Best source for coconut milk?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I am wanting to make coconut milk yogurt. I have just ordered the starter and do have some coco milk, but would like to find a good source to get in bulk. The local grocery sells it but it is always a hit or miss if they will carry it and it is expensive- I am hoping I can get a decent deal if I buy bulk and not have to worry about running to the store all the time to get it.

I was looking at some coconut cream to reconstitute from tropical traditions

or

coconut milk powder from wilderness family naturals (they are currently out of milk)

The authors of The Garden of Eating say they buy coconut milk in bulk and they list 2 sources.

1) Edward and Sons Trading Co http://www.edwardandsons.com

2) Thai Kitchen http://www.thaikitchen.com

HTH!

We either reconstitute the CCC from TT or in a pinch buy New Native (I think that's the brand?) or the OLD Thai Kitchen with the black lids. They changed and added a new emulsifier and the new lids are gold.

Can you post your coconut yogurt recipe? Thanks for the other links too. I was just going to search for a better way to buy coconut milk besides at the grocery store.

kallyn, thanks for the links the price from thai kitchen was cheaper than amazon, but not sure about the postage- however I was a little concerned with the additives. I am thinking I will go with the coconut cream and maybe some butter as well, I need an oil that can tolerate higher heat than the olive.

firefaery- thanks for the input, it is good to know ahead of time that the concentrate will work for the yogurt- I am guessing it has reconstitution info on the package.

2inAugust- here are the yogurt instructions- I had got this off of a coconut yogurt thread I belive firefaery had started
Basically. 2 cans coconut milk,
a thickener (agar agar, gelatin or something else of your choosing)
2 T. honey or maple syrup a bit of vanilla and a starter.
Heat milk, thickener and sweetener to 110. Add starter.
Stir in a dash of vanilla and incubate at 110 for 8-10 hours.

You can actually get a good deal on Amazon on the Thai Kitchen Coconut Milk... they have regular, light, and even organic. Shipping is free.

I make my own from fresh coconuts, that way I have raw fresh coconut cream. If you add a little lime juice to it, it will keep in the fridge for up to six weeks.

I noticed recently at Whole Foods that they have an organic coconut milk in their store brand 365. The price was pretty good compared to what I pay for other brands (that aren't even organic!). I haven't tasted it yet because they were out of the regular when I was there (only had light) but I want to try it. I think if you got a whole case they would give a discount, too!

what's a starter, and where can you buy it?
