Why Coconut Milk Over Whole Milk ?
Whole Milk is Not the Problem, The whole milk which we get in packet or in Bottle that has the problem.
Whole milk is Taken from cows by forcing them and Large Amount of Toxic Injections are use so They can produce large amount of milk. This cows are grown By using chemeical rich foods and their milk producing capcity is increase By Using Toxic Injections.
Results Of That Milk Produced By that Cow is Not Healthy and not Good for our Babies Devlopement. This Milk Bring lot of diseases with them which affects our body for longer period.
Instead of That Coconut Milk is best Substitue for Cow Milk Which Directly Comes From Mother Nature. This is The Food Which Nature Gives us.
There are so any other options like almond Milk , cashew Milk But they are not That Much Not Economic For everyone. But 1 average size Coconut Gives us 1 Litre Milk which cost us same as bottle Of 1 Litre Whole Milk
Top 3 health benefits of coconut milk
According to research, coconut milk has Three major health benefits.
Increased stamina: It is rich in protein and electrolytes, which can help with endurance and fatigue. It also helps in muscle development.
Improved immune system: Coconuts include lauric acid, a lipid that boosts the immune system and reduces infection risk. Anti-inflammatory effects are also found in lauric acid. In certain types of cancer, lauric acid may cause cancer cell death. Antibacterial and antifungal activities are also present.
Promotes weight loss : Coco milk includes medium-chain triglycerides, which are thought to boost energy levels by causing thermogenesis, or the generation of energy. Thermogenesis has been shown to help people lose weight and slim down their waistlines. Medium-chain triglycerides improve insulin sensitivity, which aids weight loss. Insulin is a hormone that breaks down glucose and regulates blood sugar levels.

- Spices. I like to make a cinnamon and nutmeg “chai” version.
- Extracts are always a simple way to improve. Add a teaspoon of vanilla, lemon, orange, or whatever flavour you want!
Tools To Make
Blender. Because coconut is so easy to break down, any blender will suit (especially compared to breaking down nuts for milk).
Cheesecloth or a nut milk strainer Bag If you plan on creating a lot of homemade milk, I highly recommend investing in a nut milk strainer bag. This keeps the pulp contained within the bag and is reusable (plus points!).
