"My absolute FAVOURITE, I LOVE this stuff and I’ve used it so much since I got my hands on a jar. Who knew that making your own coconut milk could be so simple! It’s the easiest thing to add to recipes if a sauce needs thickening or if a dish needs just a tiny bit more oomph as it has a rich coconut aroma and flavour. With creamed coconut, you make as much or as little as you need which means there’s less waste; it’s more economical; and environmentally friendly, with less packaging to throw away." - Lucy

No need to ever buy canned coconut milk again (and end up throwing half away!) - make as much or as little coconut milk as needed. It’s also great for adding a creaminess to dishes.

How to use

With your jar of Creamed Coconut, it's natural for the coconut oil to separate from the coconut meat. The oil will solidify and sit on the top - if you look at the side of the jar, you can see this as white at the top and then the coconut meat shows as a creamy colour. The oil needs to be mixed in with the coconut meat to use - warm the jar (we stand ours in a bowl of hot water at 64C, for around 30 minutes; or in colder weather you could stand the jar on a warm radiator), then stir and mix it together. We do not recommend using a microwave to heat this product as it can burn.

This is particularly important if making coconut milk, to make sure it blends properly. For a delicious, all natural coconut milk simply blend Lucy Bee Creamed Coconut with room temperature or warm water, using more or less depending on the richness required.

It can also be stirred into casseroles and sauces; used as a dairy free creamy frosting for bakes and cakes; or simply use as a vegan spread.

Not recommended for frying or using in a microwave.

    1. Best Creamed Coconut Recipes 

    Creamed Coconut can be used to make coconut milk or added to sauces for creaminess. It also works well in bakes such as:

    Orange and Creamed Coconut Cake

    Creamed Coconut Fudge Chocolate

    1. How to Make Coconut Milk 

    Firstly, make sure any separated oil is mixed back into the creamed coconut (this will appear as white at the top of the jar – to mix in, warm the jar and stir into the creamed coconut). To make 200ml of coconut milk, use a high-speed blender and blend 40g Lucy Bee Creamed Coconut with 170ml lukewarm water. If you leave the milk to stand, shake before using.

    See this video How to Make Coconut Milk here 

    1. What is Creamed Coconut? 

    Creamed Coconut is dried, shredded and pureed coconut flesh. It has a rich, creamy texture which can transform dishes.

    1. What do You do with Creamed Coconut? 

    Creamed Coconut can be used in numerous way: make coconut milk; use as a dairy free breakfast milk alternative; stir into soups for a rich creaminess; use when cooking grains such as porridge or rice; use in any recipe requiring coconut milk and you only need to make as much as needed, rather than opening a can and throwing half of it away; use as a butter replacement on toast; in bakes and cakes; and, of course, in curries!

    1. What’s the Difference Between Creamed Coconut and Coconut Milk? 

    Creamed coconut is dried and pureed coconut flesh.

    Coconut milk is made either by:

    • blending together creamed coconut and water
    • or soaking shredded coconut flesh in hot water. Coconut cream rises to the top and can be skimmed off. The liquid that’s left is then squeezed through a cheesecloth to make coconut milk.

    6. Can I use your Creamed Coconut to make coconut milk for my infant son with dairy allergies and does it contain the necessary nutrients as a replacement for milk, for a 1 year old?

    You can replicate coconut milk using our Creamed Coconut, room temperature water and a blender.

    In this particular instance (a one year old with dairy allergies), it’s worth noting that our Creamed Coconut is not fortified with any micronutrients (calcium, vitamin D, B12). So, if you were to use Lucy Bee Creamed Coconut as an alternative to a fortified milk, be aware that you would need to make sure these nutrients are available elsewhere in the diet.

    The great thing about our Creamed Coconut is that you can make the milk whenever you need it, and the exact amount required.

    If you store the creamed coconut milk in the fridge, the creamed coconut and the water will separate because it has no stabilisers in it. To use, simply shake or blitz it together again to combine.

    If using bought, pre-made coconut milk, it’s worth looking at the labelling of ingredients since a lot of companies use sugar(s) or fruit juices to sweeten their drinks as well – this is just something to be aware of.

    7. Does Lucy Bee Creamed Coconut contain any soya?

     Our producer confirms that our “Creamed Coconut does not contain soya nor any of its derivatives.  Soya, moreover, is not present or used in the same facility as the Creamed Coconut is produced."

    Love this and it gives the curries a great flavour and creamy texture

    Hi Kerry, thank you for your review. The Creamed Coconut is perfect as you can use as much, or as little as you need, without having to waste half a tin. If you need any recipe inspiration we have lots on - Daisy

    Hi Marie, thank you for your review, and glad to hear that you like the creamed coconut! It has such a rich and creamy flavour and works so well in curries, baking and other recipes. It's also handy that instead of wasting half a tin of coconut milk, you can just replace the lid and store it in your cupboard. Daisy



    David M

    love this product and use in cakes and for non dairy milk on breakfast etc

    Hi David, thank you so much for your review. Glad to hear that you like the creamed coconut, it is such a versatile product to use, if you need any more recipe ideas you can visit our website for more - we have a dairy free chocolate pudding pot which tastes amazing! Daisy

    Karen B

    I have been using this product to make my own coconut milk for over a year, since seeing Lucy Bees video on how to do it. I cannot drink my coffee any other way now. I also use it in smoothies, and cooking, and I love how I know exactly what is in it. Never had any faults with the quality of this product in the time I have been ordering. Thoroughly recommend!

