We make a few different types of nut milks in our home. We rarely buy animal milk and when we do raw goat milk is our top choice. Most made from scratch nut milks take 12-24 hours to make as the ingredients need to soak. Coconut milk is great when you don’t have that time. It doesn’t need to soak and still tastes great! You can use fresh meat if you don’t mind breaking open and cleaning out a coconut. Or in a pinch (or if you need a longer self life for the ingredients) you can use dried coconut meat. Be aware that some are sweetened. Also, note that the meat straight from the coconut creates a richer milk.
You will need:
*4 cups water
You will also need a blender, cheesecloth/strainer, and a container (I prefer mason jars) to keep your milk in. Sweeteners are optional and to taste. You can also use extracts to change/enhance the flavor.
Let rest 5-10 minutes. I sometimes leave it longer and go clean up toys or wash dishes.
