Super Easy Coconut Milk

My Super Easy Almond Milk recipe can be used to make any nut milk. But this is my absolute favourite. Perfect for smoothies, lattes, porridge, granola… and all it takes is a minute of forward planning. Read more about why coconut is so good for you here.


  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 5 cups water


  • 1 tablespoon rice malt syrup
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon


  1. Soak coconut overnight in one cup of water.
  2. Blend the entire soaked mix with four cups of water.
  3. Add the rice malt syrup and cinnamon and blend again.
  4. Pour through a strainer into a large bowl.
  5. Pour milk into a tightly sealed bottle and store in the fridge for up to a week.
  6. Save your pulp – it’s fantastic to add to smoothies, granola, fresh fruit and yoghurt, or my Low Carb Raspberry & Coconut Muffins. So simple, cost-effective, and resourceful!

To make your own coconut flour using your pulp, simply follow my Super Easy Almond Flour recipe – it can be used for any nut flour!

    This came out really watery. Follow direction to a tee. Any suggestions?

    Hello Carmel, you could reduce the amount of water slightly or blend for a longer period until it starts to thicken.
