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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  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'm really not familiar with coconut cream so I can't compare it to the real thing but I was making two recipes for ZWT7 that ask for it. I used this to make Recipe #202718 and Recipe #417322 and it worked beautifully in both. If I ever need coconut cream again I'll surely use this recipe.

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.
