Can coconut water substitute for coconut milk?
No, it will not give the same flavour. Coconut water is a thin, watery liquid that tastes sugary but not incredibly coconutty. Coconut milk has the pulp added and is a thick, white, creamy liquid with a strong coconut flavour.

Thanks for the feedback!
It is thinner than milk, but tastes richer than cream, so adding rice starch balances it out a bit.
By bagged coconut I presume you mean dried coconut, if that is the case then yes you can. If the recipe calls for creamed coconut then mix enough water with the dried coconut …to meet the consistency, if coconut milk is required then use more water until the desired consistency.
Diluted coconut cream (dilute by about 1/3, but the packet will usually have directions on diluting). There are no more close substitutes apart from that.
try mixing those canned coconut strings with a little bit of water and a little bit of milk
nope. coconut water is the juice of the coconut (the liquid that comes out when you crack open a coconut). coconut milk is made from the meat of the coconut and water blended …together and then drained.
Yes. Coconut cream and coconut milk is made from fresh shredded coconuts that are than pressed to release the liquid. The only difference being coconut cream is the first pres…s and the most pure, while coconut milk usually has some water added to get the last of the liquid out. You can think of it in the same way as Extra Virgin Olive Oil and normal Olive Oil. With EVO being the first press and normal Olive Oil being the second.
No, coconut milk and evaporated milk have very different consistencies. Evaporated milk is milk that has about 60% of the water removed which is why it is so thick. Coconut mi…lk is a much more watery milk, which has a coconut flavor. A good substitute for evaporated milk would be using dry milk powder and adding only 40% of the water recommended, or else use buttermilk. Hope this helps.
The substitute for coconut milk would depend on the recipe. In many baked goods and sauces, evaporated milk might be an acceptable substitute.
No, coconut milk is very different in thickness, taste, and texture and is completely different from coconut water.
Sweetened condensed milk
Probably not, they're both very different consistencies and fat contents. A better substitution would be butter.
yes. I am not sure I would completely agree that coconut milk is a good as coconut water when diluted. However Coconut milk is still great, yes but is higher in saturated fat… that coconut water. Nonetheless coconut milk is good for you because while its does contain saturated fats this fat is easily metabolized by the body and also contains a high amount of Lauric acid (something good for you) same substance you will find in mothers milk. Coconut water on the other hand also great doesn't contain as much Lauric acid as it's fat free but it's loaded with electrolytes, potassium and magnesium. Some even claim it's a substitute for your favourite sport energy drink but that debatable. However if you are ever in a pinch and need quick re-hydration coconut water can be taken intravenously. Personally I wouldn't confuse the two; while drink /concoctions can be made from the milk I believe the most refreshing and nutritious beverage of the two is pure and natural coconut water.
Yes it can be used by a process called pasturisation.
Because it is white in color, like milk.
No. Condensed milk is sweetened; coconut milk is not. The viscosity is not the same as well.
