Coconut milk has become one of my favorite things to cook with and to drink. Canned coconut milk taste totally different than fresh homemade coconut milk. I think you will be surprised how easy it is to make your own coconut milk and it tastes so much better than canned coconut milk! In addition, I will show you how to make and dehydrate your own coconut flakes. Again, there is no comparison to store bought coconut flakes. Fresh coconut flakes are not stripped of all their fats and have so much flavor!
