Superfood Tip: Try a refreshing serving of coconut milk

Craig Daily Press Staff Report

These days, coconut milk can be found in a number of places, including gas stations, grocery stores and health food stores.

Coconut milk is a refreshing drink that’s packed full of nutrients and coconut flakes, if you so choose. Many stores will offer coconut milk with and without flakes, giving consumers options.

Most health food stores and some grocery stores offer coconut milk mixed with espresso for those who need a caffeine boost, and it tastes quite good.

Apparently, coconut milk is great for your immune health, according to Livestrong.com.

“Coconut milk contains lauric acid, antimicrobial lipids and capric acid, which have antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties. The body converts lauric acid into monolaurin, which may fight the viruses and bacteria that cause herpes, influenza and even HIV,” stated an article about coconut milk.
