Canned Coconut Milk - need ideas...

I made a recipe tonight that called for 2 tablespoons of coconut milk. Now I have just about the whole can left. Any suggestions on what I can do with it?
(I can't use any of the flour mixes that are posted on the boards, or carb quick, grains, fruit, etc.)

I put it in my coffee and shakes and smoothies.

Once I open a can I put it in a glass bottle (or jar, but a jar is messier) and add vanilla DaVincis. Keep it in the fridge to have ready-to-go, non-dairy, low carb creamer.

I also add it to protein shakes and/or smoothies for a little vanilla creaminess and coconut oil healthiness.

Freeze in ice cube tray, store in baggie in freezer.
Too bad you said no fruit. The brand I use gets really thick in fridge, almost like clotted cream, love a glop over berries or 1MM.

Moqueca – Brazilian Fish Stew. Seriously.so.good. Google it, I use the recipe from the Simply Recipes site. I have made it with both white fish and prawns or both! It's devine. Dont skimp on the seasonings or lime juice.

Sounds good. I don't drink coffee though.

I know. about the fruit, too. Your ice cube tray idea is good!

I also put it in cream of ______ soups. I try to stay away from dairy and the coco milk gives soups that creamy texture.

Thanks! Does your soup have a coconut flavor?

Not that I can tell. I use a lot of coconut milk though so my taste buds may be immune.

If you like Thai or Indian a lot of curries use coconut milk and could easily be made low carb depending on what vegetables you decide to add. You don't really taste the coconut there either as the other spices overwhelm any coconut flavor. It just makes the dish more creamy.

I'm not really big on curries, but maybe I need to try it again. Thanks!
