|Homemade Coconut Milk
Coconut milk is the liquid extracted from ripe fresh coconuts. When a small amount of water is additionally added to the pressing process, the flavor is very delicious. It supplies substantial amounts of fat, the majority of which is in the form of medium-chain saturated fatty acids, namely the kind known as lauric acid. Coconut milk is a wonderful alternative to cow's milk for those who are lactose intolerant, because it is lactose free.
