Coconut milk on induction?

I was at a local health food store and found So Delicious unsweetened coconut milk. Only 1 carb per 8oz serving. I went ahead and got some cause I used to drink milk like crazy and its just hard to resist with my kiddo around.

I looked online when I got home and found a few post stating it was not good on induction but I found no solid reason why with the nutrition information I have seen on it. Can anyone point me in the right direction here?

I think it's because a coconut can be considered a nut, a seed and a fruit..all of which are not allowed.

An alternative, according to The New Atkins for a New You, is unsweetened almond milk. I love it. I normally get the unsweetened vanilla, but they also have original *which I use in savory dishes*, and chocolate. You can find it at Wal-mart.

It also has one carb per 8 oz serving. That's my best guess!

It is, but the new book allows it. It's on page 84 in the induction chapter. Coconut milk isn't mentioned, so I was giving you an alternative.

FYI, the so delicious milk is runny and watery. If you are going to incorporate coconut milk, the kind in a can (you won't see me recommend that often!) found in the Asian section of grocery stores is more rich. It even has cream that is the consistency of yogurt. Get the kind with coconut milk and guar gum and nothing else.

Thanks for the responses I added a little bit of sugar free chocolate syrup and its just like making chocolate milk with skim milk. its 2 carbs per 8oz serving so I limited myself to one glass a day and so far no negative effects.
Still showing moderate when I test and lost another pound. If I start to see any stalls ill back off. Thanks for the heads up Mysty I tried the almond milk before. I like almonds but for some reason when I drank a glass of the milk my tongue swelled up and my stomach started hurting really bad.

I don't think there is a "good" reason why coconut milk (unsweetened of course) wouldn't be induction friendly. It is low in carbs and has good fat. It's probably not listed as "approved" because it's rather unusual, and until recently was mainly used in certain "ethnic" dishes as a recipe ingredient, rather than a milk substitute. I'd say, as long as you continue to lose weight, enjoy it!
