Fresh Coconut Milk
I decided to be a bit adventurous on this one. Having read on the can
that coconut milk is made from steamed coconut, I figured I could make it
fresh. I bought a coconut and after much effort, and several friends
making suggestions, I finally got it open. Actually, a hammer and
screwdriver works best. Then I took the meat out and boiled it with
bottled water. One medium coconut made about 6 cups of milk/broth. I
imagine it will work the same.

a frosty shake.
