- Desiccated / shredded coconut - 105g / 1 cup / 3.7 oz
- Water - 1000ml / 4 cups / 35.2 fl oz
- Warm some water. You don't want it boiling, but you will need it more than lukewarm.
- Put the shredded/desiccated coconut in to the blender.
- Add half the water (once warm).
- Once blended, pour the ingredients over a sieve/strainer and collect the liquid underneath.
- Press the wet coconut pulp against the sieve/strainer to force more of the coconut milk out. Get as much as you can out. The coconut won't go dry, but will be damp.
- At this point, evaluate your coconut milk. If you like it as thick as that, you can stop there. If you like it a little less thick, put the damp coconut pulp back in to the blender.
- If continuing, add some more water (to your preference). I like to add 4 cups of water to every 1 cup of desiccated coconut, but you may like more or less.
- Follow steps 2 - 8 until you get the thickness of coconut milk you desire. I find that doing two rounds of the coconut + 2 cups of water works well for me, but you may like it different.
- Once you have blended to your preference, you will be left with damp coconut pulp and coconut milk. You may choose to add sweetener to your coconut milk at this point (blend it in), or you can store the coconut milk in some reusable bottles.
- Do not throw the coconut pulp away! Put it in the oven on a low temperature for a few hours until it dries out. You can then use it in cooking and baking recipes, or sprinkle it into or on top of your other smoothie recipes! (You can check out my other coconut milk-based smoothies here!)
- Be sure to now throw the coconut pulp away! If you put it in the oven on a low temperature for a few hours until it dries out, you can then use it in cooking and baking recipes, or sprinkle it into or on top of your other smoothie recipes! Just be sure not to let it burn! You can do the same thing with almond pulp, if you make your own homemade almond milk.
