I am on Day 20 of my 21 Day Raw Food Cleanse. I am feeling really good. I did go through a few phases where I wanted to cheat and have a latte a glass of wine or big steak but I stuck it out and feel empowered that I have almost completed it.
During the cleanse I have been making homemade Coconut Milk. After the Cleanse I am going to be sticking to making my own nut milks. It is so simple and fresh and tastes SO much better than store bought.

Take a mature Coconut and puncture with screw driver. Drain out the coconut water. Take the Coconut and wrap in a plastic bag. I take the coconut to my stairwell and smash it a few times on the floor. (Also a great way to relieve tension and stress)

Rinse off Coconut meat and place in Vitamix or Blendtec. I like to add a few dates and a half teaspoon of fresh Vanilla. Fill Blender close to the top with Filtered Water. Blend on High for a minute.

Pour into a medium Bowl through a nut straining bag. Squeeze until the pulp is dry. Pour Milk into Glass container and Voila Coconut Milk!
