Homemade Coconut Milk (Using Dried Coconut)

A while ago I wrote a post on how to make coconut milk from a whole fresh coconut. I said that at some point I would get around to writing a post on how to make coconut milk from dried coconut. It’s a lot faster and easier to make coconut milk from dried coconut. Here’s what you need to make it.

  • 1 cup dried coconut (I used unsweetened flakes that I bought in bulk)
  • 4 cups water

Put the dried coconut and the water in a blender. Blend for a couple minutes on high. Strain and put in a container in the fridge. I used an old pasta sauce jar.

See? Easy! It’s even easier to make than almond milk, and that’s pretty easy too. It tastes good on its own, but you want a dairy free version of chocolate milk, try adding some chocolate syrup to it. Enjoy!
