substitute for fresh coconut?

edited December 2010 in Food Preparation

Can you soak dehydrated coconut and use it in recipes that call for fresh coconut? Has anyone tried this before and did it work?


  • I did soak dehydrated coconut once and then make coconut milk with it, it came out good. Have you ever tried the raw coconut powder? My boyfriend made a smoothie with it and said it was even better than almond milk. Possibly that may be a substitution for fresh.

  • Hi Spirit,where do you get raw coconut powder?I’ve never seen it.

  • Hi Lucy, My BF ordered it from Alissa Cohen, I have not tried it yet but it sounds good.

  • Yes,it sounds good.I’ll check this out.Thank you.
