    Coconut Milk comparable to Coconut Oil?


    Thanks - I found a brand that has zero sugar

    http://www.sodeliciousdairyfree.com/...hg_unsweetened

    It contains 5 grans of fat so the question remains, what am I losing health benefits-wise (if anything) from using this product as opposed to EVCO?

    Coconut milk isn't converted from oil. It will still contain MCTs but a lesser amount and will have sugars likely added.

    Calories, it has far less fat in it. Good beverage though. I've found a good, creamy coconut milk in BPA free cans that I'm going to try out. It's called Natural Value Organic Coconut Milk

    Coconut cream comes from the coconut meat after mixing it with water and pressed. Therefore, it retains all the nutrients that coconuts provide such as: carbs, protein, oil, etc.

    The coconut oil comes from the meat (after heating the cream) without all other nutrients (carbs and protein), but it contains much denser medium-chain fatty acids (MCFA's) which promotes excellent health benefits.

    I like to eat raw coconut meat. My preworkout meal consists of coconut meat, berries, and greek yogurt.

    Coconut milk (the natural, unsweetened) makes an awesome martini with vodka, unsweetened cocoa powder, and some stevia

    Yeah, it's pretty addictive!

    I wonder if it is as healthy as the oil!?!

    Should be!

    Wouldn't that be sort of counterintuitive?

    I thought one of the main purposes/benefits was the MCT which provides a nice energey boost

    I switched to coconut milk after stopping milk consumption it's super thick in shakes and not as good in cereal almond milk and coconut oil for the health benefits is a better bet

    Coconut milk is really thick and creamy. It's main use is in sauces, but it's amazing in shakes too, especially chocolate or orange flavored shakes.

    I'm trying to go dairy free soon, and looking for a good alternative to guzzling milk all day. I need to experiment with creating a new drink out of coconut milk, whey, and some other ingredients that will stay fresh after mixed. Guzzling real coconut milk isn't an option, I've tried it lol

    This is one of my current snacks. Try mixing in chocolate whey instead of the cocoa, for an added boost in protein.

    Almond Milk is THIN if you need an alternative non-dairy option

    PS: the NO sugar 50 calorie coconut milk I have is thin as well
