Homemade Coconut Milk Recipe from
Dried Coconut Video
We are often asked at Tropical Traditions why we do
not sell any packaged coconut milks. The answer is that we have never
found a packaged coconut milk that meets our high standards. It is a
processed product, and freshly made coconut milk will separate and spoil
quite easily. The water is heavier than the natural coconut oil, so the
water sinks to the bottom and the oil tends to float on top after
leaving it sit for a while. Commercially packaged coconut milks must add
stabilizers to keep the product from separating, and often these
stabilizers are in such a small quantities that they are not listed as
ingredients on the labels. It could be soy lecithin, or something like
guar gum which can cause problems for people who are gluten intolerant.
The product then needs to be packaged in air-tight containers to
preserve it, and this is often done in metal cans that have aluminum
inside, and potentially Bisphenol A (BPA). Since canned coconut milks
are over 90% water, you have to be concerned about the source of water
that was used in packaging as well. The best coconut milk is one you
make fresh yourself!
Since most people reading this probably do not live in tropical places
where you have access to fresh coconuts, the best way to make fresh
coconut milk is from a high quality organic dried coconut that is not
treated with sulfites and is not sweetened. If you live in a
non-tropical climate and see fresh coconuts in your local grocery store,
its a good bet that they have already started to mold as fresh coconuts
have a very short shelf life. They start molding within a couple of
days. Some coconuts that are imported to the U.S. are apparently
irradiated to prevent them from spoiling.
The recipe in this video is a simple recipe anyone living in a
non-tropical climate can make with a high speed blender and a top
quality organic dried coconut. It takes about 10 minutes (or less) and
we demonstrate just how easy it is to make your own fresh coconut milk
in the video. If you do not use the coconut milk right after you make
it, keep it in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.
One of the biggest challenges about going gluten free is the breads. And if you love making your own hamburgers, finding a good gluten free
bun to go with can be next to impossible at times, but not today.
For one thing, it's pretty. And tasty. They're delightfully creamy little squares of black and white chocolaty candy topped with toasty golden coconut. It's all about contrast. Black and white, dark and light, vanilla and chocolate, chewy and crunchy. How can you resist that?
Have you ever made
your own coconut milk only to be left with a handful of leftover coconut
pulp and nothing to do with it? It's too valuable to throw away, but what in
the world are you supposed to do with it?
