"My absolute FAVOURITE, I LOVE this stuff and I’ve used it so much since I got my hands on a jar. Who knew that making your own coconut milk could be so simple! It’s the easiest thing to add to recipes if a sauce needs thickening or if a dish needs just a tiny bit more oomph as it has a rich coconut aroma and flavour. With creamed coconut, you make as much or as little as you need which means there’s less waste; it’s more economical; and environmentally friendly, with less packaging to throw away." - Lucy

No need to ever buy canned coconut milk again (and end up throwing half away!) - make as much or as little coconut milk as needed. It’s also great for adding a creaminess to dishes.

How to use

With your jar of Creamed Coconut, it's natural for the coconut oil to separate from the coconut meat. The oil will solidify and sit on the top - if you look at the side of the jar, you can see this as white at the top and then the coconut meat shows as a creamy colour. The oil needs to be mixed in with the coconut meat to use - warm the jar (we stand ours in a bowl of hot water at 64C, for around 30 minutes; or in colder weather you could stand the jar on a warm radiator), then stir and mix it together. We do not recommend using a microwave to heat this product as it can burn.

This is particularly important if making coconut milk, to make sure it blends properly. For a delicious, all natural coconut milk simply blend Lucy Bee Creamed Coconut with room temperature or warm water, using more or less depending on the richness required.

It can also be stirred into casseroles and sauces; used as a dairy free creamy frosting for bakes and cakes; or simply use as a vegan spread.

Not recommended for frying or using in a microwave.

    FAQs

    1. Best Creamed Coconut recipes 

    Creamed Coconut can be used to make coconut milk or added to sauces for creaminess. It also works well in bakes such as:

    Orange and Creamed Coconut Cake

    Creamed Coconut Fudge Chocolate

    1. How to make coconut milk 

    Firstly, make sure any separated oil is mixed back into the creamed coconut (this will appear as white at the top of the jar – to mix in, warm the jar and stir into the creamed coconut). To make 200ml of coconut milk, use a high-speed blender and blend 40g Lucy Bee Creamed Coconut with 170ml lukewarm water. If you leave the milk to stand, shake before using.

    See this video How to Make Coconut Milk here https://www.lucybee.com/video-creamed-coconut-milk/ 

    1. What is Creamed Coconut? 

    Creamed Coconut is dried, shredded and pureed coconut flesh. It has a rich, creamy texture which can transform dishes.

    1. What do you do with Creamed Coconut? 

    Creamed Coconut can be used in numerous way: make coconut milk; use as a dairy free breakfast milk alternative; stir into soups for a rich creaminess; use when cooking grains such as porridge or rice; use in any recipe requiring coconut milk and you only need to make as much as needed, rather than opening a can and throwing half of it away; use as a butter replacement on toast; in bakes and cakes; and, of course, in curries!

    1. What’s the difference between creamed coconut and coconut milk? 

    Creamed coconut is dried and pureed coconut flesh.

    Coconut milk is made either by:

    • blending together coconut cream and water(or with ours, it's coconut water)
    • or soaking shredded coconut flesh in hot water. Coconut cream rises to the top and can be skimmed off. The liquid that’s left is then squeezed through a cheesecloth to make coconut milk.

    6. Can I use your Creamed Coconut to make coconut milk for my infant son with dairy allergies and does it contain the necessary nutrients as a replacement for milk, for a 1 year old?

    You can replicate coconut milk using our Creamed Coconut, room temperature water and a blender.

    In this particular instance (a one year old with dairy allergies), it’s worth noting that our Creamed Coconut is not fortified with any micronutrients (calcium, vitamin D, B12). So, if you were to use Lucy Bee Creamed Coconut as an alternative to a fortified milk, be aware that you would need to make sure these nutrients are available elsewhere in the diet.

    The great thing about our Creamed Coconut is that you can make the milk whenever you need it, and the exact amount required.

    If you store the creamed coconut milk in the fridge, the creamed coconut and the water will separate because it has no stabilisers in it. To use, simply shake or blitz it together again to combine.

