Why You Should Make Fresh Coconut Milk (And How)

Chef Notes Icon

Love coconut-centric dishes like curries and Bicol Express? Try making them with freshly squeezed coconut milk.

Yes, the canned stuff is more convenient. But we think that fresh coconut milk is worth the effort for superior flavor and fragrance. You'll taste the difference right away.

Plus, coconut milk is simple to make—no need to climb a tree or wield a cleaver (unless you want to). You need two things to get started: water and fresh coconut meat.

We'll explore the whole extraction process from start to finish, and what to do with your leftover coconut pulp after.
