Low Fat Milk: The Best Substitute for Coconut Milk
Hi Friends of SlimGourmet! Most of the well-known Indonesian cuisines often contain coconut milk, such as rendang,opor ayam, and gulai. It cannot be denied that the function of coconut milk is to improve the taste of the cuisine, which is to add a savory flavor and a creamy texture.
However, behind the savory and delicious taste, coconut milk has a high calorie and fat value, so it is not good for health if it is consumed too much for a long period of time. In 100 grams of coconut milk, it contains 230 kcal of energy, 23.84 g of fat (21.14 grams of saturated fat). This saturated fat is not good for health when it is consumed too much because it can increase cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood LDL levels.
For those of you who want to cook coconut milk but are worried about its high saturated fat content, you can substitute coconut milk with other alternative ingredients, such as low fat milk. Low fat milk is the best substitute for coconut milk with similar taste to coconut milk with lower saturated fat content. The taste produced is almost as good as the original recipe using coconut milk. Low fat milk used by the SlimGourmet Premium Healthy Catering Kitchen Team as a substitute for coconut milk in some menus so that the cuisine is healthier and the taste is maintained.
