How to make fresh coconut milk

Mature coconut Take a mature coconut

 nb - the coconut should be past its jelly stage and have contain firm white flesh








Coconut Milk - Chopped coconut  Chop the coconut in to small pieces. Start chopping at the eyes as this is usually the softest part of the coconut.

 The water which comes out of the coconut can be discarded, water from a mature coconut is usually oily and not as nice as water from fresh jelly coconuts.






Coconut milk - Separating the flesh from the shell For each piece of coconut, prise the flesh away from the shell using a sharp knife.











Grated coconut Grate the coconut finely.











Coconut milk - squeezing the milk from the flesh Place the grated coconut in a bowl and pour on a glass of water.
 Squeeze the coconut to extract the milk from the flesh










Coconut milk - draining the milk from the flesh Hold a strainer over a clean bowl and place the coconut and water mixture in to the strainer.
 Squeeze the coconut milk out in to a bowl.


 Repeat the previous two steps until all of the milk has been extracted from the flesh.
 You can know when there is no more milk to be had when the grated flesh no longer has any taste.









Coconut milk - straining the milk Strain the milk several times to make sure all of the sediment is removed.











Coconut milk The milk is now ready to be used.
