BTD Forums  /  Cook Right 4 Your Type  /  Amazing coconut milk substitute (w/ recipe)!!!!
Posted by: sierradawn, Thursday, March 29, 2007, 12:09am
For all you BTDers out there who cannot have coconut milk or dairy of any kind:

I don't know what you all do to substitute coconut milk, but because I was very big into raw foods before I started the BTD, I was able to come up with this since in the raw food cuisine, nut milk and creams were used to imitate milk:

1 cup macadamia nuts
2 cups water
1 TB agave nectar or vegetable glycerine
dash of sea salt

Blend on high until well-blended
Add more water/salt/sweetener to taste.

Though it doesn't taste exactly like coconut milk, it has nearly the same consistency and flavor, even! This is perfect for those coconut curry dishes that call for the coconut milk.

Does it whip? It just may from the looks of your recipe.
Nothing beats vegan creampuffs... ;)

I don't think it can foam the same way as cream but you could add a little less water to make it a tad thicker. I suppose you COULD try to whip it but I don't have a beater, so I don't know.

Good luck!

I did, thought it's actually with another recipe called Red Lamb Curry. I will add it separately.

I will have to try this, a good friend of mine told me of using coconut milk in black bean soup.  So, this recipe here sounds interesting to me.

Just want to add that RAW, unsalted macadamia nuts should be used.

Huge Thai food fan IN:

Brilliant!  I love, love, love Thai curries and I will have to try making one at home using your "faux co" milk instead of coconut milk itself.

Wu HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!

Curries with coconut milk are the best, the BEST, I tell you!  But now, with the advent of "Faux Co", I think we may have found something even better, as compliance is always preferable to non.

Wu HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU again!

Huge Thai food fan OUT!
