Using a food processor or blender, process the coconut until it is smooth.
- Put all of the coconut mixture into the cheesecloth and squeeze as much as you can. Get all of the water out of it. This fluid is the coconut milk. Refrigerate the coconut milk for use (good for 24 hours).
- Spread the pulp in the cheesecloth onto a baking sheet.Bake in a 200 degree Fahrenheit oven until dry.Process in the food processor, or something similar, until you have the flour that you need.
