raw vegan gluten-free Young Thai Coconut Wraps

~ raw, vegan, gluten-free, nut-free ~

I can’t believe that I have never shared how to make Young Thai Coconut Wraps before!  I have been making them for years… what a disservice. :)

Coconut wraps are great for creating fun and interesting new meals. Sometimes I make my own wraps, and other times I use store-bought ones.  Click (here) to see the brand that I prefer over any others that I have tried.

Where I buy my coconut meat…

When it comes to making my own wraps, I purchase my coconut meat through Exocticsuperfoods.com. I am not sponsored by them, though I ought to be for all the plugs I give. Hehe Anyway, I have been ordering from them for about five years now, and truthfully, it’s just about the only way that I will buy young Thai coconut meat anymore.  Long gone are my days of cracking open cases of coconuts to process the meat and water… then leaving the results in the freezer, while waiting for recipe inspirations.  Even though their price may seem high, in the end, I find it much cheaper and far more reliable.

If you decide to crack your own coconuts, make sure that you remove all of the brown membranes from the white meat. And since the meat inside of the Young Thai coconuts is unpredictable it will take anywhere from 2-4 coconuts to get enough coconut meat to make wraps.  If the flesh is super soft, almost transparent, I will save it for your smoothies. Please check out (this) post that I did, all about Young Thai coconuts. You might find it helpful.

Keep an eye on the drying process!

Another key factor in creating great coconut wraps is to be attentive during the drying process.  Once I start drying the sheets of blended coconut meat, I check in on them every few hours. Once they are dry enough to flip over, I peel off the non-stick sheets.  This speeds up the dry time so the air can fully circulate around the wraps.  The edges will always dry out a little quicker than the center.  And that’s ok, I just trim off about 1/4″ around the edges and enjoyed the scraps as a snack.  You’ll know when a wrap is done when it isn’t tacky to the touch and yet remains flexible.

You can shape the batter into circles if desired or make large sheets that can be cut into various sized wraps.  I hope you enjoy this simple but delicious recipe! If you are looking for a way to use these wraps, check out my Morning Glory “Egg” Salad Burrito recipe. Blessing, amie sue


yields 1 (14 x 14″) Excalibur tray


  1. In the blender combine the coconut meat, coconut oil, water, and salt.  Blend on high until creamy smooth.
    • You shouldn’t be able to detect any lumps… pure silkiness.
  2. Pour the batter onto the non-stick sheet that comes with the dehydrator.
    • Be sure the mesh sheet is underneath the non-stick sheet for stability.
    • If you don’t have the non-stick sheets, you can use parchment paper, but not wax.
  3. Spread from edge to edge (evenly!) with an off-set spatula and clean up the edges.
  4. Dehydrate at 115 degrees (F) for roughly 4 hours.  Place a new mesh sheet on top of the wrap, followed by another tray frame.  Now flip the whole unit over. Remove the tray, mesh sheet, and peel off the non-stick sheet.  Slide back in the dehydrator until dry.
    • If the non-stick sheet is sticking in areas, don’t force the sheet off. Let it dry a little longer and try again.  You could risk tearing.
    • Dry just until you don’t see any wet spots and the wrap isn’t sticky to the touch.  We want to keep it flexible.
  5. Once cooled, cut into desired shapes and sizes that you need for your dish or just plain enjoyment.
  6. To store, lay the coconut wrap on a sheet of plastic wrap and roll it up into a tube.  Should keep for several months.

