Coconut milk

Coconut milk is a product obtained by extracting the juice out of coconut meat. Its taste, appearance and nutrient content are very different from coconut water.

The consistently of this milk varies considerably depending on whether or not water has been added during the process of extraction. Coconut milk is rich in fat and protein. It has a thick creamy texture and is solid white in color, giving it an appearance similar to cow’s milk.
It is not sweet unless sugar is added. Coconut milk contains about 17 to 24 percent fat, depending on how much water is used in processing. The higher fat milk is often called coconut cream and is very thick and rich, just like dairy cream.

Coconut milk can be added to many cold beverages. It can be combined with fruit juice, milk, chocolate milk and many other cold beverages. Coconut milk also can be used to make fruit smoothies, coconut pancakes, clam chowder and creamy chicken gravy. Coconut milk is also an intermediate in the preparation of coconut oil in some rural areas, notably in Indonesia and Malaysia.
