How To Make Coconut Milk From Shredded Coconut

Creamy Coconut milk made from shredded coconut
Gluten free, dairy free and vegan


Coconut milk is such a wonderful alternative to cow's milk.  It has a natural sweetness and is so rich and creamy.  It goes perfect on cereal, coffee, tea and even by itself.  Many of the coconut milk's in stores are filled with preservatives, sugar and unwanted ingredients, so I prefer to make mine at home.

Making coconut milk at home couldn't be any easier and you can choose to sweeten it with whole foods like dates or berries.
