Homemade Coconut milk - how to make coconut milk at home for babies and kids
Recipe type: Beverage
Cuisine: World
  • Grated Coconut - 2 cups
  • Warm Water- 4 cups
  1. Cut and open the coconut. Transfer the coconut water into a separate bowl. Now start grating the coconut using a grater. Measure and collect 2 cups of grated coconut. Transfer the grated coconut to a blender/mixer. Add in 4 cups of warm water.
  2. Grind it to a smooth paste.
  3. Transfer the ground coconut mixture to a cheese cloth/muslin cloth/ nut milk bag/white cloth/strainer over a wide bowl. I used nut milk bag.
  4. Squeeze out as much coconut milk as possible. If using a strainer, press it with a spoon to collect the milk.
  5. The extracted milk is a thick coconut milk (also known as first coconut milk). Transfer to a airtight container. You can use it immediately or refrigerate as per your preference. It stays good for 2-4 days in refrigerator. You can discard the leftover coconut pulp in the nut bag or you can make a thin coconut milk (second coconut milk) from it by adding 1 cup of warm water, blend and then strain to get the thin coconut milk.
