Coconut milk with its creamy texture and light sweetness on the tongue just seems too delicious to be good for us... but it’s actually been called a miracle liquid. Indeed it can boost our immune system to keep us healthy and ward off disease.
A coconut could look like a head with the three tiny indents, resembling eyes and a mouth, on a hairy shell. The word coco means a grin in Spanish and monkey face in Portuguese. Marco Polo preferred to call the coconut the Pharoah’s nut even though it's really a fruit. If worthy for the royalty, then we say worthy for us. Laird Hamilton’s lifestyle and performance ethics led to developing food sources with this nutrient packed fruit.
From fruit to milk: Coconut milk is made mostly from the liquid that’s stored in the white meat. When you crack open a fresh coconut the milky white liquid that pours out is coconut water and when you blend it with the coconut meat, you get coconut milk – a thicker, creamier, more delicious liquid filled with nutrients. It is powderized first and then integrated within the various Laird Superfood products for accessibility and portability. Coconut milk is also free from dairy, lactose, soy, nuts or grains.
A growing group of researchers and scientists are praising the healing and restorative effects of coconuts.
We look forward to future studies that provide more evidence for coconut milk a possible miracle food. In the meanwhile we are enjoying our morning routine by adding coconut oil, coconut milk and coconut sugar to our coffee!
