How to use up leftover light coconut milk

  • Coconut porridge
    Instead of using ordinary milk in porridge, use light coconut milk.  Cook on the hob over a low heat to prevent the coconut milk from splitting.
  • Rice pudding
    Swap the regular milk for light coconut milk (or use a mixture of both) when making rice pudding. Serve topped with caramelised banana slices.
  • Pannacotta
    Use light coconut milk instead of double cream in pannacotta recipes. Heat the milk gently (don’t let it boil) to prevent it from splitting.
