    More Info

    What do I Taste Like?

    As you’d imagine, our Coconut Milk has a subtle coconut flavour with a rich, velvety, smooth texture.

    Where am I From?

    Like our other coconut products, our Coconut Milk is from the Philippines. The palms grow in an agroforestry environment which supports nature, and organic farming methods are observed.

    Why Fair Trade?

    Fair Trade is at the foundation of all that we do at Lucy Bee, to help make a difference to the lives of those who grow, harvest and produce our products.

    The Fair Trade premiums from our Coconut Milk ensure:

    • No exploitation of workers
    • Funds to support education
    • Funds for a feeding progamme for undernourished children
    • Projects such as coconut planting initiatives
    • No monkeys are used to pick the coconuts used to make this milk

    Packaging

    Our Coconut Milk is packed in a Tetra prisma carton which is recyclable. During recycling the carton is mixed with water and shred in a large blender to separate the materials (pulp, polymers and aluminium)

    • The paper pulp is dried and pressed into high quality fibre which is used for cartons, boxes, paper bags etc
    • Polymers/shredded plastic is melted, then cooled into pellets to be reused, such as used for wheelie bins
    • Polymers and aluminium are combined and pressed into lumbers which is used for garden furniture, desks, chairs etc.

    Click here for details.

    The cartons are packed in recyclable card SRPs.

    Are Tetra Paks biodegradable?

    Tetra advise, “On average, Tetra Pak packages are made of 75% paper board and 21% polymers and 4% aluminium. Each material has its own function and purpose to protect the liquid food inside.

    “Tetra Pak packages, which are primarily made of paper board which comes from a renewable resource, is biodegradable. However, other materials in Tetra Pak packages are not biodegradable, due to food protection and recycling reasons.”

    So, the paper board element is biodegradable, whereas the remaining materials are not biodegradable, only recyclable as per the above.

    FAQs

    1. How long will coconut milk keep in a fridge?

    Unopened, our Coconut Milk will keep until the Best Before Date. Once opened, store in the fridge and use within 3 days. Our Coconut Milk is best served chilled.

    2. What does coconut milk taste like?

    Our Coconut Milk has a delicious coconutty taste.

    3. Can coconut milk be frozen?

    Our Coconut Milk is NOT suitable for freezing.

    Our manufacturer advises that if frozen the coconut water and fat content of the product may separate, with some creaming effect. This is a natural phenomenon or occurrence on this storage condition, it is still safe for consumption but it may just affect the appearance of the product.

    4. Is this the same as coconut milk from a tin?

    No, it is not. Tinned coconut milk is usually a 50/50 split of regular water and coconut (sometimes coconut extract), and usually includes emulsifiers and stabilisers. Tinned coconut milk is generally used in cooking, such as curries etc.

    Lucy Bee Coconut Milk is 90.5% coconut water, 9.4% coconut cream, with 0.1% xanthan gum (to stop it from separating). It is more of a milk that you drink, add to smoothies, porridge, cereals and use in baking and sauces. It is still good to use in cooking and is a lighter version ie. with less fat.

    The difference is that you usually wouldn’t drink a tin of coconut milk, whereas ours is intended to be enjoyed as a drink alternative, as well as cooking.

    5. Is coconut milk better for you than ordinary milk?

    It depends on what you are looking for in a milk. Coconut milk isn’t per say better than milk, however it is beneficial for those who may be lactose intolerant, or do not consume dairy products, for various reasons, such as vegans.  

    It is lower in carbohydrates and sugars in comparison to milk.

    6. Is coconut milk bad for you?

    Our Coconut Milk drink is not bad for you to drink. It can be consumed as part of a healthy balanced diet and is a plant-based alternative to milk.

    6. What are the benefits of coconut milk?

    Lucy Bee Coconut Milk drink is a source of protein with 17.78% of its energy source coming from protein:

    • Protein contributes to a growth in muscle mass
    • Protein contributes to the maintenance of muscle mass
    • Protein contributes to the maintenance of normal bones

    Our Coconut Milk contains no added sugar or sweeteners and is low in naturally occurring sugars

    It is a plant-based alternative to animal milks and has a better taste and texture than lots of plant-based milks, which are mainly just water and are also bulked out with fillers. Whereas Lucy Bee Coconut Milk is just coconut water (90.5%), creamed coconut (9.4%) and a smidge of xanthan gum (0.1%).

    7. Is coconut milk or almond milk better for you?

    It depends what you’re looking for. If you can’t have nut milks due to allergies, then this coconut milk drink is a suitable alternative as there are no nuts in it.

    It’s also worth looking at what your almond milk is made up of. Is it just almonds and water, or are there other things added into it?

    8. Is coconut milk a saturated fat?

    Per 100ml, Lucy Bee Coconut Milk contains 2.1g of saturated fat which is a little bit less than full fat milk. Full fat milk usually has a range of 2.4g-2.6g of saturated fat per 100ml.

    Lucy Bee Coconut Milk is lower in carbohydrates than many nut-based milks, which use rice for fillers. Our Coconut Milk has a creamy texture, with no added sugars or fillers.

    9. How many coconuts are in each 1 litre carton of you Coconut Milk?

    Each 1 litre carton is made from approximately 3 coconuts.

    10. The coconut water used in your Coconut Milk, is this from young or mature coconuts?

    The coconut water used in our Coconut Milk is from the fully ripened coconut. The water from the fully ripened coconut is loaded with more electrolytes and less fructose, than young coconuts

    Harvesting coconuts prematurely is not a sustainable model - it is a waste because the white coconut meat is not developed and can’t be used.

