If you are lactose intolerant or observe keto (which has been around since 1920s) you will be familiar with coconut milk which adds fat without sugar. If you have coconut flakes in your pantry you can easily make this yourself.
Make your Own Coconut Milk
- 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
- 2 cups water
- 1 pinch of salt
- Place the coconut, water, and salt into blender or food processor and blend for a minute.
- Strain through a jelly or nut bag to remove the remaining pulp. I keep the pulp refrigerated in a sealed jar to use in my baking.
- Store the milk in a sealed jar in the fridge.
