Homemade Coconut Milk (Guar gum-free!)

Author: Michele
Servings: 4 cups
Coconut milk is a great milk alternative for anyone on Paleo or AIP, cutting down on nuts/seeds, or who have allergies to nuts or seeds. It’s just 2 ingredients and comes together in minutes. This is a guar gum- free and carrageenan-free version too, making it great for diets like AIP and Whole30 and anyone avoiding additives. Plus you save MONEY :-)
