What is Creamed Coconut?

Also known as coconut cream concentrate or coconut butter.

Creamed coconut is a coconut product made from the unsweetened, dehydrated fresh meat of the coconut, which is ground into a semi-solid white creamy paste.

Creamed Coconut has 73% fat so should be used sparingly. You can add a few tablespoons directly to food or dilute it to coconut milk consistency.

To dilute it into coconut milk consistency add three tablespoons (45g/1.5oz) to 142ml (generous 1/2 cup) hot water and beat well to mix. Use as you would, coconut milk.
