With a hammer hit the coconut in the middle where you will see a line that goes around the coconut. Keep hitting and rotating, it will crack open into two sections.
Turn each coconut half over and give it a whack and the coconut should come out. Whatever is left behind can be pried out with a butter knife.
With a potato peeler peel the dark brown skin off until it's just white flesh remaining.
Rinse coconut off if needed
For every one cup of coconut add 2 cups filtered water into you blender or bullet. (I usually get 2 cups coconut, and I use 4 cups water)
Add honey, salt, and cinnamon. Blend for about 2 minutes or until there are no more chunks left.
Strain through a cheesecloth into a bowl. (now I use a nut milk bag, and it's so much easier! Squeeze the cheesecloth (or nut bag) to get all the liquid. I usually do half at a time.
Pour coconut milk into a glass jar and refrigerate. Enjoy!
