(m)eat to live Posted December 3, 2012 Share Posted December 3, 2012 Let's preface that I love shredded coconut (unsweetened!) I eat it by the handful! Coconut milk, however... I've been buying the Thai Kitchen brand because that's all I can find locally. It tastes super funky to me. To be perfectly honest (sorry), I think it tastes like spoiled breastmilk. I've tasted several cans of Thai Kitchen, so I don't think it was just one bad can. Also, my husband drinks it in his coffee and doesn't think it tastes weird. I will say that the coconutty-flavored coconut oil is also gross to me. I cooked some chicken in coconut oil that I bought from Trader Joe's and it made the chicken taste rancid. I should've known, because when I heated the oil, it smelled like rotten meat! The coconut oil I got from Tropical Traditions doesn't taste or smell like anything, but I think one of them is refined and the other is not (?) I don't know. I just can't do coconut flavor with anything except fruit. Just wondering if I'm the only one??? Everyone else in the Paleo world seems to worship at the altar of coconut milk and I'm just kinda like, "ew..." Or is it possible that I've gotten a bunch of old coconut milk and my husband just isn't bothered by the flavor? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
