    Coconut Cream

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    Followed Mark's advice and left the can of coconut milk overnight in the fridge but it hasn't set but it has separated slightly. Have I missed something? If not can I just freeze it for ice cream or something?

    Did you buy the full-fat or the light? Light coconut milk will not separate and yield you the coconut whipped cream. Leave the can out for a while to soften then process it through a blender to return to a homogeneous consistency, and use can reuse the milk however you want.

    Hmm, there's nothing saying low-fat or light on the can. according to the nutritional information the fat is 5g/100g which seems pretty low?

    I've got some Coconut oil, would blending that in restore the fat levels?

    Before refrigerating, I put it into a bowl and mix it up real good. Then set it in the fridge over night. The next day, it's a real thick cream.

    I shake up the can, open it, pour it into a jar with a lid and put it in the fridge. Also, I shake the container each time prior to use. It doesn't get thick like whipped cream or ice cream. It is more like the consistency of blue cheese dressing.

    I shake mine up in a protein drink mix shaker before it goes into the fridge.

    That does sound low on the fat for 100g. What brand is it? Coconut oil solidifies at cold temperatures, so you would have to add in melted coconut oil and whip the crap out of it to make sure it blends perfectly before putting the coconut milk back in the fridge.

    Coconuts (ie. no added water) produce about 30-35% fat. Cans vary depending on how much water is added. The brand I buy is 20%.
