Coconut Syrup

Coconut Syrup Almost every syrup manufacturer makes coconut syrup, which is produced from coconut milk, water and sugar.

You can replace coconut syrup in nearly every recipe with Cream of Coconut, which is a canned, thick coconut milk.

Coconut syrup comes in a variety of brands, sizes and prices. It can be used for cocktails, pancakes, desserts or tropical drinks. Consider the calorie content of coconut syrup when adding it to any food item.
