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


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