  • Ontario, Canada Groksters

    I just noticed the sales flyer for Food Basics and Metro. Coconut milk is less then 80 cents a can. Time to stock up.

    Thanks for the heads up. I'll see if I can find one of those near me.

        Wow, I just paid over 2.50 a can in downtown Ottawa! Thanks for the tip, I have just begun using it and love it.

          Thanks for the heads-up...it's not the brand I usually buy (Mr. Goudas) but I will check it out tomorrow!

              I'm in Toronto and I hate to sound stupid, but do you guys actually DRINK coconut milk? I'm not a fan of curries and the only recipes I can find that use coconut milk are curries...I'll totally stock up on it because I've read that it's the best....but can someone tell me how to use it?

                I'm going to attempt to use it to replace cream and sugar in my coffee in the morning. Right now, I still can't ditch that single sugar in my XL from Tim's. I might even kick my Tim's habit if its workable. Otherwise, I'm open to ideas for it too.

                  Put a bunch of blueberries/raspberries/blackberries/banana/whatever you prefer into the blender and add a can of coconut milk plus a few ice cubes. Blend the shit out of it. Yummy.

                  You can also add a can of it to the pan when you're cooking salmon...it makes a nice creamy sauce for the fish.

                    I live in Quebec. Is the sale not here? Here is my weekly flyer (just control-f the first link, or search through the actual flyer in the second link):

                      I don't drink it straight, personally. As Unamused Mouse said, I use it as a braising liquid for some veggies (sweet potatoes + some diced garlic + coconut milk = awesome). I also drop about a tablespoon or two on top of 1/3 or 1/2 cup of frozen blueberries. Stir the coconut milk all over the blueberries and let it sit for 5 min, then eat it. It's an amazing dessert and very addictive.

                      Also, yeah... I put about a tablespoon into smoothies.

                        Bought coconut cream today-- so good! Mixed it with berries and had it plain. Yum.

                        Regarding coconut milk: I saw it in the store today and it had 10g of sugar! Wrong type? I didn't buy it.

                          I just realized the stuff I have (Aroy-D) is coconut extract (not coconut milk) 60% and water.

                          Can someone explain what difference, if any, there is between coconut extract and coconut milk? This stuff was $1.18. The Thai Kitchen stuff (same size can) was $3.49. Hmmm...

                              Just a heads up for anyone in Toronto.

                              https://buytopia.ca/ has a deal going on for "$39 for $100 Worth of Organic and Naturally Raised Meats from The Butchers".

                              I just purchased 5 for myself. Should keep me stocked for a while.
