What are the Benefits of Using Coconut Milk?


Real Thai coconut milk is made by grating the flesh of the coconut and soaking it in hot water. This way the cream rises to the top, where it can be skimmed off. The remaining liquid is then passed through a cheesecloth to extract as much of the coconut milk as possible. As this process is repeated the milk becomes thinner. While the thicker version can be used in Thai delights like desserts and rich sauces, the thinner coconut milk is used to cook curries and soup. While fresh coconut milk is not available in the UK and mainland Europe, our cans of real Thai coconut milk has just as many benefits.


Aside from helping to create the most delicious dishes, real Thai coconut milk can have a number of different health benefits. Coconut milk will help lower blood pressure and cholesterol and help build muscle. It is rich in electrolytes and can fight fatigue, which is perfect for busy families. As a rich source of healthy fats and protein, it is an exceptional alternative to using cows milk. Not only does this mean that it makes an ideal choice for any vegans, but it also has no lactose, making it perfect for those who are lactose intolerant. It can make a great substitute with which to make smoothies and milkshakes. We would definitely recommend adding it into your diet. 


Is coconut milk the same as coconut water? There can be some confusion between coconut water and real Thai coconut milk, however there is quite a discernible difference. Coconut water is the clear liquid that you can drain out of a young coconut. Coconut water therefore has less fats but is rich in carbohydrates and electrolytes that are useful for rehydration after intense exercise. Real Thai coconut milk is thicker, creamer and has a very different role within Thai cooking.
