Made my own drinking coconut milk rather than buying the boxed stuff from the supermarkets which is basically just water, a very small amount of coconut milk with additives, preservatives and flavouring!
All I did was get a can of coconut cream (find one that is as much real coconut as possible) and a 1L carton of coconut water. Divide the cream and water evenly between 2 x 1L bottles and then top off with plain water (you can just use all plain water instead of coconut water). Drop a few drops of pure vanilla extract into each bottle and shake.
I get 2L of coconut milk and it only costs me about $4 (for the can of coconut cream and carton of coconut water). As opposed to $4-6 for one 1L carton of bought coconut milk!
Making it yourself tastes better and is more filling too as you get the full fatty goodness of the coconut cream!
Give it a go and let me know what you think!