    Hi Karen, thank you for your brilliant review and recommendation for the creamed coconut. It is such a versatile product, and has so many uses as you said! Daisy

    Laurie M

    Delicious product. I warm it slightly, then use a knife to blend it (all creamed coconut separates on standing). I add a teaspon to my coffee every morning in place of milk or cream - yummy - and use in soups and curries. Wouldn't want to be without it.

    Thank you for sharing your brilliant review, Laurie. It's great reading the different ways people use our products! We have lots of recipes and tips on our website if you are ever looking for inspiration :) Hannah

    Matthew M

    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!

    Thank you for sharing, Matthew. It's great to hear that you love our Creamed Coconut and are using it in anything you can! Wow - that sounds like a delicious recipe! If you are ever looking for inspiration, we have lots of recipes and tips on how to use our products on our website.

    Lindy V

    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 ... !!!

    Hi Lindy, Creamed Coconut can be used in all sorts of ways! Sweet, savoury and even to drink! We have lots of tips and inspiration on our website if you are ever looking for any. It's great to hear you are already using our Creamed Coconut in your curry and it cools them down so your son can enjoy them too! Thank you for another great review. Hannah

    Eleanor W

    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.

    Hi Eleanor, many thanks for your review. It's great to hear you love our Creamed Coconut as much as we do. If you need any recipe ideas, Lucy often posts videos on Facebook/ Instagram, or you can look at In the office we like to stir it straight into soups to thicken and add flavour. Rian.


    The creamed coconut in rice and a Thai green curry is amazing! Such a lovely flavour. Can’t wait to use in more dishes.

    Thank you for your review! I agree, the creamed coconut is fantastic in a green curry. We have lots of recipe ideas on Enjoy! Rian x


    John B

    Brilliant addition to loads of dishes; well worth buying!

    Thanks for your review John, I love stirring the Creamed Coconut into my porridge as a treat! Rian.

    Rebecca S

    The best thing EVER

    Hi Rebecca, we are so pleased you love our Creamed Coconut as much as we do! Who knew that making your own coconut milk could be so simple! I also add a small amount straight from the jar into soups and porridge. Enjoy! Rian

    Sonia A

    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.

    Hi Sonia, great to hear you are enjoying the Creamed Coconut. I love using in curries, and Lucy has also just recently posted a recipe for pancakes. Enjoy! Rian

    Alyson B

    The richest creamiest creamed coconut I’ve ever had, could eat it from the jar, delicious

    Thank you for your review, Alyson. The Creamed Coconut is one of my favourite products too, it can transform a dish so quickly! If you are after any recipe tips or suggestions then please check our website - Georgia


    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!

    Like you, I find this product is so good to use to add creaminess to dishes. It's perfect to stir into homemade soups, sauces and curries. We always recommend stirring any separated, naturally-occurring oil back into the creamed coconut, before using and have details on this on our website. We don't recommend this for frying though or using in a microwave as it can burn. Petrina

    Deborah L

    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.

    Hi Deborah, I love using this in cooking to add a rich creaminess and also love eating it from the spoon when peckish! If you need any recipe inspiration, check out our website or you can follow Lucy and the team on social media where they share recipes too. Petrina


    Added to my curry last night - was amazing! made it so tasty and creamy!

    Hi, thank you for your great review! The creamed coconut is so versatile! Also it is so tasty straight off the spoon too :) If you are looking for recipe inspiration head to :) Jess


    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.

    Holly W

    The most delicious thing ever created! I use it in curry’s, smoothies, coffee and anything else I can think of!

    Thank you for your lovely review, it's brilliant to hear how much you're loving your Creamed Coconut! If you're on social media then please share your creations with us, we love seeing them! Georgia

    Laila Y

    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).

    Thank you for your great review, Laila. We're so glad to hear that you're loving your Creamed Coconut. Please do let us know if you manage to crack the recipe for Coconut Yoghurt - we love to see what our users manage to create. Enjoy! Georgia

    Christina C

    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!

    Hi Christina, I agree I love its versatility and convenience! I have it off the spoon and love adding to several dishes such as my porridge, curries and smoothies. If you are looking for any recipe inspiration head to our website and share you creations with us on social media! Jess

    Charlie W

    Love this-fab in cooking. I've just made a curry and added a dollop to make it creamy.

    Thanks for your review, Charlie - we love using this in curries too! My favourite way to use it is in coronation chicken/tofu. We have a recipe on our website -
