Every week I meal prep! I chop up raw veggies for snacks, make my sourdough bread, whip up a batch of my ranch dressing and make the below coconut milk recipe.
Then, as we jump into our filled and committed weeks, we’re still ready…even when this mama is tired.
This coconut milk is literally the easiest thing to make, and it’s perfect for those that cannot handle dairy, or even raw milk. We especially love it with my grain-free granola recipe or this coconut crunch cereal.
To show you just how easy it is, here’s a video I recently did for my social media pages, but you can also find the full recipe and directions below.
Oh, and I also mention Thrive Market in the video…here’s the link to learn more about them, but if you haven’t created an account, I would highly recommend it. I buy everything from pantry items to cleaning products and paper goods from them.
Hope you enjoy!
Coconut Milk Recipe
Yields: Approximately 4 cups
- 4 cups filtered water
- 2 cups organic coconut, unsweetened and shredded
- Heat water to a simmer, not boiling. It should be hot, but not scalding.
- Put coconut in blender and add water.
- Blend on medium for about 5 minutes. For the last minute, turn to the highest speed.
- Pour liquid through a mesh colander to get most of the coconut out. Let it strain for approximately 10 minutes. You can also squeeze through a towel or several layers of cheesecloth to strain further.
- Drink immediately or store in the fridge. It should last for about a week and because there are no preservatives or fillers, the “cream” of the coconut milk may separate on the top if stored in the fridge. Just shake or stir before using.

I am going to try this! Thank you! I wonder if the Almond Cow Milk Maker would work? Been Thinking about buying one. No more straining nuts or seeds with my cheese cloth. Instant milk!
I’m not sure, but let us know how it goes if you do purchase one. 🙂
I have an Almond Cow milk maker and it works great to make Coconut milk
