🌱 = Get It From The Source
1 cup of organic desiccated coconut (make sure you use organic coconut as conventional coconut contains preservatives and sulphites) 🌱
3 cups of filtered water
- Blend the coconut and water at high speed on your blender for around one minute.
- Pour the contents of the blender jug into a nut milk bag and strain well, press out all the liquid into a bowl and keep the fine coconut in the bag.
- When the liquid is fully strained, transfer the milk to a glass jar or bottle to store in your fridge. You can empty the contents of the nut milk bag into another container and store the coconut meal for dessert recipes too.
- Feel free to flavour the milk by adding 1-2 fresh dates, a touch of salt or a dash of cinnamon. It is versatile like nut milk.
