I strain my blended coconut with cheesecloth before I put the "milk" in the fridge. I add water to the blender (while it's blending) until it's about the consistency of a milkshake before I consider it "done". I pour a small amount onto the cheesecloth and use both hands to wring all of the liquid out of it. Discard the dried coconut from the cheesecloth and repeat. A time-consuming process, but well worth it. And like Il Capo said, what you yield (about 3-4 cups worth) will last you for a couple of weeks.
