Coconut milk is made from the meat of the coconut, either fresh or dried. While canned coconut milk is available and convenient, it is expensive and has emulsifiers/preservatives in it. It is possible to hand-grate fresh coconut meat for this recipe (no need to remove the brown peel after taking off the shell) but I prefer using organic dried grated unsweetened coconut.
