A great product for baking with. I usually buy a different brand for coconut milk but as it was out of stock i decided to try these cans of merchant coconut milk. I am kind of mixed on my opinion as it depends of what you are using it for. I am paleo/ ketogenic (ways of eating) due to health reasons so i go through coconut milk really fast. These cans when opened have a thick creamy layer on the top which is brilliant for baking – this is coconut cream and is used in things like ice cream or as whipping cream. However i found that if you want the milk for making drinks with – it doesn’t seem to stay mixed. I would pour the can into a jug and whisk it up – the milk and water would combine but after a while it would separate again and when keeping in the fridge the top layer would go hard so you would then have hard bits floating in the milky water (it’s so hard you have to break it with a knife or spoon). I also tried it in my bulletproof coffee and found it was really weak tasting making my drink not nice. I tried making a paleo cheese cake with it (something that i’ve done before) but the again the creamy bit separated from the watery bit and i ended up with a disaster.Taste wise it’s great – no funny after taste or anything.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Excellent – shake well before opening.

Delicious and high quality, but i am yet to figure out the perfect temp to keep it at. If i open it from the pantry it is 50% solid. I heat the cans up by putting in a bowl of warm water and then use the milk to make chia pots.

  1. Be ok for cooking but for using like. Milk it’s very difficult as it has separated in the can and after mixing it back together it just separates again. But as i say for cooking it will be fine just not.

    Keeping texture consistency and doesn’t freeze in my fridge.
    1. Use this to stir fry with prawns and green peppers, and now you have a white prawn thai curry. The best coconut milk on the market hands down.

    Bought this to make rawveganavacadomouse. It turned out delicious, couldn’t even taste the avocado. Not sure it this is right, but it did seem very oily when i first open the tin. I put it in out first,as advised,.

    1. Unlike sainsburys own brand of coconut milk, this is separated, but sainsburys is not organic and this is, so i’d rather mix it up myself than have non-organic.
