Coconut Milk

Well...we're offering just that, so stick around!

For those of you who love this milk as much as we do, you know that any recipe made with coconut milk is very hard to pass up. Coconut milk is so satisfying that it doesn’t really matter if it’s prepared hot or cold. At any temperature, coconut milk is an amazing food.

It’s one of those foods that goes well with almost everything and can be eaten anytime (day or night).

That is why we are delighted to share some very special coconut milk recipes. Some are original, while others are not, but if you have never had the opportunity to enjoy coconut milk before, now is your chance!  

In case you're unaware, coconut milk comes from extracting the juice of coconut meat and is naturally sweet and light.  The consistency can be as fluid as regular milk or creamy like pudding. The more fluid it is, the more water has been added to lighten the fat content.

There are many benefits of coconut milk. One of the biggest reasons to consume this food is because of its extraordinary nutritional profile. Its profile is very balanced and complete and is often referred to as a functional food. Because of the quantity of micro and macro nutrients that it has, you could eat it as a meal in itself!

So, what are you waiting for?

What Some Of Our Customers Are Saying About Our Coconut Oil...

"I'm writing to let you know that I LOVE what your coconut oil does for my skin! As an aging female senior citizen, I noticed that my skin was becoming drier and flakier than it had ever been. The coconut oil has changed that completely. Without question my skin is MUCH smoother and has fewer wrinkles."

"Happy moisturizing to you all--I'm sure you'll enjoy the results!"


"Just a few days after I started taking the oil it made me feel more energized, my mood improved, it regulated my thyroid, and the taste makes it all worth while!"


"I am so excited having discovered the health benefits of coconut oil! It's easy to add to my hot food and I also add it to my hot drinks... I have noticed weight loss since I started, and also a huge difference in my health! Thank you, Kate, for introducing this to me! I know I'm doing something so good for my body!"
