If you haven’t already tried making your own coconut milk, here are a few recipes. I recommend getting creative by adding strawberries, dried dates, and even banana to make flavored milks, strain with a cheese cloth. You can make any kind of nut or seed (raw cashew, almond, walnut, sunflower seed, hemp seed, etc) milk by soaking about 1.5 cups of nuts overnight, rinse them before blending! And again, use cheese cloths. Enjoy!
Homemade Almond Milk or Coconut Milk
Pour hot water over coconut/nuts, let stand for 15 minutes, or until cool. Place ingredients in blender, power on high for 30 seconds-1minute and strain in big bowl, using a cheesecloth.
Use left-over fiber for baking (raw protein balls, smoothies, chia pudding, or oatmeal). Optional: add cinnamon or vanilla. Use the coconut milk for oatmeal or to add to herbal teas during detox. Some of the following recipes call for it. Almond milk is best enjoyed when fresh, otherwise it separates when stored in the fridge (don’t worry, it’s still good!) Just throw back in the blender before using.
Extra Easy Coconut Milk
Blend on low, the following ingredients together. Other options are to add a few drops of liquid stevia, a dash of vanilla, and/or cinnamon. Good for 3-4 days.
