Why You’ll Love Organic Coconut Milk

In recent years, many people have gone crazy for coconut milk—and it appears to be for good reason. As a substitute for dairy, coconut milk is lactose-free, which allows the millions with allergies or those following a vegan diet the chance to enjoy an alternative that has a very similar texture.

Because it’s plant derived, coconut milk also has greater nutritional value than the traditional options derived from animals. It’s richer in niacin, with 1.8 milligrams per cup compared to the 0.23 milligrams in dairy milk. That’s important because niacin (a.k.a. vitamin B3) helps metabolize the nutrients found in food. Coconut milk also has greater concentrations of iron (3.9 milligrams per cup versus 0.1 milligrams), which eases the delivery of oxygen to body tissues and enables cells to function every day.

But not all coconut milk is created equal; the healthiest versions are organically made and don’t have any sugar or additives. In addition to those qualifiers, Native Forest’s Unsweetened Organic Coconut Milk is also:

  • Gluten-free
  • Kosher
  • Non-GMO
  • Vegan

So, although coconut milk once got a bad rap for its high fat and caloric content, more and more health experts now agree that good fats are part of a healthy diet. That means coconut milk is finally getting the recognition it deserves as a star player in a wholesome, satisfying diet.

The health benefits of coconut milk

With natural reserves of vitamins C, E, B1, B3, B5, and B6, as well as minerals such as selenium, iron, phosphorus, magnesium, and calcium, the tropical nut has a number of health-promoting properties that may come as a surprise.

Heart health

Two important components of coconut milk are lauric acid and magnesium. Both have been found to reduce cholesterol levels and regulate blood pressure. Magnesium in particular keeps the heart’s rhythm in check.

Weight control

Coconuts are a great source of medium chain triglycerides (the “good” fats), which not only stimulate fat burning but also leave a full feeling that can help cut down on cravings and overeating throughout the day. Those same fatty acids (and B vitamins) also provide the energy the body needs for increased physical output and are essential for tissue repair that can build muscle.

Hydration

Like coconut water, coconut milk contains electrolytes and other essential minerals that help reduce the risk for dehydration, especially when consumed on a hot day, while fighting an illness, or after a rigorous workout.

Better digestion

While the electrolytes in coconut milk can help with bouts of diarrhea, a well-hydrated tract also keeps things flowing, lessening the chance for constipation as well as thinning the mucus that can lead to ulcers.

Balanced blood sugars

When used as a sweetener instead of sugar, coconut milk can help lessen blood sugar spikes that, over time, could contribute to diabetes. That’s because the good fat content is usable energy that reaches the bloodstream in a more efficient manner.

How coconut milk is made

One of the wonderful things about coconut milk is that the process of creating it is a straightforward one that honors its natural purity. Here’s how it’s done: Fresh, ripe coconut flesh is cut from the outer shell and is then grated and soaked in hot water. Eventually, residual cream will rise to the top. This liquid is then forced through a cheesecloth or other fine straining method to ultimately arrive at the final product.

Ways to cook with coconut milk

Coconut milk has been a dietary staple throughout the world for centuries thanks to its natural creaminess and versatile flavor that lends well to a variety of cooking applications. Thai culture regularly incorporates the liquid into sauces, curries, and sweet rice while Brazilians use it for seafood stews and decadent desserts.

If you're not used to cooking with coconut milk and are looking for a place to start, try these easy ideas:

  • Smoothie base (this coconut banana blend is a surefire hit)
  • Creamy soup stock
  • Alternative sweetener (great for desserts like these homemade Kit Kat Bars)
  • Tasty dipping sauces
  • Ice cream and pudding creations (here’s a frozen treat you can even eat for breakfast; just substitute the almond milk with coconut milk)
  • Creative cocktails (mix vodka, simple syrup, and cinnamon for a drink that tastes like a liquid cookie)
  • Cheese and whipped cream
  • Coffee creamer (try this super easy recipe!)

Coconut milk for skin and hair

In addition to its culinary and nutritional assets, coconut milk triples as a beauty treatment. It’s a multipurpose workhorse that can add suppleness and strength to skin and hair.

