  9. I use coconut milk all the time and while I usually think about making things from scratch I never thought about it … until now. : ) Looks fun!

  10. I never knew how simple this was! I love it! I've been buzzing you like crazy! So glad I found your blog, I love it!

  11. i have made coconut milk using flakes but never from fresh coconut. Cool!

  12. I use coconut milk all the time and it never dawned on me that I could make my own! Genius idea =)

  13. i've never made fresh coconut milk before, but it doesn't look that difficult. i should try it sometime. i bet it taste a lot better fresh!

  16. I am addicted to coconut milk. I will be making this recipe this week.


  17. I'm addicted to coconut milk, always keeping tons in my pantry. I throw it in everything to mix it up. I am sorry I haven't been around to comment lately, but I am trying to catch up (still internetless at the home front!). Please don't hate me ๐Ÿ˜‰

  18. Top 9 – again, congratulations! You do make that coconut milk look really inviting. That sweet sunshine in the background does too ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. So easy. Good to know.
    Love your shot with the sea behind. Very islandy.
    Congrats on T-9! Well-deserved.

  20. I didn't know it was so easy to make your own coconut milk! Looks so delicious ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. I like homemade coconut milk…tastes so different from the can one…way fresher and tastier!

  22. Hey Girlie you're in the Top 9, Congrats!!!

  23. We use plenty of coconut milk into our cooking and into desserts too. But since of late, many over here are cutting down on fresh coconut milk and going for low-fat milk or not using coconut milk anymore. Suppose we are worried about the cholesterol content and our health.

  24. Back to say congrats on top 9!

  25. Wow, coconut milk, I knew their was a reason I loved you so much. This seals the deal. Love it.

  26. oh Boy! all look amazing:) I love coconut is delicious! gloria

  27. COME ON. You are killing me. Here I am trashin it up with my canned coconut milk. And you are getting all Martha Stewart on me. Or maybe you're getting all Tom Hanks stuck on an island on me. Either way = awesome.

  28. There are shops here in Malaysia that instantly grate a coconut, and we just take home to add water to squeeze out the milk. I think we are spoilt and lucky too ๐Ÿ™‚ have to check out your cassava cake next.
    The festival sounds so fun, wish I am there too. any food festival is for me!
    and thanks for dropping by my blog!

  29. Yum! I've never thought to make my own coconut milk! Seems like a no brainer. I bet the festival is so fun!

  30. The coconuts here would not taste the same as in Cayman Island. loving it. Your coconut rice recipe also seems interesting.

  31. The coconut looks so fresh. I could just drink that milk on its own. The coconuts available here in the UK are not so good. We rely on tinned or powdered coconut milk.

  32. I never realized how simple this would be to make! This is awesome! My grocery store actually sells coconuts surprisingly so I'm pumped! I love the idea of a scuba bowl btw… I'm so jealous of your home! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  33. I love coconut milk as well as the shredded coconut which are great ingredients in Asian Food and dessert. Simply love this coconut post of yours ๐Ÿ™‚

  34. I use a lot of coconut milk in our cooking especially in Indian curries. When I had just started cooking, I wanted to impress my husband so I grated the coconut at home and extracted the milk to use in one of the chicken curries he liked. It has such a fantastic fresh and amazing taste.
    Your presentation is amazing!

  35. Oh, man, this must taste fabulous! I'm a huge fan of coconut…and now I'm eying your cassava cake…mmmmmm.

  36. We have plenty of them here in Malaysia ๐Ÿ™‚ Glad that you can make your own coconut milk…it is a must have for making great curries ๐Ÿ™‚ and coconut milk rice is another famous local dish with curries .

  37. oh how wonderful! great recipe

  38. I love just about anything that uses coconut milk but always use the store bought versions. In fact I can't even remember the last time I saw a coconut in the stores. Insure the homemade is so much better. I look forward to making it and will try your recipes.

  39. I'd add some rum to this and would be an oh so happy camper!

  40. Coconut Milk, made from coconut watta, the fruit of the seed!

  41. I love fresh coconut milk, it give your dish a divined touch ๐Ÿ™‚

  42. Homemade coconut milk!
    I get mine fresh from the store! They are easily available over here that we thought nothing of it!
    Pampered! ๐Ÿ™‚

  43. Haha you are very precise about the days – 56. I bet you are literary counting down! I am excited to hear all about it from you. My brother who lives in Thailand often tell me about all the coconut food and coconut related products. I've never had coconut milk before (I think??) but it seems hard to get nice fresh one around here. You make me crave for it!

  44. Coconut milk… something I would not have touched some 20 years ago but something that I truly love now. Never thought of making it myself…
    Can't wait to read about your Taste of Cayman!!

  45. It's been a long time since I had me a real coconut. Maybe I'd feel like I was in the Caymans. Maybe I'd be joining in your countdown.

  46. Oh, I would love a nice glass of that fresh coconut milk…yumm!

  47. Oh Boy! You are Cayman Tourism's secret weapon. I'm sure you have single-handedly doubled tourism numbers in the last year!

  48. So you have 56 days to starve yourself so you are ready to gorge yourself. Or maybe that is the other way around, you need to expand your stomach for the event, better go eat some more, lol. Nice milk!

  49. That cassava heavy cake looks, well, heavenly! Is it sad that I've never contemplated how to make coconut milk? Sending some buzz your way!

  50. You must be beside yourself awaiting the taste of Cayman..56 days 2 hours 10 minutes…must be a certified Yummy Festival!
    Coconut milk and flakes. I love to freeze coconut milk and eat it in place of ice cream. This recipe has spared me from buying the canned, so I will be on the lookout for a coconut in the produce section. Have a great weekend!

  51. Mmm, I've never made coconut milk myself, this looks wonderful! I am so jealous of your Island dishes!

  52. Yum! Homemade coconut milk. Delicious!

  53. Wow fresh coconut milk ….I am dreaming of prawn curry with little mustard paste and coconut milk….just too yummy! I hope you will share some delicious dish with this divine delight dear!:)

  54. Ohh if only I had access to real coconut…hmm I mean I sure I could find some, but just wouldn't be the same not coming from the Cayman Islands! This looks amazing! ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh and feel free to stop by my blog and check out the $50 Williams-Sonoma gift card giveaway going on right now! xoxo

  55. Oh I wish we had this real thing! Looks so fresh and can just imagine the flavour. Friday night is curry night in our house and I'll be dreaming of Cayman, Parsley & Sage while opening the can…

  56. I love this ingredient! It adds versatility to any dish, especially a curry! But many of us always buy it readymade. Thanks for sharing this useful recipe, Parsley Sage!
