Homemade coconut milk and coconut/hemp pancakes!!

Coconut milk is SUPER easy to make and very inexpensive. You can buy organic unsweetened shredded coconut in bulk for $5 a pound.

I came up with the idea of the pancakes when I was straining the milk and saw all the leftover pulp. OMG they were SO YUMMY and Abril really enjoyed them! We had them for breakfast 3 days in a row hehe

Coconut is packed with medium chain fatty acids and lauric acid. It has many health promoting benefits and is a great option for people with dairy allergies, vegans and for kids.

A serving of organic shredded coconut packs five grams of dietary fiber, which is equal to 20 percent of the recommended daily value. Unsweetened shredded coconut provides a boost of iron and zinc without all the sugar of the sweetened variety. Iron helps the body form hemoglobin, the protein required to transport oxygen-rich blood cells throughout the body. Zinc plays an important role in the immune system and also supports wound healing.

For the coconut milk: 

  • 1 1/2 cups of unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 3 cups of filtered water
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 vanilla bean (or a splash of vanilla extract like I used because I was out of beans)
  • Pinch of sea salt
  1. Blend all the ingredients together in high for 2 minutes, until thick and creamy
  2. Strain with a cheesecloth, squeezing very good to get all the milk out!
  3. Set aside the pulp!
  4. Save on an air tight container in the fridge for up to 3 day

For the pancakes:

  • 1/4 coconut pulp
  • 2 tbs oat bran or rolled oats
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbs hemp seeds
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • Splash of coconut milk
  1. Mix all the ingredients together
  2. Add coconut oil to a frying pan
  3. I used a spoon to measure the batter and they came out a perfect size for her to hold
  4. Fry on both sides until golden
  5. Wait for them to cool
  6. Top with peanut butter or any other butter you want
  7. Serve with some fruits!!
