We like the odd thai curry, and have been getting frustrated with the price of the canned coconut milk. It's currently about £1.90 a can. With a little careful shopping we found that you can get it for 30p a can in Tesco at the moment. It's not with all the other coconut milk though, it's with the world foods. Hopefully there will be some other nice people out there who can benefit from having a hunt. This appears to be normal price, it's not a yellow label.

In the Tesco in Yeovil, it's near the back of the store, next to the staff only bit near the pasta.

Yes and very nice stuff it is too. I stocked up the other day (Newcastle store) and had my first green curry with it last night....mmmmmmmmm. It was in the 'world food' section there too. They also have another lot of coconut milk for 50p
#2
Also great for lovely summer fruit smoothies mmmmmmmmmmmmmm

HOT!
#3
Ah I've not seen any 50p cans.

Oooh smoothies, haven't put coconut milk in those before. Now I need some nice fruit! Wonder what those pine berries would be like with coconut and some voddy!
#4
You were paying £1.90 a can? Where was this, Harrods?
Don't think I have ever paid over 95p, and that's been when I have been stuck!

Regular lower pricing to keep an eye on at Lidl, Aldi, & Asda, with occasional offers at Netto too, and Home Bargains as well as local ethnic shops.
#5
It's been creeping up and up for the last year. I wasn't paying that for it, I refused. I just did without my Thai curries and went Indian instead.

will pop by kingston park thanks

Really nice :thumbsup:
And you can get low-fat milk for anyone watching their weight.

For a nice cold smoothie on a hot day (with any luck we'll have a few of them), blend up some frozen fruits - tropical ones work the best with coconut milk but you could try anything, then add the coconut milk and blend some more ;-) Obviously if you fancy some alcohol there is lots that would go, but Malibu works really well :p

Thanks, will have a look tonight
#9
Not sure if this link work, but if you type 'coconut milk' into the search while doing your Tesco grocery shop this one comes up for 30p, plus another for 54p. There is another type on offer at the mo for 50p which also does a low-fat version

Thanks, that a brilliant price. Will try the Axminster store...
#11
I went in this morning to buy some (before reading here) and paid £1.89 for some. So to the poster who thinks this is Harrods, think again. £1.89 is a standard 'across the board' supermarket price.

This is a bargain, but none for me in Cornwall.
#12
I can't believe anyone would pay £1.90 for a can of coconut milk :w00t:. This may help some who use it alot as an even cheaper alternative - which I always do, is to buy the KTC packets of creamed coconut. A 200g pack is around 23p in Asda (27p online at Tesco) and you just add 600mls of warm water, stir and then pour through a sieve - it takes no longer than opening a tin :thumbsup:.
#13
Good spot, im off to stock up !
#14
its £1.90 for the amoy one, and thats next to the thai section, there is island sun, which was 54p, and pride which was 30 p, but the pride stuff is nicer, since its thicker.


(had thai red for tea, lol)

I know Cornwall isn't a cheap place to live in, but I can get Organic Coconut milk for HALF that price, even online and in specialist shops. There are DOZENS of choices at way less than this:
http://www.google.co.uk/products?q=coconut+milk&oe=utf-8&client=firefox-a&show=dd&scoring=p

I would suspect Harrods would be way cheaper.
#16
Nope, we have those same standard prices up in Fife as well! I only stocked up on 47p cans when Aldi had them in specially and then also saw the 30p can at the weekend and bought one though haven't used it yet. Now with all this talk of Thai curries, I wish I was having that for my dinner tonight instead of roast beef! Mmmm.
#17
excellent find! thanks.
#18
£1.90, that's a mental price, 30p is awesome! ;)

Any idea what % of Coconut Milk this is? Good ones tend to be 80%.

Are you having a laugh. Cornwall and specialist shops in the same sentence. Youre obviously only a vistor and not a native. My nearest shop is 18 miles away (Tesco) little choice and little value.
My nearest proper supermarket is 100 mile round trip, but that's a Waitrose and well worth the effort.

The can says 75% coconut extract.
#21
fab deal!! ps: i think the only difference between the full fat version and half fat is the half fat has added water!! so you would be better buying full fat and adding water!
#22
great deal, coconut milk has gone up about 3x in the past year, I remember buying cans of Blue Dragon for around £0.70p and now like others have said its about £1.70!!
#23
This is not stocked in all Tesco stores. It's just the Extra stores (i.e. not Express or Local).

Correct.

Daughter cooked curry tonight (she lived in SE Asia for 18 months) - reckoned the 47p stuff I got from Aldi was better than Amoy (£1.30 last time I bought it but sounds like it's gone up again).

