I've used the Silk coconut milk and it was fine, I did notice a slight coconut taste. What I buy will depend on price and currently it's been cheaper to get the Fred Meyer brand of organic. Last time they were out and substituted the Silk light soy for the FM brand and 2/$5 was OK by me. I don't drink it plain. I mostly put it in my coffee. I'm trying to eliminate more and more of the dairy products such as whey that show up in so many things. I've not yet decided I'll give up butter...hey, it's nothing but the fat anyhow! In about a week I think I'll cut back on the turmeric I take and see if my joints complain.

Last summer I used a can of coconut milk, the stuff that you pretty much have to scoop out of the can, some almond milk, chocolate and sugar and made some non-dairy "ice cream" that was a big hit. My SIL tasted it and got the ice cream attachment for the KitchenAid! The stuff was kind of like fudgesicles. It won't keep though. It disappears really fast.
