Okay, I'm a little slow. But can I just say, wow! Better late than never. I usually start the day with a small glass of coconut milk... just to get the blood flowing. It has way less sugar than OJ.
I am eating it on my cereal if we're out of greek yogurt. I've made smoothies and a chai-style health-benefit tea with it as well. I'll pass you the tea recipe when next we meet. You're going to need it during cold and flu season.
Here is the coconut skinny, the low-down... the gospel according to Wikipedia: Two grades of coconut milk exist: thick and thin. Thick milk is prepared by directly squeezing grated coconut meat through cheesecloth. The squeezed coconut meat is then soaked in warm water and squeezed a second or third time for thin coconut milk.
There is an enormous difference between canned coconut milk and the coconut milk beverages found in cardboard containers in the dairy case along with soy milk. Refrigerated coconut milk beverages contain a fraction of the fat and calories found in canned coconut milk.
You can find it cold in half gallons, or in one of those shelf-stable cartons. I watch for them to go on sale and keep a few in the pantry.
Coconut milk. It's not just for pina coladas, anymore! But, go ahead... Feel free to add one of those tiny umbrellas to your glass;)
