How To: Make Coconut Milk
(Adapted From Elana’s Pantry)

  • 2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 6 drops stevia

Soak coconut in water for 1-2 hours (do not discard water).

In a blender, combine coconut, water, vanilla, and process on highest speed.

Strain liquid through a fine mesh strainer (or a strainer bag, or cheesecloth would work), discarding solids.  Serve or refrigerate.

Ways to use it:
Besides using coconut milk in recipes, it can also be used as a skin softener due to natural moisturizers and oils  found in coconut milk. 

Coconut milk is a great alternative to milk in desserts. You can substitute the oil and water with the same amount of coconut milk. It makes for a very moist cake.
