    Default Leftover coconut milk - ideas needed

    I've been cooking a lot of Thai food and often have some coconut milk left as I rarely use a full can.

    Apart from putting it in other dishes, like curries etc... do you have any bright ideas for using up left-over coconut milk?

    You can sustitue milk for some of the water when making rice. I just did this with jasmine rice a few days ago and then added lime zest and served it with jerk seitan. Its good with any caribbean style meal.
    I am going to have to try a coconut smoothie though!

    although, if you can get hold of gungo peas, they're better

    freeze in a small ziplock bag. In fridge goes rancid quickly and sooo fattening to slurp up regularly

    Use it for dessert after said Thai food:

    Thai Banana Sweet

    1/4 420g can coconut milk
    2tsp (or to taste) raw cane sugar
    1 banana


    Put the coconut milk and sugar into a saucepan, heat gently until warm.
    Slice the banana, add it to the saucepan, and cook until softened.
    Serve hot.

    Very rough translation of a recipe from Vegan cooking for one by Leah Leneman

    Don't hold me to it being salavatingly good though, never tried it
