How To Make Coconut Cream


Step 1Place a can of coconut milk into the fridge overnight. Don’t shake the can before opening. It should get very thick and the solids should separate from water. If it doesn’t, you need to try another brand. I recommend Thai Kitchen Organic or Native Forest or any other brand that works well for you.
I used "What On Earth Organic Coconut Milk" when I made this recipe. It's the best canned coconut milk I've tried in the UK. However, last time I checked, this brand was unavailable and I'm not sure if/ when it will be available again.

Step 2Once thick, transfer to a bowl (without the water!) and mix with a spoon, whisk or a blender.

Step 3The extracted cream can be used immediately or stored in the fridge for up to 3 days.
