make your own coconut milk

recipe  22nd July 2016 by

This is my go-to liquid for making my smoothies with and I add it to porridge or other breakfast bowls. It’s so quick, cheaper than almond milk, and if you love the flavour of coconuts, it’ll convert your smoothies or breakfast bowls into coconut heaven.

coconut milk


  • 100 g raw coconut flakes
  • 250 ml boiling water
  • 250 ml cold water
  • 14 tsp sea salt


Add the water and coconut into your blender and blend on high speed for a few minutes until fully blended.

Store in the fridge. The cream will separate from the liquid, so shake or heat gently before using.
