Home dehydrated coconut milk
Hey, you divas of dehydrating, what happens when you spread a can of coconut milk on dehydrator trays? I cannot seem to find powdered coconut milk that does not have casein in it. I was told that the casein is to keep the solids from separating. Just wondered if anyone has tried it, and what results they've had.
http://www.amazon.com/Lets-Do-Organic-Creamed-Coconut/dp/B00113ZZ5U/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1322520587&sr=8-1Diane you can find this in many natural food stores - I know I have seen it at PCC and Marlenes in Federal Way and if I am right also at Whole Foods. Treat it just like coconut cream powder!
At least that's in a tetrapak, and not a can! So, just take a smaller container of this along, and pour/scoop it into whatever I'm making--cocoa, soup, mix it in rehydrated pumpkin bark?
It is actually bar like - it is neat, you can cut/scrape off what you need :-) Shelf stable too!
I've used the creamed coconut and it works well enough and is casein free. It's a little heavy but good calorie to weight ratio. It reminds me of very hard fudge (for lack of a better description). The stuff I buy is wrapped in a waxy paper and is in a box. Sometimes you can find coconut milk powder without casein but it can be pricey.
This might be a good starting place for a trail bar.
