DIY coconut milk

Coconut milk the shell and the powder left over

Not only is DIY coconut milk delicous it’s better for you with no added gums or fillers!

The coconuts at the store were so good looking I just had to get one! Although it takes a lot of time to make…when you take a sip of your work it will be worth the time!

Do I need any special tools to crack open the coconut?

You shouldn’t need any strange tools besides a hammer! (I cracked my coconut open on the driveway of cement!)

What tools will I need?

A cheese cloth.

A good hammer.

A fine seve.

A large bowl.

A pitcher (for the coconut milk).

A blender.

And a spoon.
