    Where do you guys buy your coconut milk?

    Primal Fuel
    I can't find it anywhere. The only thing I have found is "Coconut Milk" creamer in a milk carton. But I seen you guys post it comes in cans. I've tried Ralphs, Trader Joes, Full'O life and I just can't find it. Am I just looking in the wrong places? Thanks!

    Get out of the dairy aisle. My coconut milk is canned and I typically find it in the thai section next to curry paste etc. I think you might also be able to find it in a hispanic/mexican section as well.

    There's a "Vallarta" grocceries store near my house. Think they'll have it?

    Coconut milk is canned and typically in the asian foods section of your supermarket. Trader Joes only carries a light variety which is actually fairly tasty although watered down. Trader Joes keeps their coconut milk near the sauces and marinades. It is a bright green can. Trader Joes also carries a coconut milk beverage which is really just watered down coconut milk. I actually love this stuff because I have a harder time with full fat coconut milk unless I use it in a curry. I can't drink it or make smoothies with it, just too much for my digestive system, but the beverage I can drink plain and the light I can make smoothies out of.

    The best coconut milk is Whole Food's 365 brand. It runs about 1.89 a can and is well worth the price. If you buy 10 you get a percentage off. The full fat 365 is delightfully creamy and when mixed and refrigerated it turns into a wonderful coconut cream. I use the 365 brand for cooking and occassionally a little over fruit.

    Some stores have canned coconut milk in the Jamaican or Indian sections too. Think ethnic! Asian grocery stores might be a source too.

    organic roofing FTW!

    on topic: make sure you get the coconut milk with the least amount of ingredients. It shouldn't be more than 2 (guar gum, which I don't always avoid) also seconding 365 from Whole Foods and also Native Forest brand. Both are very yummy and way better than Thai Kitchen.

    I gotta re-up my coconut milk, actually.

    Sometimes it's in the 'import' or Asian aisles. Over here it's as common as real milk.
