For the Matcha Mint Ice Creme it calls for Lite Coconut Milk. Is this only for health reasons or will this work with full fat coconut milk?
Sam is a trusted home cook.
Chops is a trusted home cook.
The recipe author states,"I found that cans of light coconut milk contain enough fat to add a rich creaminess to the ice cream -- but not so creamy that it overpowers the freshness of the mint and matcha (such as full-fat cans of coconut milk have done for me in the past)." I assume its for the consistency than a lower calorie preference.
from lamb chops' quote, it sounds like the author thinks full fat coconut milk has a flavor that overpowers the matcha etc.
If all you have is full fat, but want to use lite, lite coconut milk is just a watered down version of the full fat kind - I always buy cans of full fat, as they are usually the same price and you get more out of them, and use about 1/3 can mixed with 2/3 can of water in place of 1 can of lite.
