How Do You Make Coconut Milk/Cream?

Coconut Milk is derived from processed coconut meat. It is made by grating fresh mature white coconut meat in hot water.

The mixture is then strained to remove the solid remnants. Coconut milk/cream are available in 3 varient forms: Organic, Natural (no stabilizers), With Stabilizers (xtham gum, Q2/Q3 availability)

Coconut milk and cream are not to be confused with coconut water which is the liquid that comes straight from the center of the coconut and not the actual meat.
