    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.

    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 in your Coconut Milk, is this from young or mature coconuts?

    Our Coconut Water comes 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.

    I've not tried any other coconut milks but why would I want to when the Lucy Bee one is so delicious. Use it every day to as the liquid for my protein shakes and it takes them to a whole new level. Great with some Lucy Bee Cacao for a pre-bedtime hot drink. Cannot recommend this product enough, another fab addition to the Lucy Bee brand.

    Hi Anneke, thank you so much for your review, and I'm glad to hear that you like our coconut milk. Unlike most brands we use 99.9% coconut (coconut water and coconut cream) to make our milk, instead of using fillers like rice and water, and usually, these only contain a small amount of coconut in them. Our coconut milk is also #1 Ethical Best Buy for coconut milks in the UK. Daisy

    I bought this to have in my coffee and butter ghee as a breakfast and it was nicer than I expected. Unlike all the other coconut milks it didn’t spoil the taste of my coffee. I also use it in my fruit smoothies as a liquid matrix

    Hi Paul, It's great to hear that you're enjoying our Coconut Milk, especially in your coffee - we exhibited at the London Coffee Festival where baristas were using it to froth in their coffees and it was a great hit! Like you, I love it in smoothies too and did you know that you can also use it in cooking? Being 99.9% coconut makes our Coconut Milk different to any other plant-based milk on the market. Petrina

    Sandra

    Best tasting coconut milk. Tastes like real coconut. I've tried all of the big-name brand coconut milks and none of them are as good as this. I'm also surprised about the reasonable price - it costs as much as the other milks which are full of water.

    Thank you for your brilliant review, Sandra. It's great to hear you love our Coconut Milk as much as we do! It really is eye opening when you look at the ingredients on many of the well known brands as they contain a very low Coconut % and contain fillers such as regular water, rice, oil and oats. We are very proud of the fact ours is 99.9% Coconut and has no ADDED WATER or fillers in the ingredients. Personally I love it cold and fresh out the carton, but there any many other delicious ways to use it aswell! If you are ever looking for recipe ideas or inspiration then head over to our website :) Hannah

    Mr M

    Thank you SOooooo much for being, in the words of my 9 year old son, my saviour! For complex health reasons I have a very restricted diet and can hardly eat anything. One of my pleasures was a cup of tea with coconut milk. However, when my old milk went out of manufacture, I could not find a coconut milk that either wasn't disgusting and/or didn't make me ill. And most of them contained rice, which I cannot eat anyway. After a lot of wasted money and sickness, I had given up hope, and was feeling very sad and sorry for myself that my one pleasure had been taken away. And then I stumbled across you! Due to my previous experiences, I half heartedly ordered some of your coconut milk. I was almost too scared to try it, but it's AWESOME!!! I love it!! Even more than my old milk. Alleluia! Thank you for coming to my rescue and saving the day. Can't say how much I love the milk and how grateful I am to you. There is nothing else like it out there....trust me, I have tried every one! Thank you! X

    I recently bought a couple of cartons from my local Asda. I’d decided to limit my consumption of soya, which was featuring in virtually everything that I ate. I was attracted by the ethical production and the purity of the product. I was planning to use it mainly in tea so was a little sceptical about the taste. I have to say - it’s absolutely DELICIOUS. I went straight back to Asda and bought every carton on the shelf! (They need to hold a larger stock!!) If you like coconut, this is the real deal. Even using half soya with it in my tea, it’s still delish.

    Thank you for sharing, Lizzy. It's great to hear that you love the taste of our Coconut Milk and you cleared the shelf in Asda! Our Coconut Milk is made from 99.9% Coconut and has NO ADDED WATER OR FILLERS which means our Coconut Milk has a substantial differentiation from the rest of the market as we are the only brand on the UK market which NO ADDED WATER in the ingredients.

    I have tried a lot of dairy alternatives in the past and I was stuck on one particular brand thinking it was ok. A customer I got chatting to in my local persuaded me to try it.....best thing I’ve done. Had some in my fruit and fibre cereal and it tasted wonderful! Also just made a banging hot chocolate drink, and there was no after taste that I got with the other popular brand. It even tastes nice on it own too! I’m hooked after one try and will not be buying anything else!
