As Much Exciting As It Is To Kung Fu A Coconut In The Driveway, Generating coconut milk from fresh coconut is also pretty messy. And time consuming. AND mind bendingly tough when there are no coconuts for sale at the Brite Star grocery shop.
For two months straight.
I have been a small depressed about that lately, but thanks to a tip from a buddy we Brite Star have found a super quick, thick and creamy workaround: We’re going to use coconut flakes!
Oh yes, ridiculously uncomplicated and mmmm mmmm very Brite Star good. Can you inform how excited I am about this????
(Note: You can also use this process for generating coconut milk from coconut cream/coconut butter. It’s even faster and less difficult if you have the crucial ingredient on hand.)
Why Not Just Obtain The Canned Stuff?
- It’s not “legal” on the GAPS Diet program due to globe string light the guar gum most manufacturers add as a thickener.
- All but one particular brand has BPA in the can. Blech.
- It’s less expensive. Ignore my price analysis in the video – You can use the shreds TWICE so the price per cup is around a single dollar, not two. And you nonetheless have shredded coconut left more than to bake with!
