Recipes

Easy Coconut Milk - Mon 1st Jun 2015

You need 200 g desiccated coconut and 300ml hot water for around 200 ml coconut milk.
Put the desiccated coconut into a bowl and pour over the hot water. Leave to soak for at least 10 minutes, and allow it to cool thoroughly. Strain the coconut through a clean muslin cloth (or a sieve) and squeeze it dry.

Add the coconut milk to a curry for extra richness, or blend with a banana for a truly tropical smoothie.

Coconut Ice - Tue 29th Oct 2013

My mum made this a lot when we were children, she often added food colouring and poured in layers, making a very colourful sweet treat.

875 grams or 2 lb of granulated sugar.

100 grams or 4 oz of coconut.

210 ml of rice milk.

25 grams of vegan margarine.

Colouring and flavouring if desired, eg green colouring with mint flavouring, pink with rose.

Add milk and sugar to a pot and heat slowly until sugar is dissolved.

Add the margarine and coconut and bring to the boil, stirring all the time.

The temperature should reach 240 degrees, a good test is to drop a small amount into a glass of water, leave for 1 minute and if it can be formed into a soft ball between the fingers, it is ready.

Remove from the heat and beat, the texture will thicken and become grainy.

Pour the mixture into a buttered tray and allow to cool, cut into squares and serve.

Coconut Shortbread - Mon 28th Oct 2013

This recipe melts in the mouth, is easy to make and is a change from ordinary shortbread. My husband loves the end result and even though he is Scottish, prefers this to ordinary shortbread.

3 oz or 85 grams of vegan margarine, or butter if not vegan.

2 oz or 55 grams of dessicated coconut.

3 oz or 85 grams of plain flour.

2 oz or 55 grams of caster sugar.

2 tablespoons of rice flour or semolina.

Preheat the oven to 190 degrees centigrade.

Cream the margarine and sugar in a large bowl, sieve the flours into the mix, add the coconut and form into a dough. Knead the dough thoroughly.

Press the dough onto an ungreased baking tray, forming a neat round.

Mark into sections using a butter knife them prick all over with a fork.

Bake for 35 - 40 minutes.

You can also roll out the dough and cut out rounds but remember to adjust the cooking time as they will take less time to bake.

Lovely coconut...not too dry like other brands

Love to make biscuits with this.

Excellent price and great for lots of recipes. Has a lovely flavour

Great to keep in the cupboard - Sun 6th Oct 2013

This is a great store cupboard ingredient, 1 bag lasts quite a long time. I use it to sprinkle on top of cereal/porridge. I add it to curries to give a 'coconutty' flavour. This one has no sulphite preservatives which is good and also acts as an alternative to a tin of coconut milk when you don't have one- just pour on boiling water and let it sit for a while and then strain the water and squeeze the milk out of wet dessicated coconut. A lovely tip which I copied from a restaurant I went to- roast any type of squash then near the end of roasting add dessicated coconut sprinkled on top and a small amount of chilli powder and put back in the oven to bake until the coconut browns slightly.

Great Product - Wed 11th Sep 2013

Good quality, well priced and the product itself has a host of uses in my baking obsession.

Not-too-dry coconut - Wed 3rd Apr 2013

Nice-tasting coconut, and not overly dry. Useful for adding to chia seeds to make porridge (2 dessertspoons or tablespoons chia seeds, 200 ml milk - I use homemade almond and macadamia - 2 dessertspoons dessicated coconut, 1 teaspoon ground pumpkin seeds, 2 dessertspoons or tablespoons goji berries. Mix together, preferably for an hour before eating so the chia has time to absorb the milk. I usually make it the night before, put in the fridge, but only add the gojis in the morning, an hour before breakfast when I take it out of the fridge, so they retain some of their chewy texture).

Just the right size flakes and don't have that horrible chemical sweetener aftertaste that supermarket brands do. Taste great and nice to use in currys, smoothies and cakes!

- Sat 23rd Jun 2012

This is a lovely product - the flakes of coconut are just right; not too small and crumb-like. I use it to coat truffles and to add to biscuit recipes. It can be tricky to find organic desiccated coconut, so I am pleased to have found it on Goodness Direct!

A little goes a long way - Wed 4th Jan 2012

I haven't cooked with dessicated coconut for years, but fancied making some macaroons...I went for the almond variety, as the jury is out on how good coconut is for your cholesterol levels...but just a spoonful of this coconut in a batch of biscuits was enough to give a beautifully moist and chewy taste...I haven't tried it yet, but I bet it's fab in porridge !

A vital and healthy product. I'm such a fan of the new coconut health movement. Better when used with a low carb sugar diet

Very Buttery - Tue 19th Oct 2010

Turn a rice pudding into a very creamy and buttery dessert by adding a bit of coconut while it is cooking. You will be surprised by the rich dairy taste and smell and the thick creaminess of the texture. All dairy-free of course!
