Kokonati organic green curry coconut milk is made with milk from freshly grated coconut meat from mature kernels and ground warming spices; green chilli*, turmeric*, Ceylon cinnamon*, pepper*, curry leaves*, ginger*, lemongrass*. A bit of brownish liquid, which comes from the coconut shell paring, may naturally appear in some cans when the milk settles. This just goes to prove our product is 100% natural and not standardized by chemical processes. As we do not use preservatives, we do have to flash pasteurize the spiced milk to be able to preserve, package and ship it from our tropical shores to cooler countries with climates not suitable for growing coconuts. How else can we share such a wonderful superfood with the rest of the world!
gGreen curry coconut milk can be used as a dairy-free alternative, as a base for sauces, stews, and curries. Use Kokonati mildly spiced green curry coconut milk enriched with Ceylon cinnamon, turmeric, and spices, in cooking and baking. Flavor sauces, curries, noodles, rice, soups, and even spiced cocktails! Simmer boiled chickpeas, lentils, stir-fried vegetables (eg. eggplants, cauliflower, carrot, zucchini, green beans, broccoli), rice noodles, and tofu for a one-pot meal. Just add stir-fried vegetables, protein, and or lentils to make a quick one-pot meal. OR make it a main by adding rice and noodles also to it! For a quick one-pot spread, side or main, just simmer washed lentils with the green curry coconut milk until cooked through and mushy, then use as a filling, whip into a dip, or as a spread for sandwiches/wraps.
Contents may separate naturally. Before use, shake can or stir well to get an even texture.

Why coconut milk? Coconut milk is naturally rich in saturated fats, mainly short and medium-chain fatty acids (MCTs). MCTs are usually not stored by the body as fats. Instead, it is metabolized by the body to provide instant energy. Almost a quarter of a portion of coconut milk contains MCTs, mainly Lauric acid. Lauric acid is believed to boost the immune system and has been shown to promote brain development and bone health. This is why one of the richest natural sources of Lauric acid is mother’s milk. Next to mother’s milk, coconuts are the richest source of Lauric acid. “Lauric acid has microbial properties, so it can help protect against bacterial infection” notes Paul May, a professor at Bristol University in England. Lauric acid may also help in maintaining the elasticity of the blood vessels and in keeping them clean, which in turn could also lower the risk for conditions like, atherosclerosis and heart disease. Coconut trees grow in rich volcanic soil, contributing to the high mineral content of coconut. About 22% of the recommended daily allowance of iron ( for women, it is lower for men) can be absorbed from a recommended serving of Coconut milk. With such a high level of iron, consuming coconut milk regularly could naturally decrease iron deficiency disorders. Apart from the beneficial MCT’s & mineral content, coconut milk also contains several antioxidant compounds, which can provide protection against harmful free radicals and their damaging effects on the body cells and tissues. Coconut milk can promote a healthy gut by relieving gastric symptoms, stomach ulcers, and even acid reflux. And if all those benefits aren’t enough. Coconut milk can even help to relax nerves and muscles, control blood sugar levels, lower blood pressure and reduce joint inflammation. In addition to the benefits of consuming coconut milk, the spices in the green curry coconut milk can heal inflammation and ease digestion making it the perfect base for a healthy meal!
