Ask the TLC-Chef … How to make Coconut Milk

COCONUT MILK can now be introduced on a very limited ‘Treat” basis on the TLC-Program, ie not daily but as a treat once in a while!

HOMEMADE COCONUT MILK RECIPE

Specific Restrictions:
50 ml of Coconut Milk maximum which must replace half a fruit from your daily allowance
DO NOT USE CANNED MILK

NOTE: When using this recipe – reduce proportionally to eliminate wastage – ratio of 2:1 water:coconut flakes.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups water
  • 1.5 – 2 cups unsweetened coconut flakes

Method

  • Heat water until hot (but not boiling).
  • Add shredded coconut and water to a blender.  If all of the water won’t fit, you can add it in two batches.
  • Blend on high for several minutes until thick and creamy.
  • Pour through a colander to filter out the coconut pulp, then squeeze through a cheese cloth
    or nut bag to filter the smaller pieces of coconut.
  • If you separated the water into two batches, put the strained coconut back into the blender with the second batch of water.
  • Drink immediately or store in the fridge. Fresh coconut milk should be used within 3-4 days of making it for the best flavor and texture.
