Another fantastic milk alternative.
I tend to stick to nut milks because in my opinion, when made correctly, they are the most delicious! I have attempted Hemp milk and I was utterly disappointed when I tried it was not what I had hoped and dreamed. Not to say you won’t like it, it’s always great to give everything a try.
Coconut milk I feel has a lot less of a creamy texture unlike almond milk. Coconut milk is refreshingly smooth and light to drink.
I made a batch using some leftover coconut flesh which I plucked out of the shell, peeled, soaked over night, blitzed up in a blender along with some filtered water and then strained in a nut milk bag.
Yes, it may be a longer process than buying your own BUT, you will not find the same taste freshness any store bought but milk than making your own. That is guaranteed.
Here I have;
- 1 cup of fresh coconut flesh
- 900ml of filtered water
- Pinch of salt for flavour
I never sweeten my milks but you can if you like with a choice of many natural sweetener’s.
Bake up the coconut meal into coconut flour on a low heat for around 15mins and use within 1 month. Store in an air tight container.
