Coconut milk is not the juice found inside a coconut. It is a derivative from the cream process, which is when shredded coconut meat (the white part) is steeped in hot water until it is cooled. Then it is squeezed until it is dried. Then the liquid gathered is strained to remove all the pulp and then left to sit. The coconut cream rises to the top. Then hot water is added to the pulp which was left over and the above process is repeated producing a lighter liquid which is “coconut milk”. Some local Hawaiian dishes that utilize coconut milk are squid lu’au and haupia (coconut Jell-o dessert). This product contains 13.5 oz. of coconut milk.
