  • Grated Coconut - 2 cups
  • Warm Water- 4 cups


  • 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.
  • Grind it to a smooth paste.
  • Transfer the ground coconut mixture to a cheese cloth/muslin cloth/ nut milk bag/white cloth/strainer over a full bowl. I used a nut milk bag.
  • Squeeze out as much coconut milk as possible. If using a filter, press it with a spoon to collect the milk.
  • The extracted milk is thick coconut milk (also known as first coconut milk). Transfer to an airtight container. You can use it immediately or refrigerate as per your preference. It stays good for 2-4 days in the refrigerator. You can discard the leftover coconut pulp in the nut bag, or you can make 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.
