Thank you. What I got was an organic canned coconut milk. Unfortunately, shaking it didn't mix it back together. The solid part was really solid. I couldn't stir it in or shake it in and could barely cut it with a spoon to use it. Guess next time I will get it from Sprouts or Natural Grocers.

I think it depends on the manufacturer.

"Coconut milk comes in two varieties, thick and thin. As the simmered liquid sits, the thick coconut milk will rise to the top and the thin coconut milk, which has a more translucent appearance, remains at the bottom. Most coconut milk sold commercially in cans will naturally separate in this manner during storage and transportation. The two phases can easily be mixed back together by stirring or shaking the can. ... A second type of coconut milk has emerged on the market as consumers are increasingly looking for dairy alternatives. This type of coconut milk has a much lower fat content than traditional canned coconut milk and is often sold in large cartons. This type of coconut milk is used like dairy milk and poured over cereal, into coffee, or drank straight as a beverage. Most recipes calling for "coconut milk" refer to the canned variety and not the dairy milk alternative.

Is coconut milk supposed to be liquid or half solid? I thought liquid, but both cans I have opened are half solid like the solid coconut oil. I was trying to make the coconut chicken Thai soup and I ended up with a watery, unflavorful soup on my chicken after using that coconut milk. How do I get it liquid and not like a white colored water? It has an expiration date of Jan 2020, so shouldn't be bad. (I opened the 2nd can to give my soup some flavor. Also added more ginger and chili paste)
