So many of the paleo recipes that you find will require coconut milk as an ingredient. The coconut milk is an alternative for a few different ingredients in a lot of recipes, namely for regular milk.
Coconut milk has plenty of health benefits because of high amounts of fiber, vitamins C, E, B1, B3, B5 and B6 and minerals including iron, selenium, sodium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorous. It is lactose free, unlike regular milk as well. Despite all of the good, it is also very high in saturated fat, so you shouldn’t drink it every single day.
Canned coconut milk can get pretty expensive, so this recipe is here to help you with your budget.
Before I go on with this quick recipe, I just wanted to make mention that coconut water and coconut milk are not the same thing. Coconut water is the liquid that is stored in a coconut, while coconut milk is made from the pulp/meat of the coconut.