The Aldi one quoted a slightly lower % coconut but you'd never know.
#25
Great deal!
Will be making coconut cake for a friend's birthday soon!
#26
Is this proper coconut milk or one of the strange ones thickened with gum ?
Serious question. I usually stick with the Dunn's River brand because I really don't like the gum.
#27
I buy 2 cans a week of this and its never been £1.90....slight exageration by the OP I think.

However, still a bloody good deal so will be stocking up.
#28
I buy a can of coconut milk most weeks from Tesco most weeks and noticed the price creeping up, great spot. Amoy coconut milk is currently £1.93 per can in my local Tesco, no joke! OP is not exaggerating!

have been getting frustrated with the price of the canned coconut milk. It's currently about £1.90 a can.

£1.89 is a standard 'across the board' supermarket price.

Where on earth are you doing your shopping ?

Coconut Milk is around 60p a can, and always has been - http://groceries.asda.com/asda-estore/search/searchcontainer.jsp?trailSize=1&searchString=208360 (you'll probably need to open the link twice to see it...)
My local Tescos also sells the same Dunn's River cans in the "World Food" isle for the same price.

Then stop buying the Amoy, and buy the "Chaokoh" or "Dunn's River" instead.
If your store doesn't stock either, then go elsewhere :)

I only holiday in areas where the locals want you to be there, and there are many of those closer than Cornwall!

With prices like you quote, buy online at some of the independent retailers, and paying the postage would soon recoup the expense if buying a big enough quantity!

No exageration! this is from the tesco delivery website. It is the only option in our area. I think ill need to visit an extra store as they appear to have it at the 54p pride variety:

Amoy Rich/Creamy Coconut Milk 400Ml

£1.93 (£4.83/l)
#32
I've seen Tescos with the Amoy at £1.93 and then another brand at about 80p. Bit of a no brainer. But seriously over £1 for a can of coconut milk is ridiculous. £1.93 is just plain theft. Plus Amoy is probably the most overpriced asian brand with the worst tasting products.
#33
yes op is correct... coconut milk has been up in price.. i got this last night too...30p i a bargain!!
#34
Been buying this for a couple of years and the price seems to fluctuate. Very nice product.
#35
Forget the canned milk, creamed sachets and also the poor advice on the outer boxes of the creamed coconut blocks. There really is absolutely no need to strain or sieve it. It's wasteful and unnecessary. The blocks go around much further than any other coconut milk product.

Firstly, cut off a portion of the fat from the top of a creamed block and use this to fry the chicken, fish or meat of choice. place the remaining portion of the block (i.e the solid - minus the fat) into a pan of warmed water and stir until dissolved. Add straighht to curry.

I buy blocks at Tesco for 29p. Each block makes approx. 3 curries. Therefore they represent one third of the cost of the cans. You even have coconut oil included too, which incidentally, is one of the most stable fats to fry with. Unlike sunflower oil which easily becomes toxic when heated.

A hint on the Thai curry too...place a little lime zest in with your fresh ingredients (lemongrass, galangal, chili, garlic, shallots and coriander and a squirt of anchovy essence) then blend to a fine paste. I've been experimenting with 'locally available ingredients' for 20yrs and found this produces the best Thai curry by far. Works well for those of you that cannot buy Kaffir lime leaves locally. Galangal, if not available, can also be substituted for fresh ginger. Although the ginger is not as authentic.

I could write an encyclopaedia based just on this one post alone, but seeing I can't be bothered I will only take issue on a couple of points:

1. The several brands of coconut in block form I have bought in the past is a homogenous product, solid, but with no separate layers. It is something I have used in some Indian style food, but it's not a lot like a can of coconut milk in any shape or form. As I have mainly bought this stuff in ethnic Indian shops, I can only presume the product you are reffering to is different to what I have been buying for years!

2. While not now a mainstream subscriber to the hysteria re: heart disease & saturated fat, as it is a lot more complicated than that; but most people are, and most people would die of shock if they realised the fat content!
As to Sunflower oil becoming "toxic" I am presuming you mean the conversion to Trans-fat?
Repeated heating does this, unlikely to happen if frying in "new" sunflower oil, which is used and not "recycled" like it is if you use it in a deep fryer.

3. Coconut milk can be "split" (by heating) in the same way as you suggest with the block, and used as frying medium, as seen used by Thai cooks - tried it, and oddly enough it doesn't seem to have much effect on the final flavour as you would imagine - I was very surprised, but it's a fiddly process that isn't worth the bother of emulating, and I suppose it is used this way by Thais simply because it's a way of frying without using any other fat f you haven't any to hand.
