Check out these recipes, as seen on the show!
Coconut Cream Juice for Dry Skin
2 cups unsweetened, dried coconut
3 cups hot water
Flavorings and sweeteners, if desired
1. Set up your workspace by placing a colander in a large bowl. Cover the colander with a piece of cheesecloth or a thin kitchen towel (like the flour sack kind).
2. Blend the coconut and hot water for 2-3 minutes or until throughly processed. Pour the mixture into the kitchen towel, twist up, and squeeze as much milk as you can from the towel.
3. Put remaining coconut back into the blender with 1 cup of hot water. Process again, and squeeze more milk out. If you do this a third time, your coconut milk may be very thin. Add sweeteners and flavorings if you like.
4. Store in an airtight jar and refrigerate. Fresh coconut milk doesn't have the shelf life of regular milk, so use it up in 4-5 days. After sitting in the fridge, the "cream" will begin to separate from the milk. Just shake it up to blend it back together before you use it.
Note: If you'd like to use this as a beverage, thin it out 1:1 with water or until it suits your taste.
