The cost of coconut milk and flour is pretty high, but there are plenty of great new recipes on Pinterest that use coconut flour instead of regular flour. I admit I've been really wanting to try some, but I just can't bring myself to spend that kind of money on coconut flour and milk. Homemade coconut milk costs less than $1 per batch based on what we tried. Not only do I get good quality coconut flour, I also get the milk and save money!
You can use the coconut milk for smoothies or in protein shakes.
I added one cup of the unsweatened shredded coconut to four cups of filtered water.
Just throw it all in your blender and let it set for a couple of hours.
After it has softened, blend it on high for a couple of minutes.
Drain the milk into a pitcher and catch the coconut "pulp" in a colander.
Gently press the coconut mixture with a spoon to squeeze all of the liquids out.
Spread your coconut pulp on a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake in a preheated 200 degree oven until dry. Mine took about three hours.
After it has dried out, put the pulp into a food processor and grind it up.
It will have the consistency of cornmeal.
Store in an air tight container until ready to use!
