Coconut milk and Coconut flour

imageimageimage

It’s really easy and cheap to make coconut milk at home with coconut flakes and has a bonus you will also get coconut flour. Just use 1 part of shredded coconut to 2 parts of water.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 170 gr (3/4 pint) of shredded desiccated coconut
  • 1 + 1/2 pint of water
  • cheese cloth or a nut milk bag

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. soak the coconut in the water for 2 hours, you can do this in the blender jar because you will be blending it in the next step.
  2. blend the mixture in the blender for 3 minutes
  3. pour the mixture into the cheese cloth and strain into a bowl. The liquid you are straining is the coconut milk, reserve the coconut fibre in the cloth it will be used later to make coconut flour.
  4. store the coconut milk in the fridge
  5. take the coconut fibre out of the cheese cloth and spread it over a baking tray.
  6. bake in low heat or leave in the over for 24 hours until it dries.
  7. grind in a coffee grinder or a food processor until you get a flour consistency as fine as possible. Don’t worry if it’s not completely powdery, it should still work in recipes that use coconut flour.
