Can coconut milk substitute for evaporated milk?
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 milk 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.

How much fresh milk can be substituted for dry milk powder?
If you're making a quart of milk from powder, it takes a quart of fresh to substitute for it. If you're making a glass of milk from powder, it takes a glass of milk to substitute for it. There is no substitute for the concentrated powder so you have to figure it in equal quantities of either fresh milk or finished milk made from powder.

Can coconut milk or creme de coconut be used in recipes in place of whole milk?
I'm sure you could, as it would act the same as milk. However, you probably want to cut the amount or thin the coconut milk a bit, as it's so much richer. Be careful. Milk contains fats that may be necessary for some recipes to work. It also contains proteins that react with eggs, flours, etc. Coconut milk and creme de coconut are entirely different food products and won't react chemically the same way. If all you needed the milk for originally was moisture then the substitution may be fine. I'd experiment first when it didn't matter if it fails. Also, if using coconut milk to a savory recipe, add it as close to the end, and try not to boil -- to prevent curdling.

Can you use regular milk instead of condensed milk in recipes?
Condensed milk and regular (fresh) milk are very different ingredients. Condensed milk is much thicker and sweeter-- it has a syrupy consistency and can be eaten with a spoon. Fresh milk is very different, not as thick or sweet and drinkable. Regular milk is not a good substitute for condensed milk.

Asked in Coconut
Is coconut milk when diluted as good for you as coconut water?
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.
