Coconut milk is smooth, creamy and has a watery consistency. It works well in dessert recipes and adds a unique flavor. Coconut milk is often added to fruit smoothies for its sweet, exotic flavor.
Flax milk contains no protein or fiber, but it is rich in omega 3 fatty acids. It adds a unique flavor and its consistency adds texture. Flax milk is ideal for gravies and sauces. Both sweetened and unsweetened flax milk is available, but if you are making a savory recipe, the unsweetened milk works best.
