  2. Now place the pieces in a food processor or a grinder and blend until all is completely shredded.
  3. Next, take a jar and cover it with a coffee filter or cheesecloth to filter the coconut milk.
  4. Squeeze the shredded coconut until there is nothing left in it and let the jar with coconut milk sit for a good 24 hrs.
