From breakfast to dinner to decadent desserts, here are 50 Ways to Use Canned Coconut Milk!Got a few cans of coconut milk hanging out in the cupboard? From breakfast to dessert, you can find a recipe to use it up in this collection of 50 ways to use canned coconut milk!

Canned coconut milk is one of those ingredients I always assume I’m out of. Nearly every week at the grocery store I pick up another can, only to arrive home and realize I have five cans in the pantry already. Recently, I decided I needed to start making a dent in my coconut milk stash, so I’ve been making Turkey and Butternut Squash Curry and Tropical Mint Smoothies like they’re going out of style.

In need of some other ideas (and a way to use the leftover coconut milk once I’ve opened the can), I assembled 50 more recipes to use as inspiration. I hope these keep you from being a coconut milk hoarder and help you avoid the dreaded leftover conundrum!
