Author Mommypotamus

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons coconut cream also known as coconut butter, or more if you want a creamier milk* (find it here)

Instructions

Method One:

  • Pour coconut cream and water into a blender and mix until smooth. An immersion blender works, too!
  • Optional step: If you're using the coconut milk for baking, the above steps should be sufficient. However, if you're drinking it and want a smoother texture, allow the coconut milk to thicken and then strain it through cheesecloth before serving.

Method Two:

  • Stir coconut cream into hot water until dissolved.
  • Optional step: If you're using the coconut milk for baking, the above steps should be sufficient. However, if you're drinking it and want a smoother texture, allow the coconut milk to thicken and then strain it through cheesecloth before serving.

Notes

* Keep in mind that this recipe thickens naturally about 20-30 minutes after it is mixed up, so if you think it's too thin you may want to wait until then before adding more coconut cream.
