Coconut is a healthy and delicious food that can be made into many different uses. You can consume it as a nondairy beverage, incorporate it into various dishes, and coconut oil can even be used externally for skincare and beauty purposes. Today we will show you some easy methods to make your own coconut milk and oil at home, so you can have fun during the process and save some money as well!

Getting started

Take 1 brown coconut and hold it vertically, use an electric drill to make a hole through the shell

Turn over the coconut and empty the coconut water into a bowl

Use a hammer to hit the middle part of the coconut shell repeatedly until it cracks open

Separate the coconut in half, use a knife to scrape out the white coconut flesh inside

Keep scraping until you take out all the coconut flesh. Some part of the flesh may still have shells attached on it, you can use a peeler to peel off the remaining shell

Place all the coconut flesh into a blender, add in 1/2 cup of coconut water and 1 cup of hot water. Blend the mixture on high speed until all the ingredients becomes well incorporated

Line a bowl with a piece of cheese or muslin cloth, pour the coconut mixture onto it

Wrap the cloth around the mixture and use gentle force to squeeze out the liquid

There you have it, creamy, rich coconut milk made all by yourself from scratch! Doesn’t it look delicious?
