How to make coconut milk

Non-dairy milks are so easy to make at home! I’ve made rice, buckwheat, sesame-hemp seed, and more… Lately, I’ve been on a mission to find quick and easy ways to make myself non-dairy milk for tea and lattes, and have come up with the fastest one yet. Let me show you how to make coconut milk!

This is a super simple version, using canned coconut milk, and transforming it into a beverage or cereal-style non-dairy milk.

This is great, because I can always have a can of coconut milk in the cupboard, so that if I need to whip up some non-dairy milk when I have guests, this can be on hand and ready in just a couple of minutes. Give it a try, and let me know what you think!

Quick & easy 3-minute coconut milk

Servings 5 cups


  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1.5-2 cans water
  • 1 tbsp unrefined sugar or puree medjool dates, or a few drops of stevia


  1. Put the coconut milk and water in a pitcher. The exact amount doesn't really matter, just whatever proportion gets you the consistency you want once it's stirred up.

  2. Stir in the unrefined sugar, stevia or puree it with some soft dates.

  3. Keep covered, in the fridge, and use within about a week and a half. Stir as you use to avoid clumping.

    Sounds good I don’t know if I will like that coconut flavor though I drink almond milk in my cereal really like.

      That’s what the vanilla stevia drops help with, or use a touch of vanilla extract 🙂
