Coconut Milk Worth Talking About

I am always in search of non-dairy milk options and am so often disappointed. Whole Foods had a lot of sample stations yesterday during the lunch hour and anyone that knows me knows I love samples, so I couldn’t resist trying everything.

I saw the set up of three different varieties of coconut milk by Pacific. I tried all three with low hopes and was pleasantly surprised with the blend that was sweetened with coconut water. To be honest, the other two tasted exactly how I thought they would taste, good but plain. The subtle, fresh sweetness of coconut water was the perfect amount of sweet without altering the flavor of coconut and also providing great hydration and a rich texture to the milk. I actually enjoyed a glass of this milk this morning by itself because it was so satisfying. I will definitely be using this milk in smoothies and as a creamer in coffee and tea. The added benefits of this coconut milk are that it is Carrageenan, dairy, soy, and gluten free! It also is a natural source of medium chain fatty acids, vitamin D, vitamin B12, and is a mere 60 calories per serving. I have finally found a coconut milk luscious enough to share with you. I would love to hear how you are all loving it, so please try it and report back.
