We all know how delicious coconut milk is don’t we?
And we all know how good coconuts are for us…
So coconut milk must be great for our health then?
Well there’s actually 2 types of coconut milk:

- Coconut milk from a can – better for us but watch out for nasty fillers. I recommend this brand with no nasty fillers. This type of coconut milk is high in good fats. This is thicker, very filling and higher in calories.
- Coconut milk from a carton – not so good for us as this often contains sugar and nasty fillers. This is lower in calories, much thinner in consistency. We are going to recreate a healthy version of this today. This is a popular brand that I DON’T recommend because it contains refined sugars, MSGs and other chemicals and preservatives that will harm your health.
Today I’m going to show you how to easily make your own coconut milk in seconds using just 2 ingredients.
No need to bother with prising open coconuts, or adding dried coconut that needs straining.
All we need for this recipe is just 2 ingredients…
- Coconut butter (See the brand I recommend here)
- Water (Make sure it is filtered to avoid harmful chemicals in tap water. (I recommend this filter)
This coconut milk is best served freshly blended as it tends to separate a bit when left in the fridge. But if you are using this coconut milk in one of my Green Thickie recipes – you can store as much as you like in the fridge.
Coconut is a healthy fat, is good for your heart and helps you lose weight.
Here’s another tip… instead of buying coconut butter which can be very expensive, instead buy creamed coconut. It is exactly the same product, it’s just called a different name. You can usually find creamed coconut in the Asian section of your store, or you can get it on Amazon. This is what is looks like.

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
