I have not bought coconut milk in a while but I'd usually spend some time and read the cans to see the percentage of coconut milk used.
You can shake it as well. I don't much like the hard coconut cream sold like cream cheese.
If I did not have the time to check percentage of coconut milk on each brand and figure out best bang for the buck, I'd usually go with this brand.

Wholefoods 365 Organic. After I tried this, not going back to anything else.
About half always sets solid in the fridge overnight. The rest becomes drinking water.

NOT centre of Univer…
Make sure you buying the higher or regular fat and not the light. Also, check the ingredients the ones that just list coconut milk with no fillers has the the most cream. I can’t rememebr the good brands but rooster is not one of them if you want the cream.
On a 'smart' device that isn't always so smart. So please forgive the autocorrects and typos. If it bothers you, then don't read my posts, but don't waste my time correcting me. If you can get past the typos, then my posts generally have some value.

Yeap. Just last week I made Tiramisu and used coconut cream. Made the cream with couple of cans of WF 365 milk. Whipped up real nice.
Not the lite stuff. Like I said before, it sets real good.

In my KitchenAid with the whipping attachment. Do the same thing as you would with whipping cream. No difference.

For Pina coladas I usually buy coconut milk instead of cream of coconut which I find way too sweet. I just keep skimming the cream on top.

Saying that OP, I never had your problem unless the can was shaken or somehow agetated. After I skim the cream on top I put the can in the fridge for more cream to form. After I can't get much cream I just drink the watery milk.

I like Aroy-D. It's the only brand I've found with no fillers or preservatives.

I like Aroy-D too...I buy the coconut milk "for dessert" variety and it is a bit thicker. They also offer a handy 165ml size.
