Almond Cow Coconut Milk recipe using fresh coconut

Coconut Milk

Did you know you can use fresh coconut meat, shreds, flakes, or even toasted coconut in the Milk Maker to make homemade coconut milk in moments? Coconut milk is a great source of healthy fats and is a great vegan alternative to traditional dairy. With its creamy texture and wide variety of uses, you'll be adding this milk to your rotation in no time!

Servings: 5 cups


  • 1 cup coconut shreds (coconut meat or flakes work as well)
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
  • 3 chopped, pitted dates or 1-2 tbsp maple syrup (optional)


Step 1

Place coconut shreds, dates, and sea salt in the filter basket. Attach the filter basket to the top of the Milk Maker and twist in the direction of the close arrow to secure.

Step 2

Fill the Milk Maker base to the MIN line (5 cups) with warm water*, add vanilla. Attach the top.

Step 3

Plug in the Milk Maker and press the cow start button. It will run through 3 automatic stages. When the green light stops flashing, your coconut milk is ready!


After the milk has been made, pour it into your container and let it cool completely. Once cooled, give it a shake and place it in the refrigerator. This helps reduce the chance of getting coconut fat clumps in the milk.
