Homemade Coconut Milk (vegan, paleo) / Kokosovo mlijeko (vegansko, paleo)

Here’s another quick and easy treat for all of those who are fans of plant based milks. This coconut milk is even quicker to make compared to the cashew milk recipe I’ve posted, as it doesn’t require presoaking. And since desiccated coconut is pretty cheap, the milk is also super affordable and, needless to say, far superior in taste to store bought options. This milk should keep in your fridge for 4-5 days.

3 cups water (–)

METHOD:

Add coconut and water to a high speed blender and pulse for 2-3 minutes, until the milk is smooth and creamy. Strain the milk through a clean kitchen towel or a nut milk bag to separate from the pulp. Squeeze out as much liquid as you can from the pulp, then transfer the milk to a clean bottle. Store the coconut milk in your fridge and shake well before every use to re-emulsify.

I have a great curry recipe coming up with this milk so stay tuned. Also, don’t throw away the pulp, as it works awesome in smoothies, bread, cakes or pancakes. I’ve made a really tasty frozen vegan bounty squares with it and will share that recipe with you guys as well.

Evo jedan brzi i jako jednostavni recept za sve vas koji ste ljubitelji veganskih mlijeka. Ovo kokosovo mlijeko je još jednostavnije i brže za pripremiti od mlijeka od indijskih oraščića za koje sam ranije objavila recept jer kokos ne morate namakati. A pošto je i samo kokosovo brašno prilično jeftino, ovo mlijeko je još isplativije, uz to što je i daleko finije od onih kupovnih verzija. Ovakvo domaće kokosovo mlijeko će u hladnjaku držati kojih 4-5 dana.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 3 šalice / 0.83 kn po šalici / 2,50 kn za sve)

1 šalica kokosovog brašna (2,50 kn)

3 šalice vode (–)

PRIPREMA:

Kokos i vodu ubacite u jaki blender, pa pulsirajte 2-3 minute dok mlijeko ne bude glatko i kremasto. Mlijeko procijedite kroz čistu kuhinjsku krpu ili kroz specijalnu vrećicu za mlijeka od orašastih plodova kako bi ste ga razdvojili od pulpe. Iz pulpe rukama istisnite što više tekućine, te preselite mlijeko u čistu bocu. Čuvajte obavezno u hladnjaku i dobro protresite prije svake upotrebe kako bi se ponovno napravila emulzija.

Imam super recept za curry sa ovim mlijekom, pa bacite oko na blog ako vas to interesira. Također, pulpu nikako ne bacajte već ju upotrijebite za smoothyje, kruh, kolače ili palačinke. Ja sam pulpu iskoristila za prefine smrznute veganske bounty kocke, a ubrzo sa vama planiram i podijeliti taj recept.