    If using bought, pre-made coconut milk, it’s worth looking at the labelling of ingredients since a lot of companies use sugar(s) or fruit juices to sweeten their drinks as well – this is just something to be aware of.

    7. Does Lucy Bee Creamed Coconut contain any soya?

     Our producer confirms that our “Creamed Coconut does not contain soya nor any of its derivatives.  Soya, moreover, is not present or used in the same facility as the Creamed Coconut is produced."

    8. What is the white layer on the top of the Creamed Coconut?

    This is the naturally occurring oil which has solidified and separated. Please refer to 'How to Use' to see how to mix this back in before using the jar.

    9  What's the best way to remove the Creamed Coconut from the jar?

    Care needs to be observed when removing this from the glass jar. In cooler weather, the creamed coconut is more solid in the jar so it might be worth slightly warming the jar before trying to remove it. We tend to stand it in a bowl of hot water, about 64C, for 30 minutes to soften it and then make it easier to remove with a spoon.

    Please avoid using sharp intruments as these could cause the glass jar to break.

    This creamed ocout is in my opinin far superior to any other creamed coconut so easy to use and a cupboard staple

    Thank you Andrea! I agree, it's such a versatile product to have in the cupboard. I love adding to sauces! Many thanks for your review, Rian

    Anita V

    Fantastic Product. Big jar lasts a long time.

    Thanks for your review, Anita. I agree, the creamed coconut lasts a long time and is so versatile. I like adding to curries and soups for extra flavour. Thanks, Rian

    Tia C

    As always Lucy bee comes top. I actually don’t use this a lot but I made a huge order and wanted to try it. Lucy bee products always seem to be tastier and much more ‘real’ tasting.

    Hi Tia, thank you for your review! So pleased you decided to try the Creamed Coconut, it's such a useful tasty product. I like to add to my soups and casseroles to add a creamy flavour. We also have lots of recipes on lucybee.com. Thanks, Rian

    The taste is great and really good value for money when you compare it to canned stuff. Best of all it's 100% organic creamed coconut with no fillers or additives and it's fairtrade! Try and find a can with all of the above!

    Thank you for your review, it's great to know how much you enjoy using the Organic Creamed Coconut. I love to add to sauces, and stir into soup for creaminess. Thank you, Rian

    Elzbieta S

    This is a fantastic product that I would thoroughly recommend. Just very sad no longer available in Supermarkets to buy but great service from Lucy Bee direct so very happy!

    Hi Nicola, I know, it's such a shame that the supermarkets delisted this, it really is such a great product to have as a store cupboard go-to. It's ideal to stir into sauces for a creaminess and I even love taking a bit from the spoon to curb that sweet tooth! Petrina

    Helen S

    I love this in homemade soups to make them extra creamy , great to use , good price .

    Thank you for your review, Helen. I have to agree with you there, it really does makes soups creamier, it's great as well as it is such a versatile product. Daisy

    I absolutely love the coconut cream - such a great product. Brilliant quality and really good value. Love the lack of plastic packaging

    Hi Bryony, Thank you so much for this great review! We are so happy to hear that you like the coconut cream - it's such a useful product, and you'll never need to buy canned coconut milk again! Our Creamed Coconut from the Philippines is unsweetened, fresh, organic coconut kernel which has been dried and pureed and naturally contains some coconut oil. It is great to hear your thoughts on the packaging. We take pride in the packaging and delivery of your products and it is so important to us to do this in the most sustainable way possible. Thank you again for taking the time to share your review, we really appreciate it. Joel

    Very useful and convenient. Super flavour.

