Home Made Coconut Milk

If you are looking for a dairy-free, raw vegan, creamy milk replacement this coconut milk recipe is for you! It is so creamy and rich that it really feels like you are drinking milk.  This is a great alternative to nut milks especially for those who may have nut allergies.  Today it was so hot out and I was craving something cold and creamy…like milk.  I just happened to have a young Thai coconut on hand so I whipped this up real quick and all I can say is… what satisfaction! It was exactly what I was looking for.

Just a side point, did you know that cow’s milk is filled with antibiotics, pus cells, pesticides, herbicides, blood, growth hormones and even viruses.  Milk, organic or not, is an inflammatory, mucus forming food which is difficult for our bodies to digest.  Click here for reasons that you may want to consider eliminating dairy from you diet.

Home Made Coconut Milk


Serves: 3-5  glasses


1 young Thai coconut, meat and coconut water of (the meat should be a little over a cup)

2-4 glasses of purified water

I’ll let you in on my little secret,  if you buy the young Thai coconuts from WholeFoods they will usually cut the tops off for you, some even sell them with the tops already cut off. It’s really helpful to buy them that way, not to mention I’m all about keeping my ten fingers! lol. If not you can use a large knife, a cleaver knife is the best, and cut a whole at the base of the tip large enough to scoop out the meat.

Young Thai Coconut

The meat is much more soft and jelly like that it  just peels off easily.

Young Thai Coconut

Blend the coconut meat and all the water  together in a high-speed blender for at least a minute to two minutes.  I only added 2 glasses of purified water because I like mine creamy, but if you prefer it more watered down just add more water as desired.

Enjoy this delicious, healthy, raw, vegan, dairy-free, alternative to milk!

      I know I was thinking of you as I mentioned that! lol I think Z will love it too, the coconut just makes it so nice and creamy, and why not start young at getting kids taste-buds used to natural whole foods? They should be eating only the healthiest foods as their bodies are growing and developing. Drink an extra one for me! 🙂
