We invite you to create recipes that use coconut milk (dairy-free product) instead of dairy ingredients. Statistics show that 70% of the global population experience stomachaches or diarrhea after drinking milk or foods containing dairy products. Dairy-free products also meet the needs of customers with dairy allergies.
What can you use as a substitute for milk?
One of the options is coconut milk. This product is extracted from the flesh of the coconut, which is white and gives a rich, creamy flavor very similar to milk. It can be used as a substitute for milk in many recipes. It helps improve the digestive system due to the reduced consumption of milk. It’s perfect for people with lactose intolerance and milk protein allergy as well as vegetarians and vegans, which can help increase sales opportunities.
MHA is recommending eight menu items that you can include your dairy-free recipes as well as Ampawa 100% Coconut Milk which is white, rich, aromatic and creamy just like freshly pressed coconut milk. It’s convenient to use and can be stored more easily and for longer than fresh coconut milk because it’s packaged in an easy-to-use bottle and has been through a preservative-free sterilizing packaging process. You can use it for savory or sweet dishes. If your restaurant uses a lot of coconut milk, Ampawa even offers 1,000-cc boxes as an option. You can buy Ampawa Coconut Milk at Makro or Makroclick.
1. Ice cream
Thai people have been familiar with ice cream for a long time. Normally, ice cream contains dairy as a main ingredient. However, you can substitute it all with coconut milk to make sweet and cold ice cream that retains the sweetness, creaminess and smooth texture but with the fragrance of coconut milk. You can serve it topped with red beans, sticky rice, toddy palm, etc. You can offer it as dessert in your restaurant or sell it in scoops. You can buy Ampawa Coconut Milk at Makro or Makroclick.
Try substituting the milk with coconut milk. First, mix together the chicken eggs, brown sugar, coconut milk, salt and vegetable oil and then add the flour. Next, fry the batter in a pan lightly coated with vegetable oil (or butter). Serve the pancakes with maple syrup or honey with banana or other fruits on the side. Otherwise, topping them with shredded coconut makes them pretty appetizing. You can buy Ampawa Coconut Milk at Makro or Makroclick.

We might be used to adding milk or creamer to coffee, but coconut milk coffee is becoming an increasingly popular trend overseas with health lovers and vegans because coconut milk is made from coconuts and is, therefore, cholesterol-free. It’s a food that contains high levels of saturated fat as well as medium-chain fatty acids that are easily digested and do not cause allergic reactions.
