Homemade Coconut Milk

CoconutMilk

Ok so if you get tired of searching your local supermarket for coconut milk that doesn’t have guar gum or some other preservative that might upset your stomach, then you can always make this recipe at home.  Dana and I add it to our coffee in the morning and use it to cook with when we are making our favorite Thai dishes, baking or making creamy soup.

From our kitchen to yours, Bennett
