    How much is too much coconut milk?

    I'm eating about 500 ml a day, frozen mixed with cinnamon, I don't put any sweetener in or chocolate or anything, I just spoon it up, but that's...a LOT of coconut milk.

    No answer to your question, but I just drank coconut milk for the first time yesterday. I had refrigerated the can, and I drank about half. This was the first thing I've consumed since PB that I had to make myself NOT get more. I looked at the nutrition info and wowza! I mean, it's yumm-o but I figured I should limit myself to a half can.

    This simply cannot be one of those cases where you can consume as much as you want...... but if I see otherwise, game on.

    Well along with other liquid/semi liquid foods coconut milk is probably less satiating than solid foods, so it could result in overeating. Past that, I don't think there's anything wrong with coconut milk, and I always throw an entire can into my post workout shake

    If I leave it in too long it is like ice, but I just put it in a container of hot water for awhile and it takes on the consistency of ice-cream. Giving up ice-cream is really hard for me, but it's not so much the taste of sugar as it is the temperature and consistency. I was freezing yogurt for awhile, too, before I went no-dairy.

    sounds good. there are a few non dairy recipies floating around often involving banana, or I saw one the other day in a health food store which was made from mostly smooth ground cashew nut and tad of coconut milk (+honey). texture was good, i guess its a question of reducing water content in exchange for oil-based to avoid icy textures.

    Coconut milk isn't going to have a lot of nutrients and after a point there isn't any more monolaurin we can derive from the lauric acid. That being said, there is little wrong with the amount you're consuming. Coconut is practically a staple in some parts of the world and 90% of the fats have the propensity o be simply utilized as energy. The rest of the fats will be used for repair and creation of important things.
