I keep mine at room temperature until I open it, and I give it a really good shake first too. After it's opened it goes in the fridge, and then sometimes it gets pretty gloppy. I try to warm it some before I need to use it, and that seems to help.
I recently discovered all the coconut milk I bought opened up "solid". It's just your room ambient temperature. Warm it up a bit and stir it. I found a surprising well of watery stuff at the bottom that really needed to be incorporated into the rest of it. So..just poke it a bunch, put it in a bowl, nuke it for 1 minute.
I use it at room temp when I want it all combined. I just shake shake shake the can for a good minute before opening and it's totally fine, no seperation. When i just want the cream I refridgerate it and scoop that awesomeness right off the top. *Drool*...
The more I see the less I know for sure.
That's a good point Earthmomma - what is room temp for everyone? I try to keep my house between 59 or 62. But I know a lot of people go for 67+.
I whisk it. Recombines incredibly easily with a whisk.
Zone diet on and off for several years....worked, but too much focus on exact meal composition
Primal since July 2010...skinniest I've ever been and the least stressed about food
Soak the can in hot water for twenty to thirty minutes. I do it all the time. No whisking needed, just shake the can before opening.
I love it when it's solid! Then I just scoop a bit out and yummy down on it! lol
Microwaves and hot water? All I've ever had to do is shake the can nice and hard for like 10 seconds before I open it. Comes out completely normal every time. I store it in a capped mug in the refrigerator, where it tends to separate again (thick on top and watery on the bottom) but I just hold the lid down and shake it again and it all comes together perfectly.
