From pies to drinks, coconut milk – one of the hottest staples in cooking today – adds a delicate flavor and rich texture to every dish it meets. Made from the first-pressing of fresh, ripe coconut meat, Thai Kitchen Coconut Milk is the perfect go-to ingredient for this year's big feast. And it's naturally dairy- and gluten-free, which means everyone can enjoy it.
