Savory Coconut Milk Recipes To Spice Up Winter’s End (PHOTOS)
Coconut milk is amazing. And if you read the research on its health effects, well in can be all things to all people.
For example, this research (www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10948851) showed how terrible it is for your lipid profile and therefore your heart. “the possible negative effects of the saturated fatty acids … from all coconut constituents suggest that the coconut milk, oil and cream should not be used on a regular basis in adults.”
And, because objective science always makes sense, this research (www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15329324) showed just how wonderful that very same coconut oil is for you lipid profile, and therefore your heart. “The results demonstrated the potential beneficiary effect of virgin coconut oil in lowering lipid levels in serum and tissues and LDL oxidation by physiological oxidants.”
It’s good for you, it’s bad for you. How confusing!
So, while they’re figuring out who’s study beats who’s … just take the coconut milk and use it to make polenta. It’s amazing, and dirt simple. Use a ratio of coconut milk to corn meal of 1:3. Bring the milk to a simmer, sprinkle in the corn meal, stirring, a little at a time until it’s all in. Add a little butter, salt, pepper, and if you have peppered salami, chop it up in there and your heart will be truly happy indeed!!
