Turn on the blender and turn the ingredients into a more or less homogeneous mass. Pasta you are unlikely to succeed, because coconut particles are solid. Of these, you then make coconut shavings.
Now we need to separate the liquid, for this we need gauze, which can be bought at any pharmacy. We put gauze over a deep plate and pour coconut mass there. Then we turn the gauze into a bag and forcefully squeeze out the remaining liquid. In the bag you will have coconut shavings, which you need to dry a little, either in the oven at a temperature of no more than 40 degrees with the door open, or put the plate on a hot battery. Store it in a container with a closed lid at room temperature.
Milk from a deep plate is poured into any container with a lid. Milk can be sweetened by adding honey or any vegetable syrup (grape sugar, agave syrup, Jerusalem artichoke, maple syrup, cane sugar). Keep this milk in the refrigerator no more than 3 days, otherwise it will turn sour. Before use, the container with milk should be shaken well, because the surface will be formed coconut oil.
