    I may try this not familiar with coconut milk are there different kinds

    Hi Claudia!
    Yes, there are different kinds. Use one that is unsweetened and I hope you'll find one you like. The cans we use are 400 ml (about 13 fl.oz).
    Good luck!

    Hello,
    I'm from Turkey. And I want to ask can I use Turkish homemade yogurt ? Because generally we make our yogurts at home.

    If you can make your yogurt with full fat cream, it would be a good option.

    What about Peanut Butter? Any kind

    For peanut butter make sure there is no added sugar. It should only be peanuts (and salt).

    Yes, you can use almond milk. You can also use any berry you prefer. Most other fruit will be too high carb. You can use the recipe search tools to filter for dairy free recipes.

    The nutritional info on this recipe seems way off. When I enter it into CM it has way more carbs, way less fat and way less calories. How are you getting 43 g of fat out of 7 oz of coconut milk? Did you leave out an ingredient?

    The keto diet sounds similar to the high protein diets from the early 80's. I lost a lot of weight on one of those diets - it was fantastic. Of course as soon as I went off the diet I gained even more weight than I had lost. Not related to the diet, but I now have a plethora of food allergies... Almonds, all dairy, avocados, all eggs, beef, mushrooms.... So the keto diet looks great, but how can I substitute for my sensitivities? You even use almond flour and almond milk.... I can't tolerate them. Should I simply give up?

    There are substitutions for these ingredients, or you can find different recipes. Coconut milk is a good substitute for almond milk.

    Different locations and brands may call the same product by different names. If the coconut milk is low fat, try coconut cream instead.

    I find the measurements in recipes very odd. Sometimes within the same recipe amounts are on weight(g) and then volume (ml)
    I wish there was more consistency in the amounts

    This is 10g carbs.

  21. Elizabeth
    Why is the serving size for the coconut milk in grams and not mls? I don’t know how much to use.
  22. Elizabeth
    The coconut milk is in grams and the blueberries are in mls. Should these be swapped around perhaps?

    How is a 10gram carb smoothie "okay" for a keto diet? Sounds good (though the lemon juice is a bit weird), but that would use up a lot of carbs before lunch!

    This is a moderate low carb recipe, as indicated by the orange, rather than green circle around the carb count number. You can read more about keto, moderate and liberal low carb at this link - https://www.dietdoctor.com/how-low-carb-is-low-carb

    This was really good. Had to improvise with the remaining almond milk & heavy whipping cream I had available, threw in some ice cubes to get it frosty. Yum. I miss ice cream but recipes like this helps.

    How much fat does the coconut milk in the US have? Or what is the milk to water ratio?

    400g can in Germany at 90% milk, 10% water is roughly 90g of fat.

    The one we use has 42 grams of fat, 4 grams protein, and 6 grams of carbs for the entire amount of coconut milk.
