Coconut Milk: All You Need to Know


Coconut Milk is a dairy alternative with a tropical twist. Whole, coconut flesh is blended to make coconut butter, which is then mixed with water to make coconut milk. Coconut milk can be used the same way you’d use any dairy alternative – stirred into tea or coffee, poured over porridge or sloshed into cereals.

But coconut milk also has a few more tricks under its shell. This rudely alternative drink can also be used as an ingredient in cakes, curries, cocktails, ice creams, soups or sauces. The possibilities for dairy-free creativity are endless with this one. Search for our favourite coconut drink recipes here. Get cooking, baking and cocktail making.



Coconuts get hairier with age due to increased levels of testosterone triggered by the ripening process.


Make any breakfast sunnier by pouring Coconut Drink over a bowl of your morning favourite. Transform your coffee into a luxe latte. Try Coconut Milk instead of milk for pancakes like you’ve never had them before. You can add a whole new twist to rice pudding simply by substituting it for milk.


We aren’t the only ones who have caught on to how amazingly versatile coconut milk is, so now there are quite a few to choose from on the supermarket shelves. Other coconut dairy alternatives add thickeners and gums to make their coconut milk similar in texture to dairy milk but we think food should be made out of food and so we steer clear of any ingredients that are unnatural, unpronounceable and unrecognisable.

Rude Health Coconut Drink only contains four real, great tasting and great quality ingredients. Organic coconut butter, natural spring water, Organic rice and a pinch of sea salt. The rice acts as a natural thickener and the oils from the Organic coconut give it a creamy texture and a super coconut-ty taste. Nothing artificial or refined. It is organic and gluten-free but above all else, it tastes mouth meltingly delicious. The real proof is in the taste. Try it here today.

We got sick of spilling Coconut Drink down ourselves from trying to chug it straight from a 1L carton, so we brought out our 250ml coconut mini. Same quality ingredients, same great taste, all we’ve added is convenience. Pick up a case to last you a work week and get ready for lunch box envy.
