  • Coconut milk - HELP!



    Since I've been 100% primal for about 3 months now, I've begun to appreciate (love?) coconut oil for its uses... So, went to costco and spotted, and bought, 12 cans of coconut milk to try and use in whatever-I-can-use-it-in.


    That's where you guys come in! How do you groks and grokettes prefer to use coconut milk? Drinks? curry? treats?


    I've got PLENTY to use up so appreciate all suggestions! Thanks!

    Oh goodies, so many choices I like it in curries and soups. Mark just posted a link to a great broccoli soup that is based on coconut milk. I also love making almond or coconut flour pancakes. Drinks are great too. Just mix your coconut milk with an equal amount of water. Mix it with your eggs to make them fluffy and flavorful. Heck, eat it right out of the can

        Mostly I use it in my morning whey protein shake. I mix 4 oz CM, 8 oz water, and 1 scoop whey. Sometimes when i feel the need to really fatten up, so to speak, I'll use 6 oz of milk instead of 4.


        I also can just drink it straight out of the can. Maybe that makes me weird? I just love it.


        I bought 4 12-can cases a couple months ago. I love to buy in bulk.

          Judging by the comments I think I made a "smoothie" in a pretty incorrect fashion last night. Went something like:


          1 cup pineapple

          1 cup cottage cheese

          1/2 cup coconut milk

          NO water/ice (dammit!)


          Whew, lets just say I won't be doing that again. Oh well, live and learn eh?


          Flynavy - yeah I saw a couple of those recipes and will have to try them out .


          Thanks for the suggestions btw everybody.

            haha Mr. M ... I made a smoothie the other day too. I didn't want to add too much water/ice because I was trying for something calorie-dense. It ended up being like sherbet or something. I ate it with a spoon out of a bowl. Sounds good but... I'm not a huge ice cream/sherbet person and I got really really cold. hahahah.


            Lemmie know if you try my recipes! I'd love to hear how you like it (or if you hate it).

              I put a couple tablespoons of coconut milk in my tea -- two to four mugs a day.


              I also like to pour it over a bowlful of berries or sliced peaches.

                  I make a pretty simple soup.


                  Chicken Broth

                  Coconut milk

                  Spices + Vegetables of your choice

                  Shredded chicken or Shrimp

                  -------------------------------

                  Cook the protein.

                  Boil the veggies in the broth with spices.

                  Stir in the coconut milk and you're done.

                    Hah - so I decided to try just 1 cup coconut milk and 2 cups water. MAN. SO much tastier and easier to drink (as opposed to pretty much full milk..).


                    Flynavy - i'll try your drink when I get around to picking up some flavoring, haha, sounds good tho!

                      I love to make a chicken thigh curry with coconut milk and hot chocolate with the milk. It's also good when added to herbal tea.
