Homemade Coconut Milk // You would not believe how easy it is to make your own coconut milk! The best part about it is there are only four ingredients. All you need is your Blendtec and less than five minutes of your time! |Tried and TastyWe recently discovered there is an ingredient in many of the store bought almond and coconut milks out there that we don’t want in our milk: carrageenan. It’s an unnecessary additive and carcinogen. I first learned of it from the Food Babe (whom I love) in her article Watch Out For This Carcinogen In Your Organic Food. Pretty much anytime I learn about something from the Food Babe, it changes my life forever: i.e. I have not {for at least 3+ years) and refuse to eat at Subway or Chick Fil A, I won’t drink Starbucks coffee, and I won’t touch anything with artificial raspberry flavoring (see her article Do You Eat Beaver Butt). 

After learning how easy it is to make your own, I’ve been wondering why on earth we haven’t been doing this before now. We most often drink almond milk, but also like coconut milk as well. Both are ridiculously easy. With the help of my Blendtec Designer 625 Blender this milk came together in less than 60 seconds. That’s it. can you believe it? I hardly can. So quick, so smooth, SO easy!  Between the almond and the coconut, I’m not sure if I would be able to pick a favorite – they are both fantastic! We keep bins of unsweetened coconut and raw almonds on hand, so if ever we are out of milk, we simply just whip up another batch!
