Homemade Evaporated Coconut Milk is so quick and easy to make at home. Use as you would store-bought dairy Evaporated Milk. In fact, this substitute has only one ingredient. It is simply a matter of reducing the water content. Many of you have recipes that include evaporated milk. Hence, now you can make a vegan dairy-free substitute. Yay!!
Homemade Evaporated Coconut Milk:
Needless to say, many people use Evaporated Milk in many dessert recipes. Prior to going grain-free and gluten-free, I made pumpkin pie with evaporated milk. Now, I can still make my pie with this alternate ingredient. In conclusion, don’t boil coconut milk as it creates an oily substance.
Nevertheless, unsweetened coconut milk can be bought at Amazon. Of course, in a pinch, it can be used as cream in tea or coffee.
Therefore, I hope that the one thing I have taught my children is to think outside of the box. That there is no one way to do anything and that life is full of choices. You can always make a different choice if a choice you made is not working for you. I hope I have taught them that you don’t have to like everyone but you do need to treat everyone you meet with kindness and respect even if they don’t treat you that way.
I am on a mission to create the tastiest food within my dietary parameters.
Indeed, it is my hope to be able to leave my audience with a little positivity to add to their day. Life is short and none of us are guaranteed a tomorrow. It is my hope that your weekend is filled with joy, contentment, and time with family.
I use this in my Crustless Pumpkin Pie

Does the coconut milk need to be full fat?

No. Just be sure to reduce by half. Thanks so much for asking.
