3 Minute Homemade Coconut Milk (Dairy-Free, Vegan)

Print

This morning, I woke up with a completely free day. What a rarity! I was able to design my perfect day and it was going to commence with a pineapple, coconut and cilantro smoothie. This is simply frozen pineapple blended with coconut milk, cilantro and a vanilla raw vegan protein powder.

Previously, I would have used So Delicious Coconut Milk as the base but they have reformulated it, adding extra stevia, and making it unpalatable. Instead, I made my own coconut milk.

This was my first attempt and it was even more incredible than I thought. What’s more, it is so simple – coconut chunks, water, dates, blend and strain.

The homemade coconut milk is great as a smoothie basis and wonderful with nutmeg and a cinnamon stick for a late evening treat. Enjoy!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Coconut milk is rich in vitamins C and E that are well known for their antioxidant properties. Free oxygen radicals are formed by our body tissues during the process of metabolism. They are harmful to cellular components and contribute towards aging and tumor growth. Antioxidants contained in coconut milk help to neutralize these harmful substances.
