So, what is leche de coco?

Leche de coco, which translates to "coconut milk" in English, is a creamy and versatile ingredient commonly used in Southeast Asian and Caribbean cuisines. It is made by extracting the liquid from grated coconut flesh, resulting in a rich and flavorful milk that can be used in both sweet and savory dishes. Coconut milk is a great alternative to dairy milk for those who are lactose intolerant or follow a vegan diet. It is also a good source of healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals, including potassium and magnesium. With its smooth texture and tropical taste, leche de coco adds depth and complexity to curries, soups, desserts, and beverages.
