Maggi Coconut Milk Powder Review
Surprisingly fresh, the Maggi Coconut Milk Powder will lift up the flavor of your stews and curries.
Coconut milk is used widely around the world to make curries, stews, desserts. It is also used as a tasty plant-based milk-substitute for coffee and tea. Just like our beloved milk powder, coconut milk powder is a great addition to your pantry, especially if you are looking for alternatives with longer shelf lives. We tried the Maggi Coconut Milk Powder for its taste, freshness, and aroma. Here is our #FirstImpression.

#FirstImpression Of Maggi Coconut Milk Powder
Price and packaging – A 100 grams box of the Maggi Coconut Milk Powder is priced at Rs 100/-. It comes in a striking Maggi-yellow box. It is also available in a 1 kg and 25 gram pouch packaging.
The label – The nutrition label is very elaborate and 100 grams of this will provide 658 Kcal of energy. Ingredients include coconut milk solids (78.6%), maltodextrin, sodium caseinate (milk protein), and stabilizer (339(iii)). A recipe of Kerala Fish Curry is given on the back of the box.
Method of preparation – You can make thick and thin milk out of this coconut powder. To make thick milk add 3 Tbsp milk powder to 1 cup warm water (150 ml). To make thin milk add 1 Tbsp of milk powder to 1 cup warm water (150 ml). A tablespoon of coconut powder is approximately 6 grams. Making the ‘milk’ was easy and no lumps formed upon mixing with water.
Dry inspection – The dry coconut powder is a stark white in color. It is a fine powder, but when you taste a bit as is, you can feel the fine coconut fibers.
How we used it and flavor notes- We made a half cup of thick coconut milk and added it in a hearty homemade chicken stew. The flavor is a lot like what you would expect out of raw coconuts. We loved how delicate and fresh the coconut flavor is. There was no unnatural, overwhelming intense coconut aroma or taste.
We give the Maggi Coconut Milk Powder a big thumbs up for its fresh, delicate coconut flavor.
