    Thai curry - coconut milk substitute?

    I adore thai red and green curries, but I've just checked on the SW site and a tin of coconut milk is 39 syns!, even if I split into 4 meals, that's alot of syns.

    Does anyone have any thai curry recipe suggestions please with a replacement for the coconut milk?

    TIA MM

    I haven't tried this yet, but I read a thread on another forum where people (one of them was actually Thai and says her family cannot tell the difference...) use soya milk + coconut essence instead of cocount milk. You can use this as a HEx A and not even count the syns

    what a good idea, do you know where she got the coconut essence?
    Trying hard not to fail,but if I do it's not the end of the world as long as I pick myself up and get back on track.

    Back on plan for the last time, have lost over 5 stones since March 2012.
    Was class greatest loser this year.
    Losses slowing down a bit now, but target is in sight :-)

    Oops - sorry. Only just seen this.

    Coconut essence is really hard to find! I ended up ordering it online from Jane Asher Party Cakes. See link:

    JANE ASHER Party Cakes | Edibles - Flavourings | Coconut

    It's quite expensive, but the bottle will last you years (any more than 1 drop of the stuff is overpowering...!)

    I managed to add it my basket but I had to go to the homepage and then navigate back to the flavourings page. Give that a try and see if it works for you too.

    Or it's also available here although given the price it's not likely to be the same quality flavouring as the JA one.

    I use skimmed milk and coconut essence. But almond milk is meant to work quite well also.
