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.
Great products, great customer service! The creamed coconut is one of my favourite products - especially to make coconut milk with. It’s quick, easy and cost affective and I know it’s pure ingredients too!
Think I would have preferred individual packets in portion sizes, but probably not so environmentally friendly....
So versatile, love it use it for sweet and savoury dishes. Much better value than tins, no waste.
I thought I'd gamble on trying this out, seeing as the rest of the LB products I've tried are of such high quality. I almost see it as separate from tinned coconut milk, regardless of it's organicness, or lack thereof, but nevertheless it's fantastic stuff. If it's warmed it can be spread of toast, chipped out and lobbed into curries and soups, or melted into yogurt... or just eat it alone. Certainly better value for money compared to tinned milk, which isn't cheap once you start looking at the high quality organic varieties. Just about to make my second purchase, however much that is worth.
Just made a curry with this product instead of usual shop bought coconut milk and it tasted so delicious I had to write a review. Just remember before using the first time you have to immerse the whole jar in hot water for 30 mins and stir the oil and coconut together until well mixed, this is essential. What is left is really tasty high quality creamed coconut of far superior quality than other branded creamed coconut blocks which I have tried. It mixed easily with hot water to make simple nutritious coconut milk anytime and quantity required rather than before having to freeze half the tin. This will be a cupboard staple for me alongside Lucy Bee Coconut Oil.
Absolutely winning for my curry with this one, soon yummy thank you!
Love this product! It’s so creamy and delicious! Love it in curries, in smoothies and make coconut milk with it. Very versatile and apart from having to wait 20 mins for it to melt, it’s a fab product and well worth the wait!
This product tastes fantastic, but unfortunately I am finding I have to soak it in warm water for 30+ minutes every time I need to use it whereas the website states you only need to do it the first time. And maybe on occasion in the future. Not only is this massively inconvenient, but it's a huge waste of water as the jar needs to be almost covered to work. Guilt! The implied convenience was a huge draw for me to buy the product and unfortunately it has not delivered on this front.
I did not know when I bought it that you just mix water and it made coconut milk! This is awesome!
Very dissatisfied with the instructions on the jar which are not as detailed as on this website. My Thai curry was totally car crash using 40g of Lucy Bee Creamed Coconut mixed with 170ml of water as per 'How to use' on the jar - no mention on the jar of melting the contents at 64 degrees for 30 minutes, stir and mix prior to using (?) - a disaster, wasted time, effort, and expensive vegetables plus £6.95 on Creamed Coconut. I guess I may have inadvertently used all the coconut oil scooping from the top of the jar, so it will also be a waste of time melting the remains too...
I love coconut milk and coconut products anyway but have been so excited about Lucy Bees creamed coconut arriving in the UK! Now I have had my first jar for a week!! I use daily in smoothies, I just add a teaspoon from the jar to the blender along with all other ingredients, Delicious :-) Then coconut milk is SO easy to make. It is just so convenient to use and store and a great product. Proving to be one of the most popular in my cupboard. Thanks Lucy Bee!!
