    Coconut milk - Solid??

    I just bought my first ever can of coconut milk and when I open it, it was solid, like the consistency of an avocado. Is it supposed to be like that???

    Was the entire can like that? Was there any liquid at all?

    Typically the contents will settle into half cream and half liquid. You can either use them seperate or mix them back together depending on what you want to do with them.

    I bought my first can today and haven't opened it (don't have a clue why I bought it)
    Guess I just read about everyone here using it and thought it might come in handy in the future.
    Can't wait to hear the replies to your post.

    That's the way it should be. Like MFSUNSHINE said, what you intend to use it for will dicate if you'll be using one part or both parts!

    You're supposed to shake it first. Thoroughly. Pretend it's a paint can getting used for the first time (2 min minimum)

    I opened a can of cocnut milk and it was like whipped cream. It sat in my cupboard for MONTHS and I did not shake it.
