Review of Imperial Dragon's Coconut Milk
As you all know, I do a lot of cooking and baking. Well, I decided to do a West Indian dish that called for coconut milk. I haven't bought coconut milk since I left California. But, looking around Walmart, I found a couple of different brands of coconut milk, but the one that caught my eye was Imperial Dragon's brand.
Imperial Dragon has a very eye catching label, it is the mid range pricing, not too cheap and not over the top expensive. It is a good sized can (13.5 fluid ounces, to be precise). So, I picked it up for the dish I was preparing. Needless to say, I was exceptionally happy that I did pick up this brand of coconut milk...The first thing I noticed, beyond the brightly coloured packaging, was the wonderful natural coconut smell that blossomed from the can. It smelled like fresh coconuts, not that artificial crap. Anyway, it had a wonderful consistency, nearly that of coconut cream! It was thick and luscious, silky. Perfect for the dish I was making. When I added it to my recipe, it blended well, and gave my dish a richness that I have not found in using other brands. The flavour it added was amazing...!! All I can say is that I can't wait to try other products from this company. Because after trying just one product, you can imagine I am already sold on this brand!
Go out and grab yourself some of this coconut milk...put it in ice cube trays, freeze it up and use the cubes in smoothies, or in tea for added richness and health benefits. It also works well if you are baking and want to add regular milk...use this coconut milk instead. It adds incredible depth of flavour, it's better for you than milk, and the health benefits are out of this world!
What more can I say? Stock up and try it for yourself!
