I have read many good things about Coconut Milk, so I bought some, and now, after using my one and only recipe, I'm searching for more easy recipes to use.

Here it is and is delicious for breakfast:

TROPICAL FRENCH TOAST

In pie plate, combine 1/2 cup coconut milk, 2 eggs and a capful of vanilla. Dip sliced Italian bread in mixture (both sides).

Place on greased baking sheet; bake in 400 degrees oven 15 min, turning once.

I didn't bake it, but used coconut oil in the skillet just like making regular French toast. I also didn't have Italian bread but used multigrain instead. Really was delicious.


Anyone else have any easy coconut milk recipes they could share.

Thanks.

Be careful with coconut milk. A little goes a long way. While delicious, this stuff can pack on the fat pounds very fast. Added to other food is good but, for a short time a way back when my mouth hurt too much to eat, I was drinking a couple cups of coconut milk a day. Big mistake.

But, just 1/4 cup a day works okay for me. And I can also use coconut oil in stir fry, etc. and get that great coconut flavor.

Even for those who need to gain some weight, too much coconut milk will add the wrong kind. It goes straight to fat, not muscle. But a little bit works very well, just not as a beverage unless diluted with lots of water.

Coconut milk is fantastic on steel-cut oatmeal and other non-gluten cooked whole grains.

Hot quinoa or buckwheat groats are especially good with a little bit of coconut milk and cinnamon, with a dash of cardamom. Stevia (from the plant) is a good sweetener. SweetLeaf Stevia also has various flavors.

The whole grains take far longer to metabolize in our body and are far less likely to contribute to diabetes than processed grains. Lyme patients are at a much greater risk for developing diabetes so we really have to be very careful to avoid all processed foods. Coconut oil and moderate use of coconut milk can help to minimize the glycemic index of a meal and the oil can also supply energy to our cells - but we still have to be mindful of the total calories.

Curry dishes also are fabulous with just a bit of coconut milk added just before serving. I first saut onions and garlic in coconut oil and then don't need as much coconut milk at the end.

When buying coconut milk, avoid the "light" or "lite" as you are just paying for a lot of water. Get the real deal but then you can add your own water or use just as little as you like of the thick milk.

GINGER, &/or Lemon Grass - fantastic with coconut milk. CURRIES, too. Coconut milk enhances the fabulous flavors of Indian meals. The cuisine of Vietnam and Thailand also really know what how to maximize the potential of coconut and spices.

I love coconut anything!

Tropical Traditions website has excellent information on all things coconut. It also has a lot of excellent recipes!!
www.tropicaltraditions.com/

I get my coconut oil, coconut cream concentrate, coconut flour, and coconut flakes from them.

Coconut milk has a lot of coconut oil which is very good for you. Coconut oil is antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal.

I mix unsweetened chocolate almond milk with a little coconut milk and heat up for hot chocolate.

Thanks very much.

Keebler, Great reading. I did make the mistake of buying the "lite" coconut milk. I was thinking less calories forgetting it would be watered down.

I printed out some of the recipes of the site you posted, Ruby. Thanks.

My one coconut milk recipe is one that I use for a dessert of sorts that we eat when there's that hankering. It's very rich.

For most people it is likely not so "dessert-ish", but we don't eat any sweeteners of any sort, so it is quite the treat. If you use sweeteners of any kind, I'm sure you could add alittle to sweeten it up. For us, the coconut milk itself is sweet enough.

Incredibly simple:

Pour a can of coconut milk in the blender.

Add in 3-4 hand fulls of pecans (more will make it thicker and nuttier, less will be creamier -- whatever you feel like)

Blend until creamy and mixed well.

I sometimes sprinkle some cinnamon on top.
