DIY Milks #1 Coconut

homemade coconut milk

It became DIY month on the ship for a little while before left. Everything from seitan from scratch (as in washing it down from plain flour the old fashioned way, usually ending up looking like I have taken part in a flour and water bomb fight), to freezing homemade vegetable stock cubes made from my vegetable peelings, essential when all the supermarkets offer nothing but MSG filled rubbish! I even dabbled in making my own sundried tomatoes on the top of the fly bridge.

This little recipe in particular came in extremely handy. Most places you can get hold of non dairy milks easily, though sometimes they are very expensive, or are the kinds that are full of sugar. This was my favourite as I love the taste of coconuts, and decissated coconut was cheap and easy to get hold of. Even if you can find plenty of non dairy milks, sometimes its just nice to make things yourself. Β 

DIY Coconut Milk


  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • 4 cups warm water

Place coconut and water inside a blender and blend for about 2 minutes. Strain through a sieve to get the lumps out and store in the fridge. Stir before use.


Note: for an even smoother milk strain through a nut milk bag or piece of cheesecloth if available.
