Vitamix Coconut Milk

Here’s how to make Vitamix Coconut Milk using a high-speed blender and a nut milk bag. Learn how to make vegan and dairy-free homemade coconut milk without fillers or preservatives.

  • Total Time: 6 minutes
  • Yield: 10 1x


Units Scale
  • 1 1/2 cups dried, unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 4 cups warm filtered water


  1. Combine the coconut and warm water in your Vitamix high-speed blender. Process for 20-30 seconds or ingredients are well combined.
  2. Pour the coconut mixed with the water through a nut milk bag into a large bowl. Squeeze the milk through the bag. Discard or save the pulp for another usage.
  3. Pour the milk into a glass container to be stored in the refrigerator (up to 5 days) or use it immediately in recipes calling for non-dairy milk.


  1. If your coconut milk separates in the refrigerator, just shake it up before using it. You may also need to let it warm up on the counter for a few minutes to help it mix up again.
  2. To make light coconut milk, reduce the shredded coconut in half to 3/4 cup instead of 1 1/2 cups.