Cleansing for skin

Coconut milk is a rich source of antioxidants, which do wonders in battling those damaging free radicals that are major contributors to wrinkles. In addition to fighting fine lines, coconut milk is also a natural cleansing agent that’s great for washing your face. Its soft, fatty properties naturally remove makeup, dirt, and oil from pores without drying them out, and they also gently exfoliate, removing the dead cells that can otherwise pile up and cause acne.

Try this simple, straightforward recipe for a coconut milk cleanser that will do the trick.

Conditioning for hair

Here’s another reason to stock coconut milk in your bathroom vanity: It can add moisture to your hair. The high concentration of proteins, fats, and vitamin E replenishes strands from root to tip, which is a great help for detangling, preventing split ends, and even promoting hair growth.

Make an easy conditioning mask by mixing 4 oz. of coconut milk with 2 teaspoons honey and a few drops of your favorite essential oil. Apply to hair and leave on for at least 20 minutes before rinsing.

Reviews For Organic Coconut Milk

Based on 128 Reviews

Tasty & natural

I purchased a few cans of coconut milk for holiday baking in November. I gave a 4 stars because as soon as I open each can, the liquid and the white fat ( I assume it is the coconut solid oil) are separated. Shaking the can won't make it smooth and creamy; the low heat will combine it well. However, the thickness of the product, and tastiness are well worth the money I've paid for each can.

- Mama Williams

coconut milk

Very creamy and tasty addition to my organic coffee .

- BARBARA

organic coconut milk

very creamy and wonderful taste. I will buy this again and again.

- Felecia

Perfection

Rich, thick, full of coconut fat. Perfect for whipping, cooking, or just adding to coffee for the best latte ever.

- Suzanne

Native Forest Canned Coconut Milk

Really like this product. Use it in my coffee and it has a rich flavor and cappuccino consistency. Sometimes it is thicker than other times and not sure if I'm crazy about that. There are no BPA in this product which is especially important to me. The price is great.

- Ruth

Not so great

First time trying coconut milk and I have to say it is not at all like regular milk... When I opened the can the contents were so separated that I had to throw in the blender to mix everything back up again. It was also very oily. I made a custard and it left a tick crust on the surface that tastes horrible.

- Joselyn

Love coconut milk & frozen fruit in my breakfast shake

This coconut milk makes the creamiest shakes, esp with frozen fruit. My favorite is with chocolate protein powder and frozen strawberries. It's like having chocolate mousse for breakfast!

- Laura

Organic Coconut Milk

I absolutely LOVE this coconut milk! I want to fill my fridge with it, and I would never even miss cow milk! I baked a small single serve microwave "cake" with it, and it was perfect, But the real test was using it my coffee! I've never had better coffee in my life! I sweetened it with a little Date Sugar (from thrive) and lightened, and then some with the coconut milk, which I hid (all for ME!) in a new unmarked squeeze bottle which I hid in the back of my fridge. It was enough to give me two big mugs of very light coffee for over a week, I can't wait to make my next order, because I have BIG plans for this stuff. Not just coffee and a cupcake!! It is wonderful!

- helen

Delicious!

Very pure/natural - nothing questionable inside, plus no BPA. Smells, tastes, and feels wonderful...

- Shelly

I'm coo-coo for coconuts!

I am a coconut fanatic. I love everything that smells, tastes and looks like coconut. This is my favorite brand of coconut milk. Thick, coconut-y, delicious. I love that the cans are lined and BPA free. It does separate a lot, but a quick second in the blender does the trick. This is my go-to for curries and sauces. Makes great smoothies too.

- Colleen

Love these

Always on my list , great for making paleo/ gf Naan . Then I dilute the rest and save in a mason jar

- Jesenia

Better than I thought!

I wanted to try coconut milk for some recipes and this was better than anticipated. It tasted do fresh and have a great consistency. The flavor is sweet and mellow. This brand was a good find too.

Organic coconut milk. Native Forest

5 star. I think it is an excellent product. I love it

- Margaret

Coconut milk

Have not used yet.

- Gerry

My favorite by far!

I buy this brand because it has a rich creamy texture. I wish I could get this without the added organic guar gum but for my use I'll take this over the grittiness of other brands. Great for soups and smoothies.

