  • 1 cup (90g) shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 2 cups hot water


  1. Place the coconut and water in a high powered blender.
  2. Turn on low then up to high speed.
  3. Blend for 3 minutes.
  4. If you are using in a soup or a curry, I recommend using as is. If you plan on using it as a beverage, then filter through a fine mesh sieve, cheesecloth, or nut milk bag. You can keep the sediment to add to smoothies or dry it out at a low oven temp and use as coconut flour.
  5. Store in the fridge.
