Just opened a 14oz can of coconut milk for a recipe using 2-3 Tablespoons.
What can I do with the leftover? How long will it last in the fridge? Can I freeze it?
Just saw this recipe for Coconut Brigadeiros which would use up 1/2 cup.
Coconut milk shampoo
Another vote for freezing and curries. Frozen coconut milk cubes are good in smoothies, too. Thawed, it's a nice addition chocolate cake or frosting, waffles, pancakes, and adding some to a hot bath is an amazing moisturizer.
Freeze in an ice cube tray. 2-3 Tblsp. of coconut milk comes up quite frequently in my kitchen. I just open a can and dispense into the tray on purpose!
I freeze it. It can be frozen for quiet long.
Coconut milk is used in a lot of curries from the Indian subcontinent.
My coconut milk never lasts that long simply because I cook a lot of curries - I almost always have an opened container of coconut milk in the fridge. If yours smells or tastes rancid, toss it.
it also will last for a couple weeks at least if you switch it into a tupperware.
i like mixing a bit into my yogurt and berries.
It freezes just fine.