    The coconuts used for Lucy Bee Coconut Milk are Malayan Tall coconuts.

    11. Can you use Lucy Bee Coconut Milk to make yoghurt?

    We have used our Coconut Milk to make yoghurt – it was runnier/thinner and needed to add more fat to get the thicker consistency that you often associate with yoghurt, so we added 2-3 tablespoons of our Creamed Coconut to it. Once made, we found that there was some liquid left on the top which was fine when using this in a smoothie but if you want to eat it as a dessert then you may need to drain off some liquid.

    Delicious will be buying this regularly. Great news that it’s stocked in some supermarkets now too.

    Hi, thank you so much for your review. I'm glad to hear that you like the coconut milk. As it is 99.9% coconut we don't need to use fillers to add flavour or texture to it. Thank you again, Daisy

    Sumaira A

    Tastes delicious have it everyday with smoothie or cereal

    Hi Sumaira, thank you so much for your review, and it's great that you like the milk. Our milk is #1 Ethical Best Buy in the Uk for coconut milks and is made up of 99.9% coconut, unlike many brands. Daisy

    Claudine B

    Excellent product. Very pure.

    Thanks Claudine! This is the only 99.9% Coconut Milk on the UK market, with no water or fillers - not that these are bad but it's interesting to check ingredients and see what you're paying for! Petrina

    Michelle J

    Delicious. I use this coconut milk in our porridge, smoothies, baking and the list goes on. Such good quality coconut milk. I am over the moon!

    Hi Michelle, thank you for such a wonderful review. Our coconut milk is #1 Ethical Best Buy for coconut milks in the UK. As well as being 99.9% coconut, instead of using fillers like rice. Thank you again, Daisy

    Love it! I use a lot of coconut milk in most of my cooking. Just perfect with porridge, smoothies and curries. I normally use an almond milk to cook my gluten-free organic porridge then I discovered LB coconut milk and when I tried it wow it works perfectly. My porridge became more smoother and creamier and it tastes so so good. am now using LB coco nut(not) milk:) I would certainly recommend this product. Thank you for your truthfulness in delivering quality products. Neri

    Hi Neri, thank you for such a brilliant review, I'm glad to hear that you like the Coconut Milk. It really does add such a creamy flavour to porridge, I love adding a tablespoon of cacao to my porridge with the coconut milk, as it naturally sweetens it, and makes it creamy. With most plant based milks on the market, they are usually a lower percentage of coconut and mainly made up of water and fillers. Whereas we use 99.9% coconut (coconut water and cream), which gives it a much creamier taste and texture. Thank you again for your review, Daisy

    Michael M

    Tastes so much better than all those available in the supermarket, no surprises since they're mostly water. Definitely worth the extra money for a natural product.

    Hi Michael, thank you so much for a great review. As you said most other brands on the market are mostly made up of water and then only a small percentage of coconut, whereas we use 99.9% coconut (coconut water and coconut cream) which means that we don't have to use fillers to add texture or flavour. It is also Organic, #1 Ethical Best Buy for Coconut Milks in the UK, and is Fair Trade. Thank you again for your review. Daisy

    Debbie D

    The best coconut milk I have tried on the market! I use it almost every day for making porridge, lattes and or sauces.

    Hi Debbie, thank you for your review. The coconut milk is so versatile and works so well in recipes as you've said! If you need any more inspiration please visit www.lucybee.com for more recipes - Daisy

    Best coconut milk ever! The high quality of the product is obvious as soon you taste it. I will never use anything else again, Its amazing warmed up with Lucy bee caco powder. I used alpro unsweetened almond milk before that tasted like water... Never again!

    Hi Michelle, thank you so much for such a brilliant review. Instead of using fillers like rice, or just plain water, we use 99.9% coconut (coconut water and coconut cream). Which means that it has a creamier flavour. I love having a hot chocolate using the cacao and coconut milk, such a delicious drink. Thank you again for your review. Daisy

    Yvonne D

    Best coconut milk out there!

    Hi Yvonne, thank you so much for your review. Our coconut milk is 99.9% coconut, using both coconut water and coconut cream. Whereas many other brands use fillers, water and a small amount of coconut. Daisy

    Love this milk. It tastes just like the whole coconut

    Hadee F

    Coconut milk that actually tastes like real coconut. You’d probably never go back to drinking any other coconut milk.

    Hi Hadee, thank you so much for your review. Our coconut milk is 99.9% coconut (using coconut water and coconut cream), instead of relying on fillers like rice, water, or sugar or sweeteners. Our coconut milk is also #1 Ethical Best Buy for Coconut Milks in the UK as well. You can really taste the difference between us and other brands. Daisy

    kath l

    Oh my gosh....what an amazing taste and texture. I've tried various brands of coconut milk and always left with a vile watery mess. It's my first time trying this coconut milk, I use the coconut oil so thought I'd try more from the brand. As soon as you open and pour you know its quality, creamy and thick texture with a wonderful taste. Yes this what I've been looking for...don't bother with the rest...Lucy Bee is the best.

    Hi Kath, thank you so much for such a wonderful review! With our coconut milk, because we use 99.9% coconut (coconut water and coconut cream) we get that creamy texture, instead of when you use water and small amounts of coconut, and bulk it with rice, fillers or sweeteners or sugar. Our coconut milk was voted #1 Ethical Best Buy (by Ethical Consumer Magazine), as well as the milk being Organic and Fair Trade. Thank you again, and so happy to hear that you're enjoying the milk.

    Hands down the best coconut milk I’ve ever tried! Even tastes amazing straight out of the carton... can’t say the same for the others I’ve tried.
