Coconut Pineapple Milk

Many people have asked me, “Of all the recipes on your website, which one is your favorite?” Up until now, it’s been really difficult to choose.

I do like this Creamy Dill Salad Dressing and eat it at least once a week. And I quite enjoy Mazidra. And these Wonderful Waffles are really wonderful too. But I like a lot of different foods, and I would have a hard time choosing an actual favorite.

Until now.

Homemade Vegan Milk Recipe

And I can’t even take credit for the recipe!!

A few weeks ago, we had some leftover coconut milk and pineapple in the refrigerator and my daughter decided we should use them up before they went bad. So, she threw them in the blender along with a few other ingredients … and wow!!!

Later that day I took a sip of it, and immediately tracked her down to ask her how she made it. It was delicious!!!! I convinced her to try making it again, only this time writing down the actual ingredient measurements.

And the results (thank you, Sarah) is this bright, smooth, and lusciously creamy Coconut Pineapple Milk – the best cereal sauce you’ve ever had!

I also like it as a base for smoothies, over fresh blueberries, and straight out of a glass.

Health

Many people (90% of Asian Americans, 90% of Native Americans, 80% of African Americans, 53% of Hispanic Americans, and 15% of Caucasians) have difficulty digesting dairy products. For them, the consumption of dairy can lead to stomach distress, irritable bowel syndrome, and digestive issues.

In addition, there are other health issues associated with dairy consumption, including eczema, asthma, diabetes, strep throat, obesity, and cancer. Rich in nutrients, this luscious Coconut Pineapple Milk is a perfect alternative.

(Here’s how to get enough calcium if you don’t drink milk.)

Sugar-Free

Not only is this a super healthy alternative to regular milk, but – unlike some non-dairy milks – this delicious milk is also sugar-free.

Americans eat way too much sugar. Sugar in desserts. Sugar in yogurt. Sugar energy bars. Sugar in sports drinks. Sugar in salad dressings. And sugar over their morning cereal.

Sweeten Your Cereal without Added Sugar

Now, instead of putting sugar on your cereal, you can top it with some fresh fruit (like strawberries or blueberries), some dates or raisins, and this rich, luscious milk! And you have a super healthy and slimming way to start your day!

  1. Hi Jennifer!
    Looove your recipes!
    Just want to ask about fresh coconut milk. Is it ok to use fresh instead of the canned? Thanks! God bless!

    Hi. I made this with almonds instead of cashews, because that’s what I had. Wow! It is really, really delicious served over oatmeal. Thanks.

    Hello Jennifer,

    This milk is exceptional. Once prepared, will it freeze well?? I would like to put half of the recipe up. Let me know. Thanks!

    1. Hi Jeannie,
      I often freeze this milk, but I wouldn’t say it freezes really well. I always have to give it a good whisking after it thaws to bring it back to its normal consistency, and even then it isn’t quite as smooth as freshly made. But it’s very close and no one complains 🙂

  4. This is delicious! I like it on its own and noticed that when I have craved something fat, enjoying a small glass of this curves that craving. I will say that mine turned out think instead of a milk consistency and wonder if it’s because I used canned coconut milk?
    I am also wondering how long can I store this in the refrigerator?
    My 2 year old son loves this and gave me the thumbs up. Thank you!

    1. What a great tip, Jeanne. Love it!

      I did create the recipe to make a thick milk because I really liked it that way, but if someone wanted a thinner milk they could add water or juice . (I’ll make a note of that in the recipe.)

      It will keep for about 4 days in the refrigerator.

      So happy you and your little one liked it! 🙂