- Sandy

Milk

I hope to get this free sample.

- Tpamala nortonhrive

Coconut-like Clouds of Creamy Goodness!

This coconut milk exceeds all others. If your dessert recipe requires coconut milk, this brand is sure to deliver the depth of flavor and creaminess that you'd expect from a mouth watering treat! Products like these makes being vegan a breeze.

- Renee

excellent flavor

Fantastic and delicious

- Lucy

Organic coconut milk

I made a cortadito (which is basically Cuban coffee and milk), since I don't drink cow's milk I tried it with the coconut milk. It was yummy! Gave it to my brother and mother and they liked it.

- Maria

Fantastic

I would buy that product over and over again. Very good especially to make coconut ices.

The Real Deal

Not a real taste treat but wholesome food. I mix mine with some Almond Milk for better flavor and consistency.

- Dan

THE best.

I have tried every coconut milk on the market and this is the best...and it comes in a BPA-free can. Large amount of coconut cream, separates fairly quickly in the fridge.

- Tara

Coconut Milk

Haven't used yet, but will soon.

- Cyndi

the best

This is the best brand of coconut milk I have found.. Some of the others skimp on the creamy part of the milk but the Native Forest Organic brand definetlyu has more of the creamy stuff than any other brand I've tried and the coated can helps keep the metal away from the milk so it always tastes great.

- Terese

Coconut Milk

I've tried a number of various coconut milk options over the past year as we do a number of smoothies with this product. The quality and taste are great and you can tell the quality difference in this compared to many other Thai options.

- Jim

Smooth tapioca pudding

First time user. I bought mine in Wegmans, a large grocery chain. There was a solid amount at the top and liquid underneath. It blended together. Used part dairy and classic coconutIt milk. It made creamy delicious pudding. Even my pot cleaned up easier! This is a keeper for me.

- Carol

Organic Coconut Milk

I had no idea this was the consistency of lard...need to understand how to incorporate it into my home made yogurt

- Judy Goetz

Organic coconut milk

I had no idea the consistency would be like lard with a bit of water on the bottom. I wanted to use it with making my yogurt. Not sure how to use it now, I still have three cans unopened.

- Judy Goetz

Not Happy at all!!!

On opening the can, the milk came out clumpy, lump and spoiled. Could not use it all. Will not order again.
:(

- Desiree

Native Forest Organic Coconut Milk

Thick like butter, very hard to mix, so taste is terrible!

- Anthony Gonzales

Great Price

Have bought this in my local grocery store. Purchased from Thrive for a better price. Delicious! Read the label, far less ingredients than cartoned coconut milk in the grocery store.

- Malinda

Not sure it this is typical

when I opened these cans, it was solid at the top, and the water at the bottom. I had to blend it in a blender to get a milk. I am not sure if this is typical for organic coconut milk. Taste was good.

- Deana

Coconut milk

This is my favorite.

- Pansy

Native Forest Unsweetened Coconut Milk Classic

I buy item this all the time so I know it really well. I've noticed that when I pay the premium price for it, say $3.19/can, I get a dense, smooth coconut fat with lots of liquid underneath that top layer. Yet, when I pay any discounted prices, the quality is much less. The last cans I ordered were not well blended and were watered down a bit, even after I blended them and stored them in the fridge a bit. I've noticed this same issue when I buy it in stores for less that full retail. The product is sold under the same name but it is not the same product. Just thought you should know.

- Gayla

A STAPLE IN MY HOUSE

Love this coconut milk hot chocolate and golden milk, for dairy free cream soups and sauces, in baking, you name it!

- Janet

High quality!

Glad it's organic. Use this as a kitchen staple for dishes like Thai chicken soup, curries, etc. Delicious!

- Kelly

Best Coconut Milk

I have tried many brands of coconut milk, and this is the best I've had. There is more than 60% of coconut solids. You must empty the can into a container and remix the solids and water. Most brands are mostly water and you can pour right from the can. The flavor is excellent. I won't buy any other brand now that I've tried Native Forest Organic Coconut milk.

- Mike

Coconut Milk

Does this coconut milk come sweeten all I see in unsweeten?

I began looking for recipes to use this in, it's that delicious and nutritious.

