Homemade coconut cream
- 3/4 cup coconut grated
- 2 ½ cups hot water
- Place coconut and water into a blender and let sit for 5 minutes.
- Blend the mixture on high for 5 minutes.
- Using a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth, strain the coconut mixture into a container.
- If using a cheesecloth use your hands to squeeze out the excess liquid.
- Put a lid on the container and store in the fridge.
- Within 24 hours, you will find that separation has occurred.
- The separation is the coconut cream that has settled at the top.
- The coconut cream can be scooped out and used separately in recipes.
You can again use up the coconut cream and pour the milk and cream into a blender and blend until smooth. This will produce a full cream coconut milk which can be used in any recipe that calls for coconut milk.
