2 TB raw honey)
  • large pinch of sea salt
  1. Blend water, coconut butter and dried coconut in your Vitamix (or high power blender of your choice) on high until well combined.
  2. Strain the liquid through a fine mesh strainer or nut milk bag into a bowl.
  3. Rinse out the blender well.
  4. Pour the strained coconut milk back into the blender with the sea salt (and optional vanilla and honey, if using). Blend on high for 20 seconds.
  5. Store coconut milk in the fridge for up to 5 days.

*please use organic ingredients, if possible.
