Coconut milk is used in a lot of Asian cooking. Its sweet and creamy consistency adds a wonderful richness and milky sheen to dishes.


  • 2 brown ripe coconuts
  • 4 cups filtered hot water


  1. Using a sharp knife, pierce the ‘eyes’ of each coconut and drain the liquid into a bowl.
  2. Split the coconuts in half and then remove the white meat from the husk.
  3. Place the coconut liquid and coconut meat into a blender along with the hot water, and blend on high until the mixture becomes relatively smooth.
  4. Strain the coconut mixture into a jar using butter muslin. Cap and store in the refrigerator until ready to use.
