If you’re like me and can’t seem to get enough coconut milk into your diet these days, here’s a new way to enjoy it – in ice cube format! These coconut milk ice cubes are such a simple hack that you’ll wonder why you didn’t think of it sooner.


Coconut milk is a staple for Paleo followers because it adds richness to foods in a way that mimics heavy cream. When you mix coconut milk into to items like soups and smoothies, you’ll upgrade both the taste and texture to make them deeply more satisfying. Loaded with fiber, B vitamins and healthy minerals, you can feel great about adding coconut milk to your diet on a daily basis.

When it comes to coffee, coconut oil is often the go-to choice: Blend it into hot organic coffee and get a frothy version of “bulletproof” Joe in your mug. But what’s the best way to spruce up your cold brew coffee?


Enter coconut milk ice cubes.

It’s important to shake your coconut milk really well before opening. You can also stir it or blend it before pouring into your ice cube tray to ensure it freezes evenly. Pop the tray into your freezer for at least three hours before adding a few cubes to your organic cold brew coffee. Voila! Your iced coffee will become creamier as the cubes melt – a huge improvement over regular old ice cubes any day.

Of course, coconut milk ice cubes can be used for much more than coffee. Try blending them into your smoothies, or even melting them into curries. Get creative!
