Homemade Coconut Milk and Leftover Coconut Pulp

By

I recently got a knock-out deal on some shredded coconut. And it was so cheap that I couldn’t help but to stop buying coconut milk and start making my own, since I make a daily smoothie anyway. If I’m going to have to clean the blender, I might as well make good use of it and save money at the same time.

So every morning I make coconut milk, if it is needed for the day. Then I return the coconut pulp to the blender and make a big batch of smoothie. I pour the smoothie into our popsicle molds and then pour the rest into cups. We drink the cups and eat the popsicles later in the day.  No waste and all of the coconut gets used.

If I’m not making a smoothie that day, I just press it flat into a container and pop the coconut pulp into the freezer.  When I do need to make a smoothie, I take it out and break the frozen sheet of coconut pulp up into pieces and put it in the blender.

You don’t have to have a vitamix to use this recipe. I make my coconut milk in a regular blender with good results.
