Yes!!!!!! It is amazing! I only buy Silk Brand products and when I saw Silk Pure Coconut Milk on the shelf I had to try it. I LOVE IT! I make a crock pot porridge and usually use Almond or Soy milk or a combination of each. This time, I used Coconut milk and my oatmeal tastes so good! Try it, you'll like it!
Much prefer So Delicious unsweetened coconut milk. Silk adds evaporated cane juice, for 6g of sugars. I try to avoid sugars/fats so Silk doesn't work for me. I also much prefer the consistency of SD over Silk, and it tastes better in cooking. I can't tell the difference in taste between SD and milk in my cappuccino which I can't live without :)
Not a favorite. I stick to Almond Breeze brand UNSWEETENED almond milk. The vanilla and original are both great. Can always add stevia for sweetness.

Pure Coconut Milk works great with baking. I use it in my baked oatmeal all the time and it adds great flavor.

I quite like the silk coconut milk. Added it to coffee and I didn't need any sugar. Also like it as an after dinner treat with a bit of chocolate. I also love almond milk, much better (to me anyway) than soy milk. I can drink the chocolate soy milk, but the plain has too much of a bitter aftertaste for me.
I love Silk Pure Coconut Milk. It's great on just a bowl of berries, or my personal favorite, I use 2/3 to 3/4 cup of coconut milk to cook my oatmeal in the morning, and then use the rest of the cup as topping. It brings a delicious sweetness to the oatmeal. I haven't tried it for baking yet, but do know they have a few recipes on their site.

I love So Delicious coconut milk, it's got medium chain fatty acids which make a great recovery snack after a long workout! I also make my own coconut milk "cheese" for pizza and mac & cheese with it.

I love coconut milk; however I try to limit my intake as it is not as nutritious as other dairy milk alternatives.

We tried it this week; I was disappointed since I really like their Soy Silk products. It tasted like very watered-down coconut juice. We will not buy it again unless they advertise they have improved the flavor.

We have used the Almond Breeze brand for about 4 years now. Have tried the Hemp Milk and Potato Milk which are both nice - but really like the Coconut Milk.

AuntKathy- I don't know what the Almond Joy creamer calorie count is, but I've become a fan of International Delight's Skinny Caramel Macchiato Creamer. It's got 30 calories in one Tbsp, but I don't mind cutting that with a little skim milk, since it is really creamy. It's very yummy!
I like coconut milk, but my husband is not a fan. He prefers almond or soy. I've also found the nuttiness of flax and hemp milks to be awesome in smoothies. That Almond Joy recipe sounds delicious. I hadn't thought to blend up those flavors, thanks for the tip!
I am looking for a good coffee creamer substitute. I don't like milk in my coffee and I had been using the Almond Joy Creamer but with lots of calories and no nutritional value I have decided to switch. For a couple of weeks I was using 1% milk and adding vanilla and then I realized that vanilla has an alcohol content in it! Anybody have ideas? I lack protein, calcium and fiber in my diet. Thanks!

I tried the plain coconut milk and the vanilla coconut milk. I like drinking it alone and in smoothies. Still 90 calories for the vanilla silk flavor and 60 calories for the plain. 2% milk is 110 calories per serving. I am trying to get away from milk and milk products in the vegan diet. Not too successful yet. I also had ground beef with tacos for lunch at Ronald McDonald house for lunch. I don't think I can eat the meals provided here to stay successfully vegan. I think I have to pick and choose carefully and try and supplement with my own vegan groceries, but it is expensive buying groceries for 2 different households, while I am in Denver with the baby and my husband is in Avon.
I tried it and it's very coconutty tasting. Good in smoothies, but not for coffee, tea, baking, or cooking. And it's not made with organic coconuts, either. I prefer So Delicious Coconut Milk. It's got a very light and refreshing taste that doesn't change the flavor of things you make with it. I'm really enjoying their new Sugar-Free Vanilla flavor, too, and my little one just loves the chocolate.
I've only tried So Delicious unsweetened coconut milk, which I use for cooking; not so good for just drinking straight, but if you're adding some sweetener to it, it's a great option, highly nutritious and non-gmo. I love almond breeze unsweetened vanilla. I also recently discovered unsweetened vanilla hemp milk, which i really like. I"m going to have to try your almond joy smoothie, though...

I don't remember which one I tried but did not like it.I like hood countdown or unsweetened almond milk and have no lactose issues with either.
That sounds very yummy! I haven't bought that brand but bought the SO Delicious brand of coconut milk and my husband and kids don't like it too much. Then again, they eat high fat/calorie foods so things that taste great to me taste boring or not buttery/cheesy/fatty enough to their tastebuds.

I just recently have taken a liking to Silk Coconut Milk (sweetened & unsweetned).......I love milk, but I am lactose intolerant and I have tried Almond Milk and Soy Milk (a lil to thick) and my taste buds really just like the Coconut Milk......when I get my 'sweet tooth' urges, I partially freeze 8 ozs of the coconut milk, add 2 tbsp of sugar free nestle quik, and a sprinkle of coconut and blend.....it makes the best 'almond joy' in a shake form......mmmmmmmmm
