For those who love all things coconut, we are introducing CHI 100% Natural Coconut Milk this month.
With a creamy, coconutty taste, it is the perfect dairy free alternative to pour on cereal; mix into tea or simply serve on its own for a delicious drink. It is also a great ingredient for smoothies, and can be used as an alternative to cow’s milk in baking or desserts. Chi Coconut Milk is made by pressing fresh coconuts and contains only 100% natural ingredients.
Whether you are avoiding dairy, or simply love the taste, Chi Coconut Milk is made with high quality coconut cream and is naturally free from soya, gluten and lactose and suitable for vegans, vegetarians and coeliacs.
Coconut Milk is naturally high in ‘good fats’, and is made up of medium chain triglycerides, which are used up by the liver as energy, rather than stored as fat.
Highly nutritious and a source of protein, coconut milk is rich in fibre, vitamins C, E, B1, B3, B5 and B6 and minerals including iron, selenium, sodium, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium and phosphorous.
Coconut Milk is made up of medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) in particular, one called lauric acid. Lauric acid is converted in the body to monolaurin, a highly beneficial compound which is antiviral and antibacterial, which helps to maintain a healthy immune system.
We will be posting a competition and lots of amazing recipes with coconut milk soon. Stay tuned! 🙂
