Homemade Vanilla Coconut Milk and Coconut Flour

I looked up a couple different recipes for homemade coconut milk. They seemed simple enough so I thought I would give my hand at it. I was surprised to find it was actually simpler then I had originally thought. I think we often get taken back by things that don't have obvious ways to open, like a lid or using a knife to just peel. But with a little modern technology and thinking like a "cavegirl", this was so simple to break into and can be used as a stress reliever (watch out for your fingers :) )

Here is what you'll need:

1 coconut and it's water

2 cups gently warmed water

1 Tablespoon vanilla of choice

2 teaspoons local raw honey

wine opener

sharp knife


measuring cup

small strainer


blender and food processor

sheet pan
