    Hi Melissa. Can you possibly recommend a can or jarred coconut milk that does not have guar gum in it? I can’t seem to find one. I’ve been scouring Amazon and the web today with no luck. Thank you.

      Lori, most recipes can be converted to dairy free. Using almond or coconut milk in the place of regular milk, the thick part of canned coconut milk for cream, ghee or coconut oil for butter, etc. Feel free to ask me about a certain recipe if you are in question. Hope this helps!

    Hi Melissa, I’m from Canada so ordering coconut cream concentrate from Tropical Traditions would cost me 87 dollars for 2 32 oz. jars! Is there a difference between coconut cream concentrate and coconut manna or plain coconut cream?

    I am a huge fan of your cookbooks! Every recipe I have tried, I LOVED!


    • satisfyingeats says

      Yes, they should be the same Annick. Wow, $87… that’s crazy!! I’m so glad you are enjoying my cookbooks!

        I get the coconut cream powder on Amazon- yes there is cream as well as milk powder !! might be a better option for our Canadain friend

    • satisfyingeats says

      Holly, I no longer use Kal. I now use Stevia Select for that very reason. I need to update this page, sorry.

    I just found your page and am in LOVE. Thank you for all the work you put into everything. Just curious do you know where I can buy heavy whipping cream without carrageenan? I have asked my hubby to get me your cookbooks for Christmas. WAHOO!!!! You have a beautiful family. Have a blessed day. Also is honey okay as long as it is local raw honey?