- Dahana

Not sure

This product solidified to a putty consistency. Very little liquid in the bottom. I put it. In a smoothly, but not sure if I would buy it again.

- Mary

Not sure

When I received this I shook the can and there was no liquid noise. When I opened it, it had solidified. It kinda resembled putty. I read up on it and when exposed to cold temps it does solidify. I used it just not sure if I'd buy it again.

- Mary

Great value

Great value for a pantry staple.

- Eunora

saving for future use

I plan to use it in a couple of recipes-but it's been too warm lately to do any baking; however after shaking the can i can tell it's pretty thick and gives me lots of possibilities.

- Debbie

Solid!

I don't think I've ever used solid coconut milk before. There was liquid on the bottom, but had to dig through the solid portion on the top and it was very difficult emulsifying it all together.

- Nancy

Excellent product and quality

My wife uses coconut milk in many of her dishes and she loved this product. Excellent quality, price and fast delivery.

I love this milk. It is so creamy and makes great coconut kefir!

- Bettyworth

delicious and BPA free!

This is the best canned coconut milk I've tasted, and it's organic and BPA free. It's also the best price I've found. Win-win-win!

- Erin

Never w/o at least 2 cans in the cupboard

I make sure I always have a can n the refrigerator and spare can in the cupboard. It's the best I've found and I've used a lot over the years. The chilled cream whips up perfectly and can't come close to that fake whip cream you get at the store. BPA free cans is also a HUGE plus. Get it, you'll never go back to another brand!

- Pamela

Great for soups!

This is my favorite coconut milk to use in my soups if I want a non-dairy version for my husband. It is also BPA free! The price is awesome too!

- Lynn

Love this stuff!

As a recent convert to the benefits of coconut, I have tried many versions of coconut milk and this is by far the best! Thick and delicious, I add it to everything I can - cereal, smoothies, shakes and more. You can't go wrong with this one!

- Dhanna

organic coconut milk

I use it when making my pumpkin pie; I only wish it did not come from Thiland. They have a problem with human trafficing with their shrimp; concerned they do the same with all the products that come from Thiland

I have trouble finding organic in my town so I was looking for an alternative. I have found it! Now stay stocked up with this coconut milk and organic almond milk and make my own half-and-half beverage for coffee, cereal, whatever!

- Victoria

Love it. Used to make smoothies, and creamed soups.

- joy

Wonderful

For Indians, there are many uses for this wonderful product. I love it.

- Janak

Good

This is a good canned coconut, but I think Thai Kitchen's Organic canned coconut milk has a better, smoother taste. Also available at Thrive. Only thing is Thai Kitchen is not labeled as Non-GMO.

- Kristen

The BEST

I love coconut milk and have tried many brands, this is by far the BEST coconut milk I have ever used. I love this stuff!

- Rachel

NOT A DENT AND PURE COCONUT MILK

I ordered 5 cans and each can was perfectly wrapped and packed. Not one dent as another woman stated. This is fantastic coconut milk at a great price. I am so pleased and my smoothies thank you too!

- Janet

Great price!

From what I've used so far, I am really excited about this product! I've made a couple batches of red curry and because it seems to be half fat, it made the curry beyond delicious! I usually go through a can a week and given that it's about a dollar less than my local grocery store I plan on buying plenty of these!

- Sheila

So Creamy!

My son is lactose-intolerant, so we've had to become a bit creative with our cooking. A friend suggested Coconut Milk for treats like ice cream and milk shakes, as well as sauces. We tried out several brands; some were too watery, and others separated when you poured them out.

We initially just bought 2 cans of this one, and almost immediately bought 6 more! It is creamy throughout, and does not separate. I've even managed to make whipped cream with it after refrigerating the Coconut milk for a day or so! We've been using it for about 6 months now and LOVE it.

- Alfonso A.

By far my favorite!

This is by far my favorite coconut milk. It's creamy, delicious, and a great organic replacement for soymilk. The rich texture is so yummy, I love it! I've been substituting it into some of my recipes to experiment with healthier snacks and desserts and I was so happy to still get those decadent flavors and textures. I used to get it from the healthy foods store all the way across town, but the price here is a little better and it's easier to have it delivered. Thanks Thrive Market!