    Hi Kim, The great thing with this product is its versatility - you can blend it with water to make coconut milk, or stir a spoonful into sauces for an added creaminess. I even like this straight from the jar to curb that sweet craving! We don't advice frying with it or putting it in a microwave as this can burn it. As a natural product, it's not unusual for the naturally occurring coconut oil to separate and solidify and this sits on the top showing as a white colour (versus the creamed coconut which is a creamy colour). Before using this, you need to mix the oil back into the creamed coconut and we have videos on the product page showing how we warm this, making it easier to mix the oil back in. It's a great product and is a worthwhile kitchen store cupboard item. Petrina

    Lucy

    When this product was launched I had to try it, it lasts a long time and I add it in a lot of the meals I make. Have never bought other creamed coconuts in cans and never will. This product is such a kitchen staple!

    Thank you for sharing this Lucy. As you say, Creamed Coconut is a brilliant store cupboard staple and adds a delicious creaminess to sauces, as well as being good to use in sweet treats. I even love a teaspoon of it straight from the jar when those late afternoon sweet cravings come! If you have this at home, you never need to worry about running out of tinned coconut milk as you simply blend this with water and hey presto you have as much (or little) coconut milk as you need for your recipe, with no waste. Win win! Petrina

    My heritage means I cook with creamed coconut most days and upon reading how pure and sugar free Lucy Bee's product was, I decided to try. It's honestly a game changer - tastes much better, it's thicker than substandard versions so a little goes a long way. Smells delicious too!

    Hi Kayleigh, thank you for such a lovely review. Our Creamed Coconut is also #1 Ethical Best Buy in the UK for creamed coconuts, as well as being Raw, Organic and Fair Trade. Thank you again for your review. Daisy

    Love this and it gives the curries a great flavour and creamy texture

    Hi Kerry, thank you for your review. The Creamed Coconut is perfect as you can use as much, or as little as you need, without having to waste half a tin. If you need any recipe inspiration we have lots on www.lucybee.com - Daisy

    MARVELLOUS!

    Hi Marie, thank you for your review, and glad to hear that you like the creamed coconut! It has such a rich and creamy flavour and works so well in curries, baking and other recipes. It's also handy that instead of wasting half a tin of coconut milk, you can just replace the lid and store it in your cupboard. Daisy

    I have been using this product to make my own coconut milk for over a year, since seeing Lucy Bees video on how to do it. I cannot drink my coffee any other way now. I also use it in smoothies, and cooking, and I love how I know exactly what is in it. Never had any faults with the quality of this product in the time I have been ordering. Thoroughly recommend!

    Hi Karen, thank you for your brilliant review and recommendation for the creamed coconut. It is such a versatile product, and has so many uses as you said! Daisy

    Laurie M

    Delicious product. I warm it slightly, then use a knife to blend it (all creamed coconut separates on standing). I add a teaspon to my coffee every morning in place of milk or cream - yummy - and use in soups and curries. Wouldn't want to be without it.

    Thank you for sharing your brilliant review, Laurie. It's great reading the different ways people use our products! We have lots of recipes and tips on our website if you are ever looking for inspiration :) Hannah

    Matthew M

    This stuff is amazing! I originally bought it for a soap ingredient, but after tasting it - melt on the tongue heaven - I use it in anything I can! My favourite is my BANANA SHAKE RECIPE: 1 banana pureed in blender with a little cow's or Lucy Bee's Coconut Milk - or half and half. Then 1/4-1/2 tsp Lucy Bee's Chai Blend, 2-3 tbsp on Lucy Bee's Coconut Cream (warmed up with a little milk until it's quite fluid) then topped up with milk and blended some more. Best served if chilled in freezer for an hour before drinking: a super-creamy ice-cream-like banana shake you won't forget!

    Thank you for sharing, Matthew. It's great to hear that you love our Creamed Coconut and are using it in anything you can! Wow - that sounds like a delicious recipe!

    We eat so much curry in this house - pre-made by my mum. Some of these are too hot for my son to eat... not an issue. Grab my Lucy Bee Raw Creamed Coconut; chuck a load in the pot and cook it away as the originally made curry re-heats. Great product. Cannot live without ... !!!

    Hi Lindy, Creamed Coconut can be used in all sorts of ways! Sweet, savoury and even to drink! We have lots of tips and inspiration on our website if you are ever looking for any.
