Organic Turmeric Coconut Milk
Supporting rural livelihoods
Kokonati organic turmeric coconut milk is made with milk from freshly grated coconut meat from mature kernels and ground warming spices; turmeric, Ceylon cinnamon, pepper, ginger, virgin coconut oil and nectar. 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!
Turmeric coconut milk can be used as a dairy-free alternative, as a base for sauces, stews, and curries. 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! Great in smoothies and even a chilled spicy cocktail. Use as vegan milk for porridge and soothing lattes. Or sip a cup of warmed golden coconut milk as is! Use SAVOURY or SWEET. For a quick one-pot spread, side or main, just simmer washed lentils with the turmeric 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. In cold weather (under 22 Deg C) place the can in a warm water bath for a few minutes and then shake well before opening. If needed strain through a sieve for extra free flow, using a spatula to force through any unmelted coconut milk fat through the sieve. A little elbow grease is needed to use this 100% natural product!
Aroma and taste is freshly coconut with mild spice notes of ceylon cinnamon, turmeric, black pepper and ginger. Depending on the harvest and season every batch of turmeric milk can vary in color and to a minor degree in taste as it is a natural cottage-industry product that does not use any chemical refining, additives, or preservatives to standardize the product like with large-scale commercially standardized coconut milk.
