Coconut milk recipes

A can of creamy coconut milk adds richness to an array of sweet and savoury dishes – think curries, rice pudding, tarts, laksas and more. Find all our recipes using both full-fat and lighter coconut milk – it’s a great ingredient for creating creaminess if you’re dairy-free too!
