Super Simple Coconut Milk
Article Published on May 26, 2016
Sure you can buy coconut milk at the store, but if you make this coconut milk at home once, you will never go store-bought again!
Vegan milk, or mylk if you prefer to spell it this way, is a must in my home – for smoothies, soups, lattes, sauces, and sweets. Since making my own, buying the cartons or tetra packages is something I would rather not do because the home-made versions are so much better. When my time crunch finds me in a jam, and I need a super quick way to keep milk on hand, this recipe is it! It’s so easy, and I really love the creamy thickness. The best part is no straining is required – ya gotta love that.
If you have been intimidated to make your own vegan milk, this recipe is a must try. It’s virtually no-fail and all you need are the ingredients, your blender (and it doesn’t even have to be high speed yet I sure do love mine) and a glass jar. From there, it’s measure, blend, pour, and enjoy. After this, I am sure you’ll be “hooked on home-made.”
This super simple no straining coconut milk makes approximately 3 cups.
Super Simple Coconut Milk
- 1 can organic coconut milk or cream (my fave brand is Earth’s Choice)
- 1–2 Medjool dates, pitted, optional
- Approximately 3 cups filtered water, more if you prefer a lighter milk
- ½ – 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 tablespoons raw cacao
- 3 servings Vitamin Mineral Rush
- Pink sea salt if desired – just a tiny pinch
- *optional 1 tablespoon or two of raw cashew or macadamia nut butter adds wonderful creaminess.
In a powerful blender add water, coconut milk, and the dates, and blend for 1–2 minutes. Turn blender off, adding more water and dates, if desired, blend 30 seconds longer.
Pour the milk into a glass container with a cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days.
