Coconut milk is an essential item to have in your pantry. It’s great because it doesn’t need to be refrigerated until you use it, but has all the properties of a normal dairy product. Whether you’re vegan, lactose-intolerant, or just love Asian-flavors, your pantry should never be without it. Scroll down for some coconut milk staples!

Thai Curry

Coconut milk is always necessary when it comes to Thai curries. The sweet and milkiness of the ingredient really balances the bright spiciness of the Thai curry paste and ties everything together perfectly every time. All you have to do is pour it in after you’ve added your veggies and curry paste, let it simmer away, and you have a gorgeous stew in no time.


If you’re looking for a way to cool down this summer, look no further than coconut popsicles. All you need to do is blend it with any type of sugar and fruit or other flavorings, pour it into molds, freeze, and you have an icy treat in a snap.

Coconut Rice

If you’re tired of boring rice made with water, amp it up with a can of coconut milk! Not only will it bring so much flavor to your rice without you having to do anything, it’s the perfect addition to curries, buddha bowls, and more!
