The creamy texture and sweetness of coconut milk may taste like a treat, but it is highly nutritious and good for you.

Coconut milk comes from the fleshy white inside of a mature brown coconut. It is a high-calorie food with over 90% of its calories coming from saturated fats known as medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs). These MCTs are considered good fat.  They contain lauric acid and small amounts of other fatty acids such as capric and caprylic acid.

Additional benefits to coconut milk:

  • It has hydrating electrolytes
  • Is naturally high in vitamins and minerals
  • Has been renowned for its health benefits
  • You can add it to your diet by replacing dairy with this milk base in your favorite coffee beverage


Coconut milk is a great alternative to dairy and can help keep your body happy and healthy. Give coconut milk a try the next time you order your favorite coffee from Human Bean!
