Do any of you good people have suggestions for disguising the very sickly sweet taste of canned coconut milk?

coconut milk is a fantastic way to gain weight and put on good weight. it has been used by guys like Mike Brown, and a lifter out of Hawaii with great results.

I use it in curry's and thai soups mostly. Also have an excellent peanut satay recipe that calls for a can.

Drink it though? Ugh!

Go to an Asian food market and buy some yellow curry paste. Follow the directions (basically mix a certain amount of paste with a certain amount of coconut milk) and you have a delicious creamy and spicy sauce. I can literally sit there and eat it with a spoon. If you've had Chinese curry chicken, which is chicken, potatoes and onions in a yellow sauce, you've tasted this stuff.

What I have right now is "Mae Ploy Yellow Curry Paste". The ingrediants are: lemon grass, garlic, shallot, salt, galangal, dried red chili, coriander seed, kaffir lime peel, cumin, cinnamon, mace, turmeric and cardamon. There's a couple there I don't recognize but seems to be pretty paleo-friendly.

I agree. Add it to something. Drinking coconut milk is an uphill battle.

what's really cool is that they make it in a "lite" version. way way less calories...all the taste.

I tried to play around with drinking coconut milk as a snack and pre workout food ( bad idea, gas, too much fat ) and a post workout food ( which wasn't so bad ).

Still, it was just too difficult to stomach. It didn't mix well in any post workout shake either.
