    There are still traces of lactose that could easily make small spikes in insulin. Lactose spikes insulin far more easily than any other sugar.

      Still, it's dairy. Dairy is garbage. Why bother with cream when coconut milk is so much more optimal for ketogenesis, anyway?

        I havent even ever looked for any. I will have to make it a point to get some.

        Question: Do you make your own?

          Asian markets, ethnic markets are your best bets. Or order Aroy-D if you can't find it. It comes in BPA-free cartons and has no additives - and is sweet, can be drunk alone if warmed.

            They had the Aroy-D coconut cream on sale at my favorite Asian supermarket for some ridiculously low price so I bought a whole case. Those cartons are great for storage.

              Even if you're using butter or ghee which shouldn't have any carbohydrate? I can see how cream might, as it has some lactose in it still (even if not as much as milk).

                Butter does. Ghee won't.

                I wouldn't touch tetrapaks either. Those just have been untested forms of packaging. The only coconut milk I drink is my own now.

                  Would you mind sharing how you make it?

                    Buy a coconut that weighs very heavily. Make sure there are no mold spots on the outside. Ideally the color of the skin will be a deep brown.

                    Take a sharp knife and hack at the 3 holes until you get at least one of them open. Deepen the hole with a chopstick (or other thin apparatus that will get you past the white flesh into the middle where all the juice is). Drain the coconut of all the water. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees.

                    When all water has drained, place coconut in oven and bake for 30 minutes. Take out of oven, place in a plastic bag, and immediately smash on ground outside house. Allow pieces to cool, and the meat will easily be taken off the brown shell. Cut the white meat into smaller pieces and place in food processor with a bit of hot water. Blend until the pieces are as pulverized as you can get it.

                    Pour the meat/water into a strainer or cheesecloth over a bowl, squeezing very hard to get all the liquid out, and collecting the meat pieces in the strainer/cheesecloth. Blend again with some warm water to extract more milk.

                    You can use the pulverized coconut meat pieces as coconut flour. Refrigerate the milk if you plan on consuming plain; I think it tastes better cold.

                    As you can see, it's a long process, so I don't do it too often. It will be the most delicious milk you have ever tasted, though.

                      I can't wait to try some! I am thinking I can get bulk coconut at my Dutch store.

                        So I made my BPC w/ghee instead of butter, and used CO of course, not just ghee or butter coffee, and for me, the ghee and the butter are about the same. I don't really like coffee that much anyways, and would much rather drink it SAD way but I havent for months. So I am not that crazy about the taste, but I do like that when it replaces breakfast, it saves me hundreds of calories that I can use later. And if it helps me achieve all the other benefits of fasting, bonus.

                        Now that I have had a few more sips, I think I might be leaning more towards butter.

                          It is basically a primal breakfast drink...

                            I don't think it's magic, but it's been a handy tool if I don't have the food or time for breakfast, or if we run out of heavy cream. I think it tastes pretty good, and it gets a nice frothy top if you use a blender to make it.

                              What do you think butter is? It's beaten up cream.... Pour some cream into your blender some day and let it go for a long time... You get butter.

                                I have a bullet blender of sorts. I put it in the bullet part with the blade, and just shake it by hand so I don't wake up the entire household.
                                How do you get this to work? I thought it was "bulletproof" coffee.
