Homemade Coconut Milk

When I was a kid, heck, when I was an adult before transitioning to the vegan lifestyle I drank milk, and especially loved chocolate milk. For the last few weeks, I have been purchasing unsweetened coconut milk to add to my smoothies to make it extra creamy.

I sometimes miss drinking something other then water. I decided to take a big sip of the coconut milk I had in the fridge. I spat it out. It tasted like watered down something, and actually doesn’t even smell like coconut. That got me thinking- perhaps I could just make my own with shredded coconut and water. So I did.

I originally tried to make it in a food processor and that didn’t really workout as planned. I don’t think it is powerful enough. Once I had my Blendtec in hand, I tried it again. It worked like a charm.

My homemade coconut milk smells and tastes like coconut, unlike the store bought variety I have encountered. It is creamy and just lovely.
