Coconut Milk Shelf Life

In the refrigerator after it's opened. Anyone know? Thanks.

Canned coconut milk lasts about 5 or 6 days. Homemade coconut milk only lasts about 3 days. And coconut milk from a carton, with plenty of stabilizers and preservatives, may last up to a week. All in the fridge.

I freeze coconut milk I can't use quickly in ice cube trays.

Real food rots. Go for homemade or canned if you can.

I never thought of freezing coconut milk. It turns out okay? Thanks for the tip.

Yes, it works for me.
I freeze excess right away if I know I won't use it in a few days.

I get the 100% coconut milk Aroy-D tetrapak cartons that have no preservatives or other ingredients added. I think the package says it only keeps a day or two refrigerated after opening, so I go ahead and freeze what I don't use immediately.

I used to freeze coconut milk in ice cube trays & use the cubes when making protein shakes instead of ice. Very good!

The frozen coconut milk cubes keep better/longer if you put them in a baggy or other container once frozen.

I've frozen whatever wasn't used up without any problems. I use it for curry usually.

The three different kinds of coconut milk I have bought all say 7-10 days once opened.

It's good. Creamy at least. I don't like sweet coffee so it works for me

What kind are you talking about? The kind I buy is the Almond Breeze almond coconut milk blend and I have had it open for weeks and then use it as it has been fine. Not spoiled at all. So for me, the kind you find in the cartons with the rest of the milk lasts forever! I love to buy it on closeout when it is close to the sell out date to save a few dollars knowing that I can use it for a long long time.

I'm talking about the stuff that comes in a can and you get it in the Asian section. It's not refrigerated. It's for curries, peanut sauce, things like that.

Good question!!
