Caribbean Coconut Milk


  • 4 cups grated coconut
  • 2 cups of boiling water or hot milk
Here’s how to make you own homemade coconut milk. You will find that it is superior to anything that you can buy in a can.
  • In a large bowl cover the grated coconut with the boiling water or milk and let steep for 15 or 20 minutes. (milk will give you a richer finished product)
  • Drain the coconut through a strainer, reserving the liquid.
  • The coconut milk should be placed in a wire mesh sieve or in cheese cloth to squeeze out the remaining liquid.
  • Store in a container and refrigerate. The coconut cream will rise to the top.