- Tonya

I Still Love This!

I have been a fan of Native Forest Coconut Milk for quite some time now. It has always been so rich and creamy and an excellent addition to my curries and Caribbean rice and beans.

However, recently I have noticed the consistency to have decreased to a more watery substance. The taste is still as delicious but serves better on my cereals or as creamer to my coffee.

And yet, the most important factors remain the same to fit my dietary needs...organic, gluten free and non-GMO. Still a fan!

- Zachary Nelson

Healthy Cooking/Smoothie Essential

Coconut Milk can be used in all kinds of cooking! When making my own curry, I use this milk every time. It makes more sense to make my own rather than buying prepackaged sauces. Sometimes I even us it in my morning smoothies!

- Danielle Bishop

very creamy

I cook with Coconut milk a good bit and this one is great. very creamy texture and excellent flavor.

- Jane

Best

We put the cream that rises to the top in our coffee and the remaining water in our smoothies.

- Al

Damaged

I love this coconut milk and use it all the time. I purchased 6 cans. EVERY can I received was severely dented. The damage was not caused by shipping as everything was well wrapped and there was no damage to the box. I would have never put one of these cans in my cart at a store. These cans belonged in the discount bin, not worth the savings!

- Leann

The Best

This is the best canned coconut milk out there, bar none. Love it in my coffee and the cream can be whipped to make the most amazing dessert topping!

- Deb

Used to love till guar gum arrived

This was my fave brand until I noticed--or until they added, not sure which--guar gum. Boo hiss.

- Anna Marie

Pleasantly Surprised!

When I ordered this coconut milk, I really didn't know what to expect. My sister had told me that she uses coconut milk in her coffee so when I went to look for some in the store, I looked in the dairy case with the regular milks and the non-dairy milks. The coconut milk in the dairy case has a bunch of other junk that I surely did not want to have in my body, so I just gave up on it until my dietician showed me this website and this coconut milk. I love it! It's so smooth and creamy and does wonders for my recipes. I was concerned that I would not be able to use it up within the recommended four days, so I checked on line and found that you can freeze it. I put some in a couple of small containers and froze for future use. Haven't tried it in my coffee yet, but I plan to as soon as I finish my half & half. I highly recommend this coconut milk.

- Bonnie

Good Coconut Milk

I have had an issue with cans coming dented, but I use it quickly enough it isn't a huge problem. This is less of an issue to me simply because the cans are BPA free. I also don't mind so much because it tastes amazing in everything I use it for. It is sweet and savory and makes my curries and desserts alike taste wonderful. I will definitely be getting more of this as soon as it's back in stock! I am actually a little sad to see it's out of stock currently....

- Sarah

Favorite Brand of Coconut Milk

This is my absolute favorite brand of Coconut Oil. It is great in coffee and it brings life to my curries. I like that it is a healthy alternative to evaporated milk or cream and still tastes like I'm indulging myself!

- Sarina M.

Great in Smoothies

This Coconut milk is absolutely wonderful in smoothies and healthier than some of the alternatives. The coconut milk blends well with the fruits and veggies I use and adds a flavor that makes it naturally sweet. I really enjoy it!

- Scotty P.

Dented cans are a problem

I've had a couple of cans that came in dented, which wasn't great. The milk is good, though and I mostly use it to flavor my protein shake which is quite bland.

But opening dented cans can be an adventure. It's either a problem at the manufacturing end or at the delivery, but I'm hoping it won't keep happening.

- Jock Norris

Health cans, great taste

First off, I'm really liking the fact that this coconut milk comes in BPA free cans. I've been waging a mini war with one of the manufacturers of my baby's bottles who lied about not using BPA.

Second, the milk is great, light and aromatic, with just the right amount of texture. It's great in smoothies or for sauces. It makes them rich without adding a load of calories.

- Jelena N.

Thai dishes come alive

I'm a big fan of Thai food, so coconut milk is a must. Whether it's coconut shrimp, Thai chicken curry or even green curry, this milk works really well.

It's smooth and clear, without tasting thick or cloying. It's pure coconut milk with nothing added. I love how healthy it is compared to soy milk.

