Blue Monkey’s Coconut Milk beverage is a blend of organic coconut milk, sugar, and a few ingredients to thicken and emulsify the mixture. The liquid, which pours very thick and is milky looking, is surprisingly light in flavor. There is only a hint of coconut flavor to the mix, followed by a touch of sugar (approximately 17g per can), resulting in something that definitely exceeded our expectations. However, given its thickness, it’s hard to imagine drinking this on a regular basis or with food. Visually, the steel can that they are using is the same as many other coconut drinks on the market. But unlike most of these products, Blue Monkey has painted the can with a clean, modern design. Aside from being simple and easy to read, the product whets the appetite and, due in part to the use of a USDA Organic seal, has a premium feeling to it. Overall, this is a nice addition to the Blue Monkey lineup, but it feels like something that will have niche appeal relative to its more successful counterpart, coconut water.
