Open the coconut by hacking with a sharp butchers knife or kitchen ax type utensil, Once open scrape out all the white flesh and place inside a blender. remove all shell from the pulp. add the coconut water into the blender then. pulse and blend until smooth. Then strain through a “nut bag” and squeeze the liquid into a bowl. then you have coconut milk with all the flavor. you can use the ‘dry” pulp in your garden or wherever but it doesn’t have much flavor anymore.

That is a great question! I would probably add it in with the blending after soaking. I think if you were to soak it, you might lose the coconut flavor with the discarded water. But, adding coconut water during blending is also a good idea. I would worry it might get too sweet with the coconut water, though.

Please let me know what works out for you!

Thoughts on how to incorporate coconut into it? Soak it in the water overnight? or add coconut water during the blending? Open to suggestions.
Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, absolutely. It will be just fine, especially with the ice pack.

Enjoy your new toy!

Not a stupid question at all! I use raw, soaked almonds. You could certainly use roasted, but, in my opinion raw are “healthier” because they haven’t been exposed to high heat. But, whatever you have will technically work. I would still recommend soaking and rinsing them first, whichever you use.

You know, I have never really been able to figure this one out because of exactly the reason you noted, but, I reckon it is similar to something like Trader Joe’s unsweetened almond milk, which has about 40 calories per 8 ounces, 2 grams of carbs, 1 gram of protein, and 3 grams fat.

Do you happen to know the calorie/fat/carb count for this? I was not sure what to count as far as the almonds since the recipe is just basically using the water and straining the almonds. I am watching calorie/fat/carb and especially inflammation ratings on foods due to auto-immune conditions and was curious how to tally this one up.

Thanks.
