  • When recipe asks for coconut milk...

    Hey bakers,

    When a recipe asks for coconut milk, do you take that to mean a can of coconut milk or coconut milk that you buy in the refrigerator section (like So Delicious)? I am going to used a can or organic Thai Kitchen unsweetened coconut milk, but I'd love an opinion or answer for future reference.

    Making Coconut Bars from Elanaspantry.com. I'm using raw coconut nectar as a honey sub; good thing I love coconut. Thanks!

    I take it to mean the thicker full-fat canned stuff, not the watery carton beverage type.

      Glad to know I can trust my culinary instincts (at least this time). Thanks.

      BTW, they smell AWESOME.

        They mean canned, unless specified otherwise.

            Kaylee99, these bars are more like a solid custard. I think I will up the coconut flour next time (only 1T) and see if they firm up. The taste is amazing; if you love coconut. I actually ate some a few minutes ago with some leftover chicken breast. My husband will not touch them... he is a super athletic, fit man (46) who sadly has a strong family history of heart disease. He is also an MD, which makes convincing him that some fat is good/MCFAs are good is tough. His conventional wisdom is to eat low fat and high cardio. He looks great, but I worry about him long term. Baby steps; he did eat bacon wrapped chicken last night. Thanks for the input.

            The coconut nectar (liquid) is so delicious! Dangerous stuff.
