Almond Milk


Recommended Posts

I've decided I'm going to use coconut milk in smoothies, along with sweet potato/yam/butternut squash, to fuel my training runs. I'll emphasize the starches instead of the coconut, so this doesn't become an ice cream replacement.

The Aroy-D is pretty dang good in coffee. We leave it in the fridge, pour off the liquid and scoop the cream into our cups. Just give it a little stir to mix it in and enjoy! (Also great in kinds of recipes.)

I'm on day 3 and still missing coffee......

I had the same issue - tried coconut milk in coffee, tried to kid myself it tasted good... (I like coconut milk for cooking), but yeuch something weird about the way it kept separating and not a fan at all. So then I started drinking coffee black, and discovered that as long as it's good coffee (I have an espresso machine) then it kind of grows on you. Now I drink coffee black all the time! Makes you realise that instant coffee sort of tastes a bit like marmite once it's missing the milk :-/ won't ever be touching that stuff again!

I bought a can of Thai Kitchen coconut milk at my local food co-op today, and I found myself eating it as if it were vanilla ice cream. I must have eaten almost a cup! It didn't turn out to be too appetizing in coffee, but it sure does take care of my ice cream cravings!

I am confused. I bought a can of Thai coconut milk, put in the fridge overnight and poured some over some sliced strawberries. It was great. But it definitely was not think like ice cream. And someone said it is almost like whipping cream. What gives?

Nancy -

Very often, the coconut cream (fat) and water will separate. The fat hardens and becomes a bit like whipped cream. Sometimes, given the nature of the product (very natural), the two don't separate. Then you just end up with a nice, rich coconut milk.

I had it in the fridge overnight and when I opened it, it was very thin and watery. Not thick and creamy at all. And it did not separate.

That sounds like you had coconut milk light (they add water) instead of the real thing. It doesn't do the same thing as the full fat version does. Also, what exactly were the ingredients. Some versions have some additions that have things added to keep it from separating and it seems to me that a can of Thai coconut milk had just that in it when I looked at it.
