What to do with leftover coconut milk?

(photo coming soon!)

The other day, I made a big portion of spinach dhal, though not big enough to absorb an entire tin of coconut milk. Therefore, I had to come up with a few other uses of coconut milk… Good thing I had a pineapple in the house, so I could make a few of the following desserts:

Coconut Milkshake

Coconut Milk
Cow’s Milk
Fresh Pineapple chunks
Optional: Sugar, ice cream

Blend all ingredients!

Coconut rice pudding

Leftover or freshly made rice pudding
Coconut milk

Mix rice pudding with coconut milk to taste. Serve with fruit, fruit or chocolate sauce, spiced sugar, chopped almonds/nuts, coconut shavings.

Here is a more sophisticated version of this recipe: Rice Pudding, Pineapple and Coconut Parfait

Coconut and pineapple pudding

Coconut milk
Pineapple
Cornflour
Sugar

Gently heat most of the coconut milk. Sweeten to taste. Stir cornflour into the remaining coconut milk. Add cornflour-coconut milk mix to the hot coconut milk until it thickens. Take off the hob and blend in pineapple.

You can also make a delicious steamed pudding with some eggs and flour. A nice recipe can be found here.
