Coconuts - A great source of nutrition
Coconuts are actually a fruit, not a nut, with a unique combination of nutrients that have made them a staple part of the diet of millions of people living in the tropics.
Coconuts are a rich source of medium chain fatty acids (MCFAs), fatty acids that are more easily digested than fats found in other oils. Around 50% of these MCFA's are made up of lauric acid.
Rich in M.C.F.A.s
Consumption of 'good fats' is an important part of a balanced diet, contributing towards healthy cell function. The fat in coconut contains 60% medium chain fatty acids (MCFAs). Unlike saturated animal fats, MCFAs are not readily stored in the body but are digested and used as energy by the body.

Best milk substitute

The other reviews say it all. Kara means death to soya, rice, oat milk substitutes.

Rating: 5 star out of 5

good in tea or coffee

and cereal - more like cows milk in consistency and effect than rice milk, oat milk or soy. Doesn't taste of much so is easy to use, very nice in cooking, my family like this too - not too chalky like some 'milk's

Rating: 5 star out of 5


This really is the best substitute to milk for anyone who is lactose/dairy intolerant, like me. It goes with anything, and it's simply delicious in tea/coffee/hot chocolate. My husband now drinks it instead of normal milk - he says that he prefers the taste.

Rating: 5 star out of 5

best alternative to milk!

not too coconuty. perfect.

Rating: 5 star out of 5

Does Not Curdle My Coffee

I love strong milky coffee which is a real problem with most milk alternatives but not with Kara - Heat a small amount in microwave, add coffee, sugar, off-the-boil hot water, then another dash of Kara. Good for cereal. Ok in tea, although I find it needs a dash of sweetener which I don't normally have.


Cheat's Massaman Curry

Cheat's Massaman Curry

Quick version of a classic Massaman Curry. Massaman curries are cooked all over the Far East, unlike classic Thai green and red curries, which require fresh herbs and spices, the Massman uses a mixture of dried and fresh. The paste can be made up in larger batches and kept in the fridge for a week or frrozen for up to one month. Any meat can be used, chicken, beef, lamb, turkey, pork or duck or make a vegetarian version using a selection of vegetables or tofu. Children usually enjoy pounding the paste, if you're cooking this for children then reduce or leave out the chili.

Sticky Rice with Mango

Sticky Rice with Mango

A classic Thai pudding and a hit with anyone who likes normal rice pudding. This is rice pudding with a twist, the twist being the coconut milk and fresh mango. You'll need to wash and drain the rice 10-20 times until the water runs clear to get rid of the starch - a great job for children. You can substitute granulated sugar for palm sugar but use palm sugar if you can as it has a lovely toffee flavour.