    Dear Amie, this is wonderful to make! Thanks for sharing and inspirations. I am exploring if i can buy young coconut meat online.nl but it seems not available on this time frame.. mabye later. Once i saw 500-1000gram frozen bag of Thai coconut meat in a Chinese toko in CS-Amsterdam. Maybe i try that for once to see how it goes. Will you please share how to divide frozen coconut meat in small batches? many thanks and Blessings

    • amie-sue says:

      Hello Afsaneh, I don’t divid up the frozen meat when it gets to me. It comes in 1 lb bags which is the perfect size for me to thaw and use for various recipes. Did you try ordering from this company? http://www.exoticsuperfoods.com/products/young-thai-coconut-meat

      blessings my friend, amie sue

      • Afsaneh says:

        Hi Amie Sue, yes Thanks, i send them an email. I let you know if it is possible to ship to the Netherlands and how it works.In my heart i am not happy with Chinese toko either…;)Blessings, XO

        • amie-sue says:

          Yes please, keep me posted Afsaneh. Fingers crossed x <---- does that look like crossed fingers? lol Have a wonderful weekend. Blessings, amie sue

          • Afsaneh says:

            Hi dearest Amie Sue, Unfortunately exotic superfoods does not ship to EU. But good news that i found Dutch importer of young coconut from Vietnam. I called them to ask about the purity of their product and it is just frozen young coconut with no preservatives or blanching! So i am defrosting the first bag 250gram (with no juice in it) to make it ready for my first coco yogurt and then wraps…I already make coconut kefir with natural organic kefir flowers and it tastes wonderful. Thank you for inspiration and good vibes, much love and blessings.

            • amie-sue says:

              Good morning my friend. I am sorry that they didn’t work out BUT so happy that you found an alternative place to find it at. I can wait to see what you create with them. :) Sending you kitchen blessings, amie sue

            • Veronica says:

              Hi Afsaneh,

              I just thought I’d let you know that you can order raw coconut wraps from http://www.rawliving.eu (for those times that you do not have time to make your own.) They ship to Sweden so I am sure they ship to Holland too! 🙂

              • amie-sue says:

                Thank for sharing your contact Veronica. :) I hope Afsaneh sees this. Blessings, amie sue

                • Afsaneh says:

                  Hello, Thank you very much Ami and Veronica! I checked your link! very nice products. Yes healthfood shops in Holland sell coconut wraps as well, online/shop! the adventure is to find good quality frozen young coconut to make yogurt,…i tried frozen young coconut from Vietnam! the coconut is not as young as Thai version and it stays a bit grainy…but i am happy with results. i also found the frozen Thai version which is very soft as it suppose to be, but the mixed juice is sweet and i am not sure if it is all natural. the meat after defrosting was al soft velvety in one blentec go. i have to see what the yogurt result is going to be…is it going to be sour..?? my conclusion by now is none is to compare with fresh young coconut which is a quite hard work to go after ;)I am sure after a while we can find good quality frozen young coconut here as well. it is just a matter of catching up…we already have coconut yogurt at healthfood shops, just two weeks ago,… so, i will let you know when i get my hands into those natural, soft organic coconut..i cannot wait..:)))XO

    Once flipped “approximately” how much longer do they take? Minutes, half an hour or hours?

  6. Kimball says:

    I love your recipes – right now I have the buckwheat bread in the dehydrator – making the basil “cheese” a little later. The SMELL in my kitchen is wonderful. Thank you! Also the emerald crackers are one of my favorites!

    • amie-sue says:

      You bet Kimball :) Thanks for sharing. I know how wonderful those aromas can be!!! Enjoy and have a happy weekend. amie sue

  7. Nancy says:

    Did I miss a yield? I know you said 1 tray, but how many wraps is this? 4? Thanks for clarifying,

    • amie-sue says:

      Nope, you didn’t miss a yield. I just shared the size of sheet that it will make. From there you can cut it into the size and shape that you want. Have a great weekend . amie sue :)

  8. Lorna says:

    Thanks Amie-Sue. I’ve been needing an easy raw coconut wrap recipe for a while now. I will certainly give it a try.

      You are welcome Lorna. I can’t believe that I never put the recipe on my site. Too many recipes, so little time. hehe Blessings and enjoy, amie sue

  9. Kay says:

    Could this be made with coconut flakes instead? Much thanks,

    • amie-sue says:

      I haven’t tried it Kay… not too sure you could get it smooth enough. If you give it a try, keep me posted. amie sue
