If you’re allergic and/or just avoiding dairy, then my Homemade Non-Dairy Coconut Milk Recipe will blow your mind. It has all the creaminess of real milk without that pesky lactose that bothers many of us. Use it as the liquid base in smoothies, in recipes such as my Jamaican Slow Cooker Chicken Coconut Curry Stew, in oatmeal or alone as a healthy treat sweetened with a dash of pure vanilla extract, cinnamon, grade B maple syrup and nutmeg. This might be the easiest, healthy recipe I will ever post. There are 3 ingredients, 2 if you don’t count the water!
Non-Dairy Homemade Coconut Milk Recipe
Use shredded unsweetened coconut for a healthy dairy-free milk alternative.
- 4 Cups Water Steaming hot but not boiling
- 2 Cups Shredded Coconut Unsweetened
- Pinch of sea salt
Place coconut, water and pinch of salt in a Vitamix or blender. Blend on high for 1 minute until the mixture is thick and creamy resembling milk.
If you are using the coconut milk to drink alone, for a latte or chocolate milk then pour the mixture through a mesh strainer to remove small bits of coconut. If you are using the mixture in a soup or smoothie recipe, you can skip this straining step.
Drink/use immediately or store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days in a tight container like a mason jar. If you store in the refrigerator, seperation is normal. Just gently shake before using.
Enjoy this preservative free non-dairy milk!
