Does coconut milk require refrigeration?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if coconut milk requires refrigeration after opening? Google results were inconclusive.

I'd like to take a can on a short trip, but won't have access to a can opener or fridge.

What length of a trip? It'd be fine in a container for the day if you were travelling and wanted to bring it open.

Otherwise, for longer spells, yes it does require refrigeration after opening.

If you'll be without a fridge, freeze it in icecube trays and put in a thermos/insulated container.

Sometimes you can find teeny tiny cans too, if you can get those, might be easier to take a couple and a can opener.

Or just a can with a self-opening lid.

I often put coconut cream (it's thicker than the milk) in little dressing containers, portable single serves and you can freeze them to keep them cold longer.
