Easy Version Tip: you can use desiccated coconut instead. 1 cup to 4 cups of water. This version does not harden like the pure coconut recipe provided, also not as much natural coconut favour! 😋
Make a hole on the top of coconut, drain coconut water and set aside.
Break coconut shell and remove the hard jelly. Tip: the coconut shell is pretty hard so try to bash it initially on a hard surface then remove shell.
Place hard jelly in a high speed blender and grind until grainy. Alternatively you can grate the pieces for the same result.
Add coconut water and water to equal 4 cups of liquid to blender. Blend for 1 1/2-2 mins on a high speed to combine.
Strain milk. A muslin cloth or nut milk bag can also be used.
Once strained you can add flavourings such as vanilla extract or sweeteners such as agave nectar. I did not use either for my recipe as I enjoy the pure flavour of the coconut. 😋👍
Done! Keep in airtight glass bottle and consume within 48 hours. Note: this is the most natural form of coconut milk therefore once in fridge it will 'sleep' so the bottle needs to be shaken. ENJOY!
