If the temperature is warm enough, your can contents may already be incorporated. Try shaking the can to see if you can here it sloshing around at all. In cooler temps, the coconut solids will separate from the water and you'll want to incorporate it all for use. The easiest thing to do is dump it all in a medium bowl and whisk or stir together.
-Add a few tablespoons to blender smoothies (adding healthy saturated fats like those in coconut milk help you absorb the vitamins and nutrients from any fruits and/or veggies blended into your smoothie).
-Make "ice" cubes to either add to smoothies or creamy Bacardi Coco drinks or melt in your coffee (a good way to use up leftovers before they go bad).
-Use as the creamy base in an ice cream batter, replacing dairy.
-Add to a chilled whipped cream dispenser (like iSi brand) and make dairy-free whipped cream (add sugar, vanilla, etc. to flavor if you like).
-Substitute for cream or milk in most recipes (I've even used it in quiche).
-Mix equal parts coconut milk and fruit jam/preserves to make a creamy & fruity topping for pancakes (heat it up if you like) or to spread on toast.
-Dump a can into a small pot as a base to a quick Thai soup. Add a can of crushed or diced tomatoes, slice in some mushrooms, add some Thai basil, and thrown in some cooked chicken chunks.
-Combine with other oils, lime juice, salt, pepper, seasonings, etc. to make your own salad dressings.
-Blend into soups or chili to make them a little creamy (I've even done this with salsa to get the creamy mouth feel of sour cream, although nothing gets close to the flavor of real dairy sour cream).
With the newer paleo/low carb crazes
I've seen people using coconut as a coffee creamer. I figured why not? In these cans the coconut milk comes separated in water/fat. When you don't shake it, you can pour the water in a glass (if you opened the watery part first) or simply scoop up the fatty deliciousness with a spoon. Put as much as you like in your coffee and you are "in"or "paleo".
I typically keep what's left in the refrigerator and make curry with it. I only use this when I run out of real whipping cream... Now I know what I'm making for dinner: chicken curry.
Oh - and yes of course this comes in a can. If you require the purity of a real coconut and extract the milk etcetera - be my guest. I witnessed my grandmother do that and I say, no thanks - I'll buy the can. I do thank her for the purity of her deserts (which contained large quantities of white sugar too).
1. It contains guar gum. This is a thickener used in watered-down coconut milk. All coconut milk contains water, but using guar gum masks how much water is added and gives the product a creamy look. Unfortunately, my palate is sensitive to guar gum from many years using it as a thickening alternative in cooking. I can taste and feel it in Thai's coconut milk. It leaves a slightly slimy feel in my mouth which ruins the meal for me.
2. There are no coconut solids in the can. It is a bright white, creamy-looking, slightly thick liquid. If you are looking for that thick coconut fat goodness to scoop out and whip or use in for recipes as a cream substitute, skip this brand.
3. The can is not BPH free.
4. It is organic.
5. Country of origin: Thailand. The Philippines also produces coconut milk, and which is the best differs by year and is a matter of taste.
6. Expiration date: 10/2016.
7. The taste is strong when compared to my usual brand, Natural Value. If you can handle guar gum, then it enhances the flavor of curry.
8. Every can arrived dented.
