How to make fresh coconut milk--from a sweet young coconut!
I've seen people make coconut milk at home by mixing dried coconut flakes with hot water, or even by chopping up a mature coconut and mixing with hot water... blended in a blender, then strained. But in my raw vegan days, I learned a much better way!!
Sweet young coconuts are MUCH, MUCH easier to open than mature coconuts--no hammer involved at all. ;) And their meat is soft and delicious! And they're filled with sweet, fresh coconut water, like the kind you can buy in soda cans at the store only sooooo much better. Sometimes we open them and drink the water and snack on the meat. Yummm.
But, sometimes we make our own coconut milk, as my husband demonstrates in the tutorial on his blog this week.
P.S. I'm pretty proud of my photos. I'm learning!! Love my 50mm lens, which made these pics possible. ;)
Hope you enjoy the tutorial!!
