Yummy Coconut Milk

Coconut Milk:

Aloha… For over 2 years my husband and I have been making this Coconut Milk to supplement my breastmilk.

We started giving him the Coconut Milk originally out of desperation, then continued to give it to him for stomach health, brain health and overall good body fat.

Coconut milk has become a staple in our refrigerator and a delicacy for us. I am finally able to truly enjoy milk again, the great thing is… I am enjoying milk that truly is good for me, not because the FDA said so, but because my body continually tells me so…

I hope that this recipe inspires you to give Coconut Milk a chance, especially if you have dairy intolerance and food sensitivities.

I know you truly are going to find that Coconut Milk is so Yummy Yummy Baby!

Sending you Love & Light! Dr. Dee

Instructions for Silky & Yummy Coconut Milk from Scratch:

First pick out a minimum of 2 Young Thai Coconuts that do not have pink on the bottom.  A tiny tiny amount of light pink should be ok, but the more pink, the greater the likelihood of it being rotten or compromised.

The amount of Coconuts will vary because each Coconut is unique, some have a lot of meat and others have a lot of water.

Use a the bottom edge of a Meat Cleaver to strike the Coconut.  There is a sweet spot that is in the outer-center perimeter of the Coconut- with practice you will find it every time!  Follow the perimeter in a Circular Pattern until the circle is completely open.  Gently remove the top of the Coconut.  Please mind your fingers when striking the Coconut.

STEP 1

STEP 1

Next use a large bowl to pour the Coconut Water into… then transfer it to a glass or cup and save it.

Use the front or the back of a spoon to gently but firmly extract the meat from the inside wall of the Coconut.  If you press too hard you will scrape off too much of the inner wall and make more work for yourself…

STEP 2

STEP 2

This is what the Extracted Coconut Meat will look like. Do not worry if some of the shell is left on the meat, use your fingers to gently rub/pick it off.  You can also use the Coconut Water to bathe the Coconut Meat.

STEP 3

STEP 3

You will also gently remove the Coconut Meat from the top of the Coconut…  Depending on how much water the Coconut yielded and depending on how thick or thin you want your milk, you may need to use additional store bought Coconut water.

Next you will combine the Coconut Water and Meat.  Use a strainer to make sure that you remove any particles from the Coconut Water, especially if you used it to bathe the Coconut meat.  Repeat for the second Coconut.  (Generally you want enough Coconut Water to fill to the Max line of the Nutribullet or a minimum of 1 1/2 to 2 cups of Coconut Water.

STEP 5

STEP 5

After using the Nutribullet, Vitamix and Ninja, we found the Nutribullet to make the silkiest & smoothest milk. If you are making it for an adult it probably doesn’t matter, but if you are using it for baby formula, I would strongly suggest a Nutribullet. *I have no affiliation with Nutribullet.

STEP 6

Blend it for about 45 seconds. By using soft Young Thai Coconut meat (instead of hard/mature meat) and by using the Nutribullet, there isn’t a need to strain the milk through a cheese cloth… It is instantly silky & creamy.  You are ready to add anything you like to it or drink it fresh! Mmmm!

Every other night for 2 1/2 years we made this Coconut Milk for our baby’s Coconut Milk Formula. We also drink it ourselves using various recipes.

Here are a couple of things you can add to the milk before you blend it and make it even more Yummy Yummy Baby:

  • Organic Vanilla Extract (1-2 drops)
  • Organic Almond Extract (1-2 drops)
  • Organic Toffee Extract (1-2 drops)
  • Organic Banana, Strawberries, Mango… really the list goes on and on!

Add anything that you would normally add to a smoothie, including ice and frozen produce!

Yummy Coconut Milk!

It is so Yummy Yummy Baby!

    • Hello and thank you for the reply. I was aware of this rumor before so I made sure to verify that we were eating and feeding our baby healthy coconuts. This rumor appears to have been started by a competing coconut company for mature coconuts. There are many articles that have proven this formaldehyde rumor to be false… Please read this article, and it should help bring some peace to you! 🙂 Thanks for sharing your concern, I look forward to learning any helpful information you have! 🙂 http://www.coconutresearchcenter.org/hwnl_8-4.htm
