Is there a recipe in particular that you are referring to?

In general, you can substitute coconut milk with a dairy alternative.  Although we don’t generally recommend dairy, we understand that it’s a staple for some families.   Our preferred dairy substitute would be the Greek yogurt.

1 cup Greek yogurt

1 cup evaporated milk

½ cup low-fat cream + ½ cup skimmed milk

1 cup heavy cream/full cream milk


If you have a good blender, you could try:

1 cup unsalted cashews + 1 cup of water (soak your cashews overnight making sure they are completely covered in water.  Rinse and add to a blender with equal parts water.  Blend until smooth.  Add more water to desired consistency)

Hope this helps!
