Coconut Milk

Simple Homemade Coconut Milk

1 brown coconut opened and cut (may substitute with 2 cups organic unsweetened shredded coconut)
2 cups hot water

Options:
1 tsp organic vanilla bean powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 or 2 cardamom pods

Place your choice of your coconut, water and any options in a high speed blender (like Vitamix). Start blending slowly and gradually increase the speed for 1 min. Use a nut milk bag to strain the coconut milk from its pulp and squeeze well (your hands and skin will get a nice nourishing). Keeps in the refrigerator for up to 5 days,
