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.
You named my favorite candy bar and made it accessible for my diet! Thanks for the great Almond Joy treat!!!

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
