I bought recently Nature’s Charm Condensed Coconut Milk and I wanted to share my thoughts on it. The same company has coconut evaporated milk and coconut whipping cream, both canned. I bought all of them. This is made by a vegan company, in Thailand, where they are producing the coconuts too. You can check their website and instagram for more details.
The Condensed Coconut Milk is made with coconut milk and cane sugar. Only one other ingredient is added: salt. This makes this product suitable for, well, anybody: vegans, coeliacs as it is, obviously, gluten free, and people with lactose intolerance. It has 386 calories per 100g.
I have a few recipes with condensed milk and I plan to, gradually, remake them vegan. The products made by Nature’s Charm will be very helpful with this. The condensed milk has the expected coconut flavour, but it is not too overpowering, making it good for desserts. Also, this milk alternative has a very similar texture to the dairy one, which is, again, really great. The sweetness is very similar too. I was very pleasantly surprised by it.
This is, obviously, a product aimed at vegans, but I think it is a good alternative for anyone who wants to try something new or who wants to make a coconut based dessert.
Now, let’s talk about price. Nature’s Charm Condensed Coconut Milk is just shy of £2.50 for 320g while the dairy alternative, from a brand we know, is about £1.5 for 400g. The difference in price is not as much as I was expecting it to be, considering that one is made from expensive coconuts.
