milk is scarce. It is made there from fresh grated coconut and. strained coconut water, but two acceptable substitutes for the. fresh product are coconut meal, sold by health food stores, and.

Store in the refrigerator as coconut milk sours very quickly. For coconut cream, allow chilled coconut milk to stand until the cream rises to the top.

Cool and squeeze through a napkin.
