I can’t tell you how excited I’ve been to put this roundup together. You guys already know how real my love is for all things curry, and I recently realized how frequently I go through cans of coconut for both sweet and savory recipes. Coconut milk is the true MVP of my pantry, and with these 23 delicious recipes I promise it will be yours, too.
What is coconut milk used for?
The best part about cooking and baking with coconut milk is that you can use it almost all of the ways you’d use a regular dairy milk or your favorite nut milk. It’s dairy free, slightly thicker, and more flavorful than regular nut milks, which means it’s perfect for adding a natural sweetness to simple recipes like my almond flour pancakes and the caramel in this incredible peach crisp.
What is the best coconut milk for cooking and baking?
I usually use a lite can of coconut milk when I’m cooking things like curries, soups, and savory sauces, as well as when I use a dairy free milk in my baked goods. You can absolutely use a full fat coconut milk to add an even creamier texture to your dish – it’s all up to you! Full fat coconut milk is delicious when added to coffee, and even whips into creams.
This week I challenge you to pick up a can (or 10) of coconut milk and try out these sweet & savory recipes. From cozy soups to a 24K gold latte that will make your morning, these recipes will be ones to make again and again. Enjoy, xoxo!
If you make any of these coconut milk recipes, be sure to leave a comment and let me know how you liked it! I’d love to see your creations, too, so share a photo on Instagram with #AmbitiousKitchen or in our Facebook Group. xo
