Coconut Milk – pt. 2

Want that rich, creamy coconut milk without having to take a chance on a coconut? We’ve had trouble with the last batch of coconuts we’ve purchased. Since our time is precious and it’s hard to keep up with fresh items in the house, I found an alternative!!! Coconut flakes! Make sure you do NOT buy de-fattened coconut flakes and go with organic if you can!

1. Soak 2 cups of coconut flakes in 4 cups of boiling hot water for 1-4 hours. I covered mine with a plate.
2. Place in blender – start at low speed and work your way up to the highest setting and blend for 2 minutes. You may want to try this in two portions – most blenders can’t hold that much liquid and blend. You can take a chance, but you may lose some of your mixture out the top (even with the lid on).
3. Strain with a cheese cloth, squeeze out all of the extra liquid, but not too hard, you may break the cheese cloth. You can also use a nutbag.
4. Pour into mason jars (2) and store in fridge. Good for up to 5 days!

ENJOY!
