Made a chicken curry using the creamed coconut. I had a sneaky taste of it out of the jar and could have eaten the lot!!!
This stuff is amazing! I originally bought it for a soap ingredient, but after tasting it - melt on the tongue heaven - I use it in anything I can! My favourite is my BANANA SHAKE RECIPE: 1 banana pureed in blender with a little cow's or Lucy Bee's Coconut Milk - or half and half. Then 1/4-1/2 tsp Lucy Bee's Chai Blend, 2-3 tbsp on Lucy Bee's Coconut Cream (warmed up with a little milk until it's quite fluid) then topped up with milk and blended some more. Best served if chilled in freezer for an hour before drinking: a super-creamy ice-cream-like banana shake you won't forget!
We eat so much curry in this house - pre-made by my mum. Some of these are too hot for my son to eat... not an issue. Grab my Lucy Bee Raw Creamed Coconut; chuck a load in the pot and cook it away as the originally made curry re-heats. Great product. Cannot live without ... !!!
Love the creamed coconut. A favourite in oyr house. Cant recommend it highly enough.
Re purchased this a few times , mainly as we love it love it curries /stews can transform a dish. Perfect in cakes too our favourite at the moment is the creamed coconut orange cake.
The creamed coconut in rice and a Thai green curry is amazing! Such a lovely flavour. Can’t wait to use in more dishes.
Brilliant addition to loads of dishes; well worth buying!
The best thing EVER
I love creamed coconut. This with a bit of hot water and lime is a perfect dressing to add to a spicy dish. Also works really well in soups and curries.
The richest creamiest creamed coconut I’ve ever had, could eat it from the jar, delicious
Game changer for cooking nice stir fries, curríes etc. Use as little or as much as you like and much more economical. Great to have in the store cupboard. Love using it in chicken satay- the Lucy bee recipe. So tasty!
I really love this product, it tastes so good.Also it’s so handy having a jar that you can take just what you need. I so often use half a tin of coconut milk and then waste the rest.
Added to my curry last night - was amazing! made it so tasty and creamy!
Really great product and great to have a coconut milk without anything added. Could do with more instructions on the label but that is a minor issue - I knew to mix in the separated oil only after reading the reviews. To aid getting out the jar I have frozen some in an ice cube tray so now very easy to get some when I don't have time to warm the jar. Will be buying again as have used in lots of different dishes without needing to waste or open an entire tin. Next experiment is coconut yoghurt.
The most delicious thing ever created! I use it in curry’s, smoothies, coffee and anything else I can think of!
Such a good idea - saves having loads of tins of coconut milk (that is usually filled with random stuff), whereas this is 100% organic creamed coconut - nothing else, so you know exactly what you are eating! I make loads of homemade curries so it's perfect for this, my next mission is homemade coconut yogurt. I'm unsuccessful thus far :( I also re-use the jars for storage or overnights oats! (Where I use LucyBee cocao powder).
I love this! Feels good not to buying tins of coconut milk anymore, plus, this tastes amazing. I also use it as a spread. Lovely! Thanks Lucy and Team for a fantastic product!
Love this-fab in cooking. I've just made a curry and added a dollop to make it creamy.
This is absolutely delicious as a spread - haven't even used it for anything else yet but this is enough!
Though I haven't use it yet but like what I see in the bottle.
This is a brilliant product. I eat a huge amount of coconut oil and creamed coconut as part of a ketogenic diet and so am somewhat of a connoisseur! This honestly tastes great. For the last 12 months I have been using another organic brand that comes in a block of 200 grams. The only thing that I don't like about a block is that it's wrapped in plastic which I try to avoid. So I was delighted to find this product. It is more tricky to use but I am able to remove a portion of coconut without heating the jar which I am pleased about. I basically love everything about this product except the price, hence only 4 stars. You could buy 800 grams of the blocks for the same price if you buy in bulk and so I feel a jar could be between £5 and £6 rather than over £7. I am happy to pay a bit extra for the glass jar but this seems very expensive, particularly when you eat a lot of it. Please Lucy Bee make it more affordable if possible. Otherwise, it's a fantastic product.
I've never tried this before but used it in a chicken korma I made as an alternative to coconut milk, as you suggested with added water and was really impressed. Tasted amazing!
Id love to tell you how it works for making coconut milk but... we just eat it off the spoon! me and my 4 year old and 1 year old are obsessed with this stuff, yum yum. great for making fudgy treats too- eg we mix it with macadamia nuts, vanilla, butter a little honey and blend - fridge then cut into pieces and eat, good job we follow a paleo diet so dont have to worry about fat grams or calories! as far too many get eaten in one sitting! :)
Great taste, lovely and creamy, no waste
This product is wonderful. I have been looking for a coconut milk without rice, gums and synthetic vitamins so when I came across Creamed Coconut I have not looked back since. It is a high quality, natural product so ticks all the boxes for me. I do agree with some comments that it might be not very convenient to make and it hardens up after melting. Having said that, I think we all got to used to convenient, easy food a bit too much, therefore I’m happy to make a conscious choice of a natural product over convenience. I also love reusing the jars for other stuff.
Need to put advisory note on jar to warm before trying to mix and remove creamed coconut as when cold is very hard and oil separates to the top of the jar. Tastes amazing and is sustainable.
Great product, however disappointed to see this at a set price of £6 in Morrisons when I paid £7.95 buying direct.
