Which coconut milk? (Day 33)

It seems yesterday’s walking around in Hyde Park’s Speakers’ Corner, Marble Arch and Edgware Road did my waistline some good. My weight stayed constant at 66.7kg but my Body Fat dropped 0.4% to 16.8%. My Body Water went up to 57.2% and my Body Muscle rose 0.3% to 43.3%.

Dunn's River Coconut Milk

Dunn's River Coconut Milk

During this detox I’ve tried a few brands of coconut milk. I’ve tried Dunn’s River Coconut Milk, Island Sun Coconut Milk and a third one the brand of which I can’t remember. I have been quite surprised in the variation of flavour and texture in the different brands. Dunn’s River Coconut Milk is by far the best from the three that I have so far tried. It is thick and creamy in texture and has a rich coconut taste to it. The other two were far more watery and just didn’t have a distinct enough coconut taste to them. If I had tried the other brands first, I would not have recommended coconut milk as a delicious alternative to cow’s milk. Ingredient’s wise Dunn’s River Coconut Milk is far purer too. It simply contains coconut meat and water only. The ingredients of the other two brands had all kinds of E numbers and other unnecessary additions that did nothing for the flavour of their products. The only plus point the other two brands had over Dunn’s River Coconut Milk is that you can heat them up without them curdling. But what’s the point if the heated coconut concoction lacks flavour?!

So if you do go out to try coconut milk I recommend trying a few varieties before making a decision if you like the milk of coconut or not. Let me know if you discover a brand of coconut milk that you particularly admire.
