So, we all know by now that vegans, paleos, and the lactose intolerant can often turn to coconut milk to replace its dairy counterpart. But did you know that you can also buy condensed coconut milk?
The main difference between condensed, or canned, coconut milk and the carton variety is water. Lots and lots of water.
Condensed coconut milk is crafted from the shredded flesh of mature brown coconuts. It’s mixed in with a little bit of water, but not nearly as much as the carton variety of coconut milk. The dairy milk-substitute requires more water to be palatable; a recipe that calls for condensed coconut milk will break up the flavor in place of the water.
