    I love this and make a big batch every few days. I use a whole jar with 3 1/2 jars of filtered water in the blender and store it for up to 5 days. I learned about this from Vani Hari – aka Food Babe and I never buy commercial cartons of coconut milk anymore. This is so much yummier and healthier too! Great way to get the good fats from coconut. As suggested by Food Babe I heat it up and add some cinnamon and organic maple syrup and it’s a delicious drink or dessert! Mmmmm!

    I tried this but it did not became milk. There was a layer of fat on top of the water. It was impossible to drink. I heated it up in the hope that it then mixed and it did, but once it cooled down again it separated again and it was almost like coconut oil floating on top of the water. Is it not possible to make cold coconut milk? What are I doing wrong?

    1. Nutiva Team Nutiva says:

      Hi Silje,
      We use the coconut milk mostly at room temperature, as a base of cooked dishes, hot liquid drinks, or place in a smoothie and blended again with other ingredients. If you are experiencing separation, you may need to blend again before using.

      Hi! You can put the ingredients into an app like My Fitness Pal to help with accurate calculations. Thanks!

    Can you use this to bake with? We name with the organic canned stuff all the time and I’m just wondering if it turns out the same in cakes, pastries and other baked goods.
    Thank you,

      Hi, Joni! In some recipes, it would be okay to swap, but in others, it won’t. It depends on what thickness of coconut milk is needed for any given recipe. This coconut milk is likely to be thinner, so in recipes where you need a full-fat, thick milk, we would recommend not swapping. You’ll have to do some testing with it, though, to know for sure. Let us know if you try any great recipes using the Homemade Coconut Milk!
