About coconut milk

Coconut milk is a thick and creamy product made from the flesh of a mature coconut. Coconut milk is a substitute for dairy milk, and it has gained a lot of popularity over the years as people move from dairy products. However, coconut milk has been in use for years as a staple in some cultures' food. Southeast Asian, Indian, East African, and Caribbean people use coconut milk in many of their dishes. Apart from the sweet taste of coconut milk, it has tons of vitamins and nutrients that make it a perfect substitute for dairy. 

A point worth noting is that coconut milk and coconut water are different. Coconut water is found naturally from cracking open a coconut and is less heavy because it has little oils and fats. You can make coconut milk by mixing the flesh of the coconut with water. A brown coconut is picked and crushed. The meat on the inside is grated, then soaked in water, and allowed to rest. The solution is then sieved, and the end product is a thick, milky and creamy solution, which is coconut milk. The process above makes thick coconut milk, but thin coconut milk uses the sieved grated coconut. The strained substance from the first process has more water added to it to make light coconut milk, creating a thin consistency.

Coconut milk is easy to make at home; all you need is a brown and mature coconut and a filter; the most preferred is cheesecloth and running water. Coconut milk is high in calories, and this is a breakdown of its nutrients in 240g or one cup:
