This sounds really easy! Someone please tell me how/where to buy cheesecloth and I will make it myself! Dh got me Cheesecloth!!! Thank you everyone that let me know! Now I just gotta get this done!


  1. In a medium-size kettle, heat the water, but do not bring it to a boil.
  2. Place the coconut in a blender and add 1 cup of the hot water.
  3. Blend for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Place a colander in a bowl and line the colander with 4 thicknesses of cheesecloth.
  5. Pour the blended coconut mixture into the cheesecloth and twist to extract the milk, letting the milk go into the bowl.
  6. Return the coconut pulp to the blender and add the remaining 1/2 cup of hot water. Blend for 1-2 minutes, strain and press through the cheesecloth into the bowl.

You can purchase a cheesecloth from your local grocer, its usually where all the gadgets are sold. You can also buy a cheesecloth from Bed,Bath & Beyond and Linens and Things.

This is nice and creamy I could almost drink it. It was better than another do it yourself coconut milk in which the water wasn't heated that I have tried. It was just a bit tedious and messy with the cheese cloth. I may use this recipe again.
