Coconut milk is one of the best substitutes for bovine milk around. You can drink it straight, use it as creamer in your coffee or tea, mix it with your chai, or even just cook with it. There is really nothing that you can’t use coconut milk for. And with this recipe you don’t have to buy your coconut milk out of a box, you can make it yourself so that its always fresh from the coconut.
Coconut milk is essentially made from two separate coconut products: the coconut water and the coconut cream. It is made by extracting these products directly from the coconut. Thanks to being a coconut extract it contains all the vitamins and minerals found in coconuts like, magnesium, iron, copper, manganese, vitamin C, selenium, and folate. These help your body to improve digestion, reduce inflammation, boost blood circulation, and stimulate weight loss. Coconut milk also contains a decent amount of electrolytes which helps with water retention.
