  • coconut milk in tea .. may have to be an acquired taste

    So in an effort to up my fat yesterday i drank 200mls of coconut milk ... my stomach didnt appreciate that at all .. and mog laffed at me ...

    so today . .thought id add it to my tea in place of regular milk.

    Im thinking it has to be an acquired taste .. looks like the sargasso sea floating on top, tastes .. well like someone poured coconut into an otherwise perfectly good cup of tea ....

    anyone else tried this particular science experiment ?

    Yes....I reverted pretty quickly to putting cow milk in my tea

    At some point in the future, I intend to experiment with eliminating dairy for a while. At that time, I'll simply drink my tea black.

      yup been there, tried that... couldnt stand the oil slick.

      re drinking coconut milk though, yeah I've found you need to drink small amounts, I mix it in a smoothie with chilled water. If you have too much, lets just say the results can be somewhat explosive and uncomfortable

        I tried coconut milk in my coffee with the vague idea of reducing/eliminating dairy. Yuck! I love coconut milk and I love coffee, but together? Ewww.

          It was easy for me to acquire the taste. I don't want to drink tea or coffee without coconut milk. Because of this I have to buy it by the case.

          BTW, for those interested, Native Forest has been picked up by Amazon so it's a lot cheaper than it used to be.

            Yep. It was pretty bad, so back to heavy cream I went. I wish I could like it though, because I think dairy is what's making my chin break out constantly.

                Same situation here. Coconut milk was not so bad, but heavy cream is so much better. I guess I've decided taste wins over a blemish-free chin.

                  I love coconut milk in my tea and coffee! I just stir it with a cinnamon stick to keep it from sitting in the top.

                      I can't do it in tea. But in coffee, it's not too bad. It's not as good as heavy cream, but it's tolerable, and adds a little more sweetness I think.

                        Gawd, that sounds awful. I think I'll stick to green tea with no oil slick additives.

                        and it was pretty funny to hear you listened to my suggestion about coconut milk, but then drank 200 mL in one go before I could warn you...

                              I tried it for the first time in my coffee this morning. How was it? Well, my second cup had cream.

                              I used to drink soymilk in my tea, but not in my coffee. When I stopped drinking soymilk a few months ago, I just decided that some teas needed nothing and, since I like cow's milk in my black tea, I won't be drinking that anytime soon.

                              I like coffee a lot. I have quit drinking it so many times over the years but always went back. Will I quit again? Maybe. Will it be soon? Doubtful.