- J. Narva

Like on a tropical island

When I was in Hawaii, I drank pure coconut milk right from the husk. It was so good, lightly sweet, pure and clean tasting

This canned milk is exactly like what I drank on the island. It's not too sweet, but it has a fantastic taste. I don't use it much for cooking to tell the truth. I use it in tea and chill it for a refreshing drink.

- Joele

Number one brand

I've used other coconut milks, but Native Forest is at the top. The milk is pure, no additives, very little sugar and naturally extracted.

I actually use it a lot to cream my coffee and as thickener for my smoothies. It's also great when I'm making my version of low-cal Thai curry.

- Jon Morton

My milk replacement

This stuff completely replaces milk in my kitchen. I use it in my smoothies, hot chocolate and even in my morning coffee. I use it to make pudding and custard. It works great in cream of wheat. It gives everything a delicious, creamy and smooth texture and taste.

I am so glad that Thrive Market carries this brand of coconut milk, and other coconut products.

- Rick Tindle

Thai cooking at it's best

This stuff is magnificent in Thai dishes. I love using it and it gives everything a nice creamy texture and a lovely hint of coconut flavor.

While it has many uses, I cook with it more than anything. From Thai Ginger Chicken to Spicy Coconut Noodles, this coconut milk can do it all. Don't let you pantry run out!

Great in the kitchen

The only thing I don't like about this stuff is that once it's open you have 4 days to get it used up. Sometimes in my busy life that just doesn't happen.

I love to use coconut milk for many things, from smoothies to baking. I use it in any desserts I can imagine. It adds wonderful flavor to banana nut bread and muffins.

I also love using it in custards and homemade ice cream. So delicious!

Baking done Right

I really like Native Forest Coconut Milk . I use it to replace heavy cream and also evaporated in my recipes and I think that it is the key to creamier pies and fluffier breads and muffins. (Cakes too!)

I only gave it four stars because it is a little runnier than other coconut milk products, and I prefer my coconut milk thicker, but the flavor of this milk can't be beat. I also didn't like that they had guar gum in it, it seemed a little unnecessary and I would prefer an additive free milk.

Other than those two things, this milk comes in BPA free cans and tastes wonderful making it a great option still and at only $2.35 through Thrive, it is much more affordable than other places I've purchased it, such as Amazon.

BPA-Free!

A friend recently educated me about the dangers of BPA in cans, and I must admit that I'm appalled at how many things I had been using that had BPA in the cans. I switched over this to coconut milk because they don't use BPA in their cans. I use it in my curry most of the time, and since switching, I've noticed that my curry doesn't feel nearly as thick as it used to. I wish this coconut milk was a bit thicker to give me that nice, creamy taste.

Best in smoothies

I have used this coconut milk for years. I had some disappointments, like many fans when they had an alternate supplier, but now they remain excellent. I use it in cooking sometimes, but I far prefer classic coconut milk in my smoothies.

They add a richness to smoothies, and many health benefits too.

Now my only hope is that they'll opt to use something other than cans in the future, although I am glad they are BPA free.

an excellent choice for preparing Caribbean dishes.

It’s an excellent choice for preparing Caribbean dishes. It is creamy, BPA free and organic. I sometimes use it in my morning smoothies and it gives it a tropical flavor. I found no problems with my order and received it in good conditions. You have to use it in a very short time because otherwise it goes bad.

Great alternative for smoothies

I am a smoothie addict and I am always looking for new, healthy things to add into my smoothies. I like a lot of fruit in them, and that means I have to add in something liquid to make the blender happy.

I don't like using regular milk in my smoothies (it gives me gas). I have tried soy milk (not a fan of the taste) and almond milk (too strong for some fruit blends). I like this coconut milk in them, it's just right. However, I don't always stick with this particular brand.

Best. Coconut Milk. Ever.

This stuff is fantastic. Organic, BPA-free, and very, very thick and creamy with a mild flavor. I've used it in DIY personal care products (shampoo), Tom Kha Gai (soup), curry, and smoothies so far, and it's the best I've ever had by far.

Best brand

Best brand of coconut milk! It has a great taste that's better than other brands, and it's non-GMO. I use it in my coffee, smoothies and curries.
