  • 1st can of coconut milk-question

    What is it supposed to look like when you open the can? It looks like whipped cream to me with that same look and thickness. It is really cold here so I'm thinking that is why, but I just want to make sure it's supposed to look that way? It says shake before using, but it's solid so nothing to shake. I left it out at room temp overnight before opening but room temp is really cold right now.

    Dig it out with a spoon and underneath there should be water. Mix the water with it and you'll be good to go.

      Yup - mine is typically semi solid, but if I stir it up it gets liquidier (is that a word?)

          I've had a few cans like that. I usually set it in front of the space heater for a few hours to warm it up, then give it a rowdy shake, and it's all mixed up.

            One thing I would suggest if it's your first try of coconut cream though, start off with a small amount and first and build up from there. Too much at a time can cause stomach upsets in some and cream seems to be worse for this than milk (higher amount of fat I guess), at least for me :-)

              Yes, it is supposed to be thick. You have to really shake it a lot or as other suggested pour it out and mix it with a spoon. After opening, mine gets pretty thick in the refrigerator. I usually water mine down to make it more of a thinner consistency before drinking.

                In cold rooms, sometimes it will be separated, with a thick almost waxy top layer and a watery layer underneath. Some brands don't separate because they have emulsifiers added in. Put the can in a sauce pan of water and heat it on the stove for a few minutes. You should be able to shake it and stir it after it warms up a bit.

                    I expected this to have coconut milk?
