I know, I am so coconut obsessed these days.
I can’t help it though, coconut goes so awesomely with so many things, and I just love the flavor.
Plus, it’s so tropical and fun, and you know I am especially into anything tropical and fun right now.
I know you may think that making coconut milk from scratch is hard, but it’s really not too bad.
Once you get the hang of cracking the coconuts things move along pretty quickly, and unlike a lot of nut milks there is no need for overnight soaking with coconut milk.
All you do is drain the water from the coconuts. Crack em open and pick out the the meat.
Then everything gets added to a food processor or blender with some water and… blend away.
Then squeeze out the milk.
And wala…you’re done!
The most time-consuming part is probably cracking the coconuts, but like I said, once you get the hang of it, it is pretty easy.
FYI, after cracking like twenty coconuts in the matter of one week I totally have the technique down pat.
Head on over to Food 52 for the step-by-step instructions. Oh, and happy second day of Summer!
