Coconut Milk


Trying to find a substitute milk with no sulfites, no carrageenan, no xantham gum, etc can be difficult. And that brought me to the following:

Vita-Mix Coconut Milk recipe

Or

Coconut Milk recipe that's similar but involves a little cooking

Making this in the Vita-Mix will heat it up - it only takes 2 minutes on high to get warm and this recipe calls for 3 minutes.

I used unsweetened coconut flakes from Let's Do... Organic since they contain no sulfites. Also used a fine mesh strainer and sifted the mixture with a spoon to get the liquid through. The leftover pulp has no flavor to speak of. Whether or not that gets used is a recipe for another day.

If you prefer your milk sweet, you can add pitted dates or sugar of your choice.

This will have a slightly thicker texture than the store variety. The aroma and flavor are excellent.
