Once strained you can add flavourings such as vanilla extract or sweeteners such as agave nectar.  I did not use either for my recipe as I enjoy the pure flavour of the coconut. 😋👍

Done! Keep in airtight glass bottle and consume within 48 hours.  Note: this is the most natural form of coconut milk therefore once in fridge it will 'sleep' so the bottle needs to be shaken. ENJOY!
