Making Homemade Yogurt Recipe

  • Whole milk
  • 2tbsp-4tbsp of plain yogurt with live cultures

  • Stainless steel pot
  • Non-reactive container with lid or empty yogurt container

Heat the milk in a pot until it begins to simmer and you see little bubbles on the edges. Make sure to watch the milk so it doesn't boil over. Take the milk off the heat and let it cool until you can hold your pinky finger in the milk for about 10 seconds without burning yourself.

How to Make Coconut Butter (Creamed Coconut)

  • Mature coconut (3 or more) 
  • Himalayan salt(optional) 
  • Coconut grater 
  • Knife 
  • Dehydrator (optional) 
  • Wax paper 
  • Baking tray 
  • Coffee grinder/food processor 
  • Extra virgin coconut oil (optional) 

Crack the coconuts in half and grate the meat from inside. Use a knife if you don't own a grater, or refer to the freezer method in this recipe. Whichever way you decide to employ to get the coconut out, see that the pieces are very small.

How to Make Virgin Coconut Oil

There are two methods for making coconut oil at home. One method uses fermentation and the other requires heat. I have made coconut oil using both of these methods, and from my experience the method that uses heat produced a more palatable oil for consumption. 

When the fermentation method was used, the oil had an off smell and taste, so I used that oil for my skin and hair instead. However, I must mention that when I used the fermentation method, it was a very hot summer and I did leave it out unattended for too long and didn't seperate the oil until the 3rd or 4th day so maybe that is why I had those results.  

The amount to make will depend on how much oil you want. Milk from one mature coconut usually contains the equivalent of about 3-4 tablespoons of oil, so using 4 coconuts worth of milk will produce approximately 1 cup of oil. I will outline both methods below. 

Fermentation Method (Virgin Coconut Oil) 

  • Glass or non-reactive container/jar with lid (it is optimal to use a wide jar)
  • Airtight Jar

How to Make Coconut Flour

Coconut flour is an excellent alternative to grain-based flours, but it can be costly. I find that it is cheaper to make your own. I made a post on how to make coconut milk. The by-product of producing coconut milk is coconut pulp/or the remaining fibre. That is what is used to make coconut flour.

  • Coconut pulp(devoid of milk/fat)                 
  • Oven/Dehydrator
  • Baking tray
  • Coffee grinder/Food processor
  • Wax paper
Take the coconut pulp left from making coconut milk and spread it out on a baking tray lined with wax paper. Put the coconut on the tray that comes with your dehydrator if you are using that. 

How to Make Fresh Coconut Milk


  • Mature coconut
  • Warm/hot water
  • Coconut grater(optional)
  • Knife (to crack coconut)
  • Blender/food processor
  • cheese cloth
  • 2 stainless steel bowls
Crack open the coconut and pour the water from it inside a bowl. Use the coconut grater to grate all the meat out into the bowl. If you do not have a coconut grater, you can use a knife, although an easier method is to put both halves of the coconut in the freezer for a few hours. After it is out of the freezer, the white meat should dislodge out of the shell.
