Expert Tips

  • Reduced-fat (lite) coconut milk usually has 50% less fat than regular coconut milk and is thinner in consistency, but still has that wonderful coconut milk flavor.
  • Need help cutting a mango? Score the skin lengthwise into fourths with a knife, and peel like a banana. Cut the peeled mango lengthwise close to both sides of the seed, then cut into pieces. If you don't have a mango, use a large peach or nectarine instead.
