  • Coconut milk

    I'm sure this has been asked in the past, but I couldn't find it. When recipes say "coconut milk" are they referring to the kind in the dairy section next to almond milk and cow milk?

    I am assuming most recipes refer to the canned variety which is much thicker. I see that in most of the Primal recipe pictures.

    Thanks in advance!

    They are referring to the full-fat, canned variety.

      They are definitely referring to the canned stuff, but just thought I'd throw in that in a pinch I have used the other coconut milk (next to the almond milk) & the results were fine.

            You can sometimes find coconut milk frozen as well. It usually just has coconut and water - no preservatives. I find it to be loads more delicious than the canned types.

              They are referring to the Thai Kitchen/Native Forest kind. The crap in the dairy section is a coconut flavored beverage :P

              The good stuff is Native Forest. If you are in the US, you can get it as cheap as $1.70 something a can if you go on amazon & use the subscribe option. The 12 cans last me a whole month & it's only $21. Pretty sweet deal IMO
