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.
