What is Coconut Milk?

Coconut Milk is extracted from the meat of the coconut. A coconut is the fruit of the palm tree, or, as some call it, the “Tree of Life.” Throughout history, certain cultures would rely heavily on the husked fruit utilizing the meat, water, oil, and shell in their day-to-day lives. Indonesian cultures even claimed that coconuts have as many uses as there are days per year!
