Coconut milk is the highlight of many cuisines, particularly in tropical and sub-tropical dishes. Not only is it a fabulous alternative to dairy, it gives dishes (and drinks!) a rich creamy taste like no other. Here we have selected for you 10 of creamiest coconut milk recipes to try at home! A word of caution – if you elect for fresh coconut milk, be aware that it turns quickly and should be used the same day as pressing. Should you opt for the canned variety, it needs to be used within a few days of opening as it will turn rancid quickly.
