Coconut Milk

TheHealthNut's picture
Coconut milk is not the liquid inside a coconut,although this liquid does make a satisfying drink. Rather, coconut milk is made by squeezing the grated flesh of a coconut with some hot water resulting in a rich white liquid that looks very much like cow's milk. Fresh coconut milk, if not shaken, separates into two layers, with the thick(upper)layer being the coconut cream and the thinner(bottom)layer being the actual milk. The top layer can be skimmed off with a spoon and used for recipes requiring coconut cream (usually desserts) with the bottom layer being reserved for recipes specifying coconut milk.
Ingredients
  Shredded organic coconut 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Boiling hot water 2 Cup (32 tbs)
