Homemade Coconut Milk – OMG why haven’t I tried this before

Tonight I tried a new recipe.  I have wanted to make my own milk for over a year.  I thought it would be a ton of work.  I thought it would be a big mess.  I thought it wouldn’t taste as good as the stuff in the box.  Boy was I wrong.  I just needed the right recipe and the push to do it.  Have you heard of Periscope.  It is a new social media application.  It is fun!  It is live videos where you can interact with the presenter in real time.  Oh and yes it is a time suck!  So anyway I follow a woman/nutritionist Erin Woodbury.  She does very quick videos creating healthy recipes.  Today she made coconut milk.  

Here is the recipe: http://livingleanwitherin.com/homemade-coconut-milk-whole-30-approved/ 

So I headed to the store after supper and bought 3 ingredients: unsweetened coconut flakes, dates and vanilla extract.  Blend, drain and waaalaaa!  So I made myself a cup of tea to try it out.  Soooo yummy!  I may never buy coffee creamer or milk again.  No sugar, no additives, no preservatives.  I will buy organic ingredients for the next batch.  Our local store didn’t carry organic.  I could use a fresh coconut too……but that seems like too much work.  Anyone want to come over tomorrow for coffee?
