Coconut adds magic to everything it touches especially coconut milk which lends its creamy goodness to curries and sweet tropical flavour to drinks. It is cropping up in everything from non-dairy ice creams to soups and stews, and for good reason. Coconut milk is packed with vitamins, iron, selenium, sodium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus. Coconut milk is also highly recommended for patients who are lactose intolerant, and can also be used as a vegan milk substitute in countless capacities. This ‘miracle liquid’ is made from grated and pressed brown coconut, simmered in water and then strained. But don’t confuse it with coconut water, which comes from the center of young green coconuts.
