Quick Substitutions: Coconut Milk

Do you need coconut milk, but don't have any in your cupboard? However, do you happen to have some flaked coconut on hand? If so, you can make your own coconut milk!

Coconut Milk


1 cup flake coconut
1 cup milk


Simmer 1 cup coconut in 1 cup milk until mixture begins to foam. Strain. Use in beverages, or in baking and in cooking.

Refrigerate any leftovers.

Source: I found this recipe on the back of a package of sweetened flaked coconut (Kroger brand) and thought it was definitely a handy thing to know!

Notes: I haven't actually tried this, but I wanted to keep it in a safe place so that I could try it when the need arises!
