  • What do I do with the can of coconut milk I now have in the fridge?

    I was reading about things I should stock up on when I started this diet nine days ago. Most of it I have used, but I have this can of coconut milk. What do you do with that?? Please don't tell me I am supposed to drink it....

      I put about 1/4-1/2 c. of CO Milk in my coffee every day instead of creamer. Delicious, and extremely good for you. I also add 1-2 tbsp. of CO (just the oil), turmeric, and Stevia.

      If you don't want to drink it directly, diluting it in your coffee is great. Not a coffee drinker? How about in green tea? Or just hold your nose and drink some. I personally find it delicious, and easy to drink. But if you don't love it, find a way to incorporate some into your daily diet.

        I thought of that, but Mark seems anti-smoothie. Maybe this thing will just sit there til the recipe that wants it comes along.

          Oh, hells yeah, I am a coffee drinker! I will try it in my coffee tomorrow. I have been using cinnamon and heavy whipping cream in my coffee since I started and don't miss the sugar/sweetener at all.

            A tip about CO Milk: Open the can and pour into a plastic or glass container with a lid. It will be extremely lumpy; in fact, there may be a huge "lump" of CO at the top, with a bunch of liquid that comes gushing out, so pour slowly. CO Milk separates: the "lumpy" part is the CO cream that has risen to the top; the bottom liquid part needs to be mixed in. You will have to stir it each time you use it, as it will always separate.

              Or use it instead of cow milk to make a custard.

                Easy pumpkin custard: 1 can coconut milk, 1 can pumpkin puree, 4 eggs, pumpkin pie spices, sweetener to taste (I use maple syrup). Combine, pour into pie plate or dish, bake for about an hour at 350F or until set.

                Also, you can use it to make curries, use it instead of cream to make a cream soup, put it in a smoothie...so much stuff you can do with coconut milk! It's a staple in my house.

                  I just poured 1/2 cup over frozen blueberries for a snack. I added a little vanilla extract too. Tasty

                    Saute some shrimp and then simmer them in the coconut milk!

                    Did this last night, very yummy!

                        I put it in my herbal chai or add it to a protein smoothie. You can also make egg nog with it.

                          Make some tom kha gai soup. It is perfectly primal and quite refreshing in the summer. Essentially, chicken stock, chicken, hot peppers, lemon grass, galangal (ginger family), lime, cilantro, and coconut milk.

                            I leave mine in the fridge so it gets fairly hard. Then I mix it with berries etc like it's ice cream or yogurt
