Homemade Coconut Milk & Coconut Yogurt. ~ Pauline Hanuise {Recipes}

Make Your Own Coconut-Milk

It’s never been so easy to make homemade coconut milk and yogurt.

All it takes is a whole young coconut and a few minutes!

Coconut Milk

Serves 2-4


  • 1 whole young coconut (flesh + water)
  • Optional: cinnamon, vanilla or any of other preferred spices


1. Crack open the coconut and pour the water into a jar.

2. Scoop the flesh and place into a high speed blender.

3. Pour some of the coconut water into the blender with the flesh.

4. Add more or less water to adjust the consistency of the milk. For a creamy milk, use less water. (I used about two cups of coconut water for one whole coconut flesh.)

5. Drink fresh, it’s delicious!

Coconut Yogurt

Serves 2-4

For coconut yogurt (instead of the milk), add less water into the blender as well as a tablespoon of probiotic (liquid or powder). If the consistency is too liquid, add some desiccated coconut and keep blending until a smooth consistency is obtained.

Leave the mixture to ferment for one to two days in the fridge and the result will be a nice creamy and healthy yogurt.
