  • 2 C Grated Coconut - Packed, See Notes
  • 3 - 4 C Water


  1. Heat the water till it is slightly warm to touch.
  2. Place the grated coconut in a blender jar and add 1/2 C water to it. Let it rest for a few minutes. Pulse a few times, and rest for a minute. Transfer the contents to a strainer set atop a bowl. Let the milk drain to the bowl. Press firmly with a spoon to speed up the process.
  3. Return the contents of the strainer back to the blender. Add 1 C water and let it rest for a minute. Pulse the blender for a few times and repeat as in the above step to extract milk.
  4. Repeat this process one or two more times until the extraction resembles water more than milk.
