How to Milk a Coconut
For some reason unsweetened coconut is not easy to come by around here so I found an online organics store to order from.
Check this out…..
3 kilos of unsweetened organic coconut. Sweet!
I’m very excited about this new recipe. I’ve played with it for weeks and finally have the version that I love. First I tried a can of coconut with water added but it left a funny taste in my mouth. Then I tried sweetened coconut with water and it was like drinking sugar water …so it was yummy but it hurt my teeth.
Finally I have a big jug of light, refreshing coconut
water milk in the fridge that I use for drinking, baking and oatmeal topping. If you are a serious coconut fan like I am then you need to make this.
2 cups unsweetened coconut
7 or 8 cups of cold water.
Let this sit in a jug over night.
Place water and coconut mixture in a food processor or blender and pulverize until smooth. You can add a tsp of vanilla or even a couple of dates for sweetness but I just like to add 2 packets of stevia.
I can’t decide whether I like almond milk or this coconut milk better. For now I’ve been taking turns making 8 cups of one or the other each week. Since I’m the only one who really drinks it in the house, it’s enough so far.
Now my challenge is use up the pulp.
I love a challenge I do.
