I used Low-fat Heavy Cream Substitute and the standard substitution for coconut cream to come up with this. I tried this recipe out in Coconut Rice and Vegetable Thai Green Curry with good results.

  1. Combine and in a blender. Puree for 5 minutes or until smooth.
  2. Most of the time Coconut Cream is sweet so you can add the sugar if you want.
  3. The above recipe is for Coconut Cream to make Coconut Milk Substitute: For 1 cup, use 3 tablespoons "low-fat coconut cream substitute" plus hot water or warm low-fat milk to equal 1 cup.

I was in the middle of preparing a curry dish that called for coconut cream and didn't want to run to the store. This worked like a charm. Thanks much for posting. I will save this to use again instead of the higher fat and more expensive product.
