  • In a pitcher (I have a 64 oz pitcher) pour in contents of a whole can of coconut milk.
  • Using the can measure in 3 ½ cans of filtered water.
  • Whisk this together really well or use a hand mixer and mix for one minute.
  • Add in salt, sweetener, and vanilla (these are optional). Whisk them in until incorporated well.
  • If the pouring spout of your pitcher doesn't have a cover you can cover with press-n-seal and refrigerate.


Store up to 7 days in the refrigerator.
