I am about to stop drinking milk and eating cheese. The only thing I will struggle with is what to put in my coffee.

I have tried almond milk and it is not a good milk replacement. Coconut milk has a lot more fat in it so it would be a better. Just wondering if anyone drinks coffee/tea with it?

I went dairy free for a couple of months last fall and after a while of suffering without coffee, I finally tried it with coconut milk.

It was DELICIOUS! Rich and creamy. I put a lot of coconut milk in though, so it was definitely a calorie and fat rich beverage!

I did not like it in tea, so I just stuck to drinking coffee for that time.

When I opened the can of coconut, I would mix it all up so the super thick stuff that went to the top was well mixed in with the more watery stuff.

Give it a try and see what you think!

So I tried some today in my coffee and did not really like it. I used about 3-4 tablespoons of coconut milk with stevia.

Just wondering if you dilute it a bit with water or do anything to it?

Thanks for your imput!

Honestly, I'd just learn to like my coffee black or have tea with lemon. Coconut milk + tea sounds like a stomach-ache in a cup.

I like the new coconut milk beverages by So Delicious. It's just like milk, only it's made from coconut. Less fat than the coconut milk you find in a can, and it tastes great in coffee or tea! http://www.purelydecadent.com/produc...Bev_Plain.html

Yep. Canned coconut mild would separate any time I put in in hot or iced coffee. The new coconut milk beverage is creamy. Maybe creamier than half and half. YUM!

Have you tried hemp milk? We drink raw milk and I use raw cream and such, but most of my friends aren't willing to try raw dairy (fair enough) so I keep hemp milk around for coffee and tea and they love it! It's creamy and has a nice full flavor that stands up really well in coffee or tea. We also like the chocolate hemp milk as a treat. You can buy organic (or not), sweetened and unsweetened, and original, vanilla, and chocolate.

The So Delicious coconut milk was pretty good in coffee. Extremely rich though. Too rich for me. Hemp milk is too rich for me too. I just learned to drink coffee black. I also tried the So Delicious coconut milk ice cream and it's very good. It tasted almost exactly like regular ice cream to me.

I use hemp milk too. Vanilla hemp milk is awesome in coffee.

I am a big fan of coconut water and will always have a bottle of it at home bought from http://www.agecomfort.com/categories/Food-and-Snacks/. But I haven't tried using coconut milk as a substitution for normal milk. Sounds yummy. I am going to try this one soon.
