Coconut belongs to the palm family and is endemic mainly to Polynesia and South Asian countries like Sri Lanka. The flesh or kernel of the coconut can be used not only as food, but also as a source of milk and oil. Coconut milk is a very popular ingredient in most South Asian dishes, giving our curries a rich, creamy, coconutty flavour.
Coconut milk can be used in desserts, sauces and in general cooking, as a healthier substitute to dairy products such as yoghurt and curd. In fact, it can even be used as a vegan alternative to dairy milk in smoothies and milkshakes! Since coconut milk does not contain lactose, it’s the perfect choice for individuals who are lactose intolerant. Coconut milk falls in the healthy category as it is full of micronutrients such as vitamins C, E, B1, B3, B5 and B6. It also contains a substantial amount of fibre, and minerals like iron, selenium, sodium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorous. The fats found in coconut milk build up the body’s immune system and help fight infection. Coconut milk is also known to be beneficial for heart health, and assists in weight loss as well.
