Coconut powder, and lost pictures



Maggi_Coconut_Milk_Powder_150g_2Just a very quick post now, more later, to say that Approved Food have just emailed to say that they have the boxes of coconut milk I use, for £1.20 for 2 boxes of 150g. So if you like the mango and coconut curry, now would be a good time to get some. I would get some myself, but I bought 10 boxes last time and still have lots left.

Approved Food link on the right (or at the bottom if you are using a tablet/phone)

Also, for some reason best known to itself, WordPress chopped off most of the pictures from last nights post, so I have just put them back in if you want to have a look at the proposed kitchen layout

    Yes, I love AP. Trouble is, I am just getting somewhere close to taming supplies, and they tempt me with some great offer!
    That loaf cake sounds good, want to share the recipe?

    Approved food is great, isn’t it? I’ve recommended it to so many people. I got about 12 boxes coconut milk powder a while ago..make a yummy coconut & lime loaf cake regularly . Curry recipe looks great..will try spinach/chard growing in the garden & a large tin of mango pulp in my food stash..chick peas in thats me sorted(got chick peas in catering size tin from APP.Food much cheaper that way!)

    I have used it in pasta sauces, other curries, muffins and cakes and smoothies so far.
    Yogurt is intriquing, I wondered how it would set without the milk part so had a little google. There are loads of recipes out there for it.
    One of which is here This lady said to incubate it in an oven with the light on, no heat at all, so I think the slow cooker may be too hot for the probiotic. Unless your cooker can go really really low, 110F/43C is what she says.
    She also uses milk from a tin, so smoother than our milk from a packet. However, if it is soaked, as it would be while incubating, I don’t see why it wouldn’t be smooth and creamy enough

    If you can make it, it would be yummy. Go for it!

    Hi Lesley! Do you use this coconut milk powder for anything other than your curry? I occasionally make porridge with mine, but I’m toying with the idea of attempting homemade dairy free yogurt in the slow cooker. What do you think?
