Home Made Coconut Milk

The milk is made from coconut flour and water. Due to its rich and creamy consistency, it can be used as a really good milk substitute. It is a popular choice with vegans and makes a great base for smoothies, milkshakes, soups, or as a dairy alternative in cooking. It can also be used as a milk alternative for coffee.

Classed as a fruit and frequently confused for being a nut, the coconut is actually a one–seeded drupe.

Coconuts are highly nutritious and rich in fibre, vitamins C, E, B1, B3, B5 and B6 and minerals, including iron, selenium, sodium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorous. Due to its rich array of vitamins and minerals, benefits of coconut milk for health are many – see below.
