Homemade Coconut Milk

Homemade coconut milk recipe that's rich and creamy, and as close to

Homemade coconut milk is pure unadulterated coconut flavor. As close to “straight from the source” as you can get without having to crack open a fresh coconut multiple times per week to get your fill.

Hey, I’m a small girl, I just can’t handle cracking a coconut on a regular basis. Have you tried it? It’s TOUGH. (Oh, I do recommend it, though, because fresh coconut pulp is wondrous and the coconut water is even better.) If you ever see it on the menu at a Thai food restaurant –> order it.

Well, we say these things. We ponder them and delight in the idea. And then we just don’t.

Instead, we typically book short trips to places like Portland, or family visits back East. Places we want to explore every inch of, or see as many friends/family as we can. And then we go to those places. And we run around and sight-see and visit with family. And it’s great. But one of these days, I am just going to up and book that all-inclusive, beach vacation.
