Making coconut flour with a juicer?

how to make coconut flour with a juicer and dehydratorI was trying to find some information on cold pressing coconuts when I stumbled upon Youtube user rawfoods and his unique approach.

1. Shred up the coconut.

2. Bake chunks in a dehydrator at 118 degrees for 12 to 24 hours depending on humidity.

3. Slowly feed the dried coconut pieces into a juicer where the fiber will get extracted from the oil, which is very creamy and can be used as butter if you have the proper coconut.

4. You may need to feed the fiber back through to get additional oil out. This guy uses an Omega 8006 juicer.

5. Feed extracted fiber into a grain mill to make coconut flour.

More on this later when we actually juice up some dried coconuts.

I believe juicers are one of the best inventions ever. There are so many things you could make with one, but I never thought flour would be one of them! So cool. Thanks for sharing this!

You'd probably still want to send the fiber through a grain mill to turn it into a softer flour. We'll see soon!

so would it be possible to run the coconut through the juicer before the dehydrator to get some more coconut milk first? or no? just a thought, nice post though...

Anonymous --- I was wondering that too. I think we'll probably have to try it both ways once I dig up our juicer.
