    I read a recipe recently that recommended putting the can of coconut milk into the fridge upside down. Gently turn it right side up, open and pour off the liquid before scooping out the thickened cream.

    Anyone try it yet?

    @Robyn I’ve done the upside down can trick numerous times and it works perfectly!

    The can trick is a life safer and finally even whipped coconut cream works.. I crave today after chocolate so will make in the afternoon and sub only berries for almonds..

    Hi, just wondering what you do with the liquid. Do you drink it, use it in other recipes or just discard it?
