  1. How does the coconut milk compare to regular milk in terms of taste?

    • Coconut milk is somewhat sweeter than regular milk. Really helps round out the whole dish. I use it in a lot of soups and even paleo alfredo sauce! If you want the dish to be more savory, you can balance out the sweetness by adding some heat like curry, crushed red pepper, or cayenne!
