Attention Coconut Cream Lovers: 15 Dishes You’ll Love

Attention Coconut Cream Lovers: 15 Dishes You’ll Love

Coconut milk, or coconut cream, adds texture and flavor to each dish it is added to. The rich flavor and creaminess of coconut milk comes from the high oil content — a large component of the milk is saturated fat. This fat is one of the healthy fats that should be part of your diet.

Here are my top 15 dishes I know all coconut devotees will love. They are great recipes that anyone who is new to the world of coconut milk will also enjoy.

1. Fresh Tuna in Coconut Curry Sauce in 30 Minutes

    This is a great way to shake up a tuna steak. Potato sides and broccoli florets are added for carbs and color.

    2. Mild Chicken Curry

      This mild curry is a great way to introduce children to the world of curries.

        Make sure to make up a big batch of these as they are sure to be a hit with the whole family. They are also delicious and great as leftovers the following day.

        4. Banana Cake With Chia Seeds & Coconut Milk

        Banana-Chia-Seed-Cake

          Now this is something different. It’s great treat if you are trying to decrease any sugar cravings with just 1/3 cup of honey for sweetness.

          5. Spiced Coconut Squash Breakfast Porridge

            This breakfast porridge could be the perfect stand in for traditional oatmeal, while still being free of grains, dairy, nuts, and seeds. It’s warm, comforting, and creamy, and the texture is spot-on.

            6. Chocolate Cherry Milkshakes

              Naturally sweetened with maple syrup, there’s a hint of cocoa powder and vanilla. These taste as divine as they look! Trust me!

              7. Blackberry Avocado Jam Smoothie Bowl

              1436291917939

                Don’t be overwhelmed by a number of toppings. Feel free to just have one or two on your smoothie bowl.

                8. Chocolate Milk Chocolate Pudding

                coconut-milk-pudding

                  The title is a bit of a tongue twister, but it sure is a chocoholic’s delight. You can substitute potato starch with corn flour if you are unable to source potato starch.

                  9. Vegan Creamy Curried Cauliflower Soup

                  911c9f68136ddb98e3076bb2bd0a05fd029520d2

                    Cauliflower is the latest vegetable to be brought out of the “granny box” and be re-invented, and this recipe does just that. The great thing about this recipe is that it takes very little time to put together. You simply cook down the onions and garlic with cauliflower, broth, and warm spices, and you’re ready your favorite toppings, such as parsley and toasty cashews.

                    10. Goan Coconut Cake (Baath)

                    goan_coconut_cake_2000x1500-1

                      A hint of rosewater adds sweet, floral aroma to this moist, dense semolina cake, packed with not one, but four types of coconut.

                      11. Vegan Kale and White Bean Korma

                      94acc724-a363-4d18-a897-837bc6fe57c9--2014-0211_CP_vegan-kale-white-bean-sweet-potato-korma-018

                        This dish is everything you want it to be: hearty, warming, flavorful, and healthy without feeling too virtuous.

                        12. Savory Bacon and Potato Pancakes

                        Advertising

                        Flourless-Bacon-Potato-Pancakes

                          These pancakes are a marriage of potatoes and bacon and eggs. These pancakes have no added flour in them — in any form. Just mashed up potatoes, coconut milk, eggs, chives, bacon, and a pinch of salt. You can serve this one up for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!

                          13. Seared Salmon Pasta With Coconut Milk Chili Sauce

                          dreamfields-salmon-pasta-4-680x1020

                            This is an Asian-inspired pasta dish that’s a changeup from Italian flavors. This is good news for those of you who cannot tolerate cheese; there is no cheese in this recipe, and this dish is still super satisfying and made slightly creamy with coconut milk.

                            14. Coconut Rice Custard

                            bowl-cream_300

                              This might be a great way of using up any leftover rice! Twenty-five minute of prep time are needed, but be ready for the one hour slow-cooking time in the oven. It is well worth the wait though.

                              15. Simple Coconut Milk Fish Curry

                              simple-coconut-milk-fish-curry-500x370

                                Served with jasmine rice and steamed greens, this is a quick and easy meal you can make in just 30 minutes.

                                8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

                                8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

                                We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

                                On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

                                Advertising

                                Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

                                1. Smart Door Locks

                                A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

                                2. Smart Kitchen Tools

                                Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

                                3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

                                If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

                                4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

                                These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

                                5. Nest Thermostat

                                This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

                                6. Smart Lighting

                                Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

                                7. Google Chromecast Ultra

                                Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

                                8. Canary

                                This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
