While coconut milk is readily available in tetra packs and cans in India, it can also be made easily at home. With just two ingredients—grated coconut and water—you can make your own batch of coconut milk that is not only fresh and healthy but also easy on your pockets. Once you start making your own coconut milk, there is no way you’re going back to the packaged ones!
Coconut milk tastes great in smoothies, chia puddings, ice creams, and desserts. It is also good for using in south Indian/Thai curries, stews, and soups. Rich and creamy with a delicate coconut flavor, it tastes great in cold coffee/chocolate shakes as well! Now that we’re talking, even hot chai and coffee taste amazing with coconut milk. One thing to be noted is that coconut milk is quite delicate, so you have to be careful when you’re cooking with it.
